I really enjoy the evolution of horror. As times change, what scares us also changes. This means that filmmakers must adjust to make sure that they are delivering frights to their audiences. With that said some of the fundamentals in creating a horror flick stay the same. We see this in Adam Ethan Crow‘s new horror film from 1091 Pictures, Lair.
A lot of us that travel often have had the experience of staying at an Airbnb instead of your traditional hotel/motel. But what if you stumble upon an Airbnb and didn’t know that it contained possessed possessions that had the ability to conjure up malignant spirits? Or what if the owner of the place was secretly watching you from a close distance? Lots of very good questions that we get to explore in Lair.
With the release of Lair this week On Demand and VOD, LRM Online’s Emmanuel Gomez spoke with the writer and director Adam Ethan Crow. The extraordinary part of this film is the journey that Crow had to go through to get it made. Having it greenlit by Fox, only to cancel it once they were acquired by Disney. Then in post-production, had to deal with the unfortunate circumstances of the pandemic. In the end, getting the film made is another fabulous part of the story.
We also talk about his process of developing scares. As well as the unorthodox villain that he created for the film. It was a fabulous conversation that you can check out down below! Lair is now available on VOD and Digital.
Here is the synopsis for Lair
When Ben Dollarhdye is accused of murder, saying he was possessed by a demonic force, Steven Caramore investigates his friend’s claims, setting off a chain of events that forces a young family into a terrifying battle for survival.
