It was one of the highlights of last year’s Horror Channel Frightfest, Bad Heads aka Mauvaises Tetes; we got the chance to quiz writer/director/producer Rebekah Fieschi.
Tell us about Bad Heads?
Bad Heads is a horror comedy in the spirit of classic MGM and Universal monster movies from the 1920s/30s. It tells the story of an odd, socially awkward woman, Jenny, who decides to overcome her loneliness by creating love from scratch.
What can audiences expect from Bad Heads?
Beautiful 4:3 black and white cinematography. A playful, tongue-in-cheek horror film with a dark, rather troubling undertone.
What was your reaction when you heard you’d be screening at the event?
I was completely exhausted when I read the e-mail so I had to read it over several times before believing it. After that I cried from joy and jumped around in my apartment until, finally, my boyfriend came home and I could announce it to someone.
What sets Bad Heads apart from the other shorts shown at Frightfest?
Bad Heads takes an unconventional visual and sensitive approach to horror, it is elegant and glamorous instead of gory but still stays with you in a subtler way.
