Q&A with Guillermo Carbonell, Director of “The Plague”
Name a Horror character you relate to on a spiritual level? Who is your Horror spirit animal?
Dennis Alan from The Serpent and the Rainbow
You’ve gotta go through some bad ideas to get to the good ones. Tell us one of your bad ideas. How do you get past the bad ones to find your spark?
A jealous ghost that kills his ex-wife boyfriends.
I just try to imagine myself at a video rental store, reading the back of the VHS box of that film.
Do you consider yourself part of a horror community?
I see myself more like a horror tourist with an overdue visa.
When you’re building the world of your film, where do you look for inspiration?
I usually try to put myself on the emotional point of view of the characters.
What would you do if you woke up inside of your film?
Probably would wake up inside one of those metal coffins. Just cry for the next 100 years.
Who would be on your ultimate horror villain squad?
The alien from “The Thing”, Pinhead and the Blind Man from “Don’t Breathe”.
Freddy or Jason? Freddy
Stephen King or H.P. Lovecraft? King
Practical or CGI? As much practical as possible.
Post Apocalypse or Pre Apocalypse? Post
And finally, Ghostface would like to know ‘What’s your favourite scary movie?’
“In the mouth of darkness”. A truly underrated gem.
