firghtfestHere’s another FrightFest interview with Dom:

Horrorcultfilms: How did you go about crafting a character like Seth?

“Even when playing despicable characters there’s got to be a charisma – the charisma doesn’t have to be attractive, but there’s got to be something about them. With Seth he’s a lonely man and he’s trying to fix himself – that was my way in. Though it’s not implied strongly in the film he doesn’t have a relationship with his parents, he hasn’t got any friends, never had a girlfriend. We agreed he’s never had sex. So he doesn’t know how to act. Things we know you shouldn’t do, people would ask him not to, and he’d say ‘well why not?’ He just doesn’t know what to do. In a way, I find that beguiling: the naivety is his charm, and he gets himself in obviously very hot water.

My favourite part is when he talks about Pete Jackson thinking about getting hypnotised to watch LOTR as a fan for the first time!

More about Pet!

More great reviews and interviews following Pet’s UK premiere:

Dom appeared on Channel 5’s Saturday show – Click image below to go to the full episode. Dom’s part starts around the 1 hour mark.

On the red carpet:

I hope these reviews give you a little bit of a taste and get you excited about seeing Pet – having seen it myself now I think it’s brilliant. Keep an eye out for the official release dates!

Electric Shadows: “Twists, surprises and back and forth power shifts make this a riveting battle of wits and nerve, whose secrets are best left to discover for yourself.”

We Make Movies on Weekends: “With grim gory, the film is largely character driven and that’s the brilliance of it all. As Solo and Monaghan electrify their dialogue with emotion and a beguiling power-play, you’ll be immersed in the sinister world.”

Flickering Myth: “The pure genius of Carles Torrens’s Pet is that it constantly plays with audience expectations. Just when you think you’ve got Pet all worked out, Jeremy Slater’s script pulls out the rug, creating one of the best cinematic and storytelling experiences of 2016.”

Screen Daily: “A suspenseful mystery thriller which initially seems a straight lift from Fowles’ book, The Collector, but develops in other, surprising directions.”

And I’m bringing back an older interview from SXSW because… I can! And I forgot to post it when this came out.. Enjoy!

New TV show coming up with Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd!

We’ve been seeing hints of this for a while now…

It looks like after Billy appeared on Dominic’s Wild Things show that we might be able to look forward to even more! Dominic Monaghan has just confirmed during interviews at the UK premiere of PET that there’s a new TV show coming up that he worked on together with Billy Boyd.

Travel / business of food show… sounds really good! From what I hear, it should be a project that’ll finally be revealed in 2017.
