Episode 27: Tyler MacIntyre on ‘The Devil Lives Here’
It isn’t often that a low-budget horror film tackles the concept of parallel historical timelines. Then again, very few horror films also recognize the potential of a character named the Honey Baron, an evil slaveowner whose acts of cruelties reverberate across centuries.
This is the premise behind The Devil Lives Here, a 2015 horror film from Brazilian filmmakers Rodrigo Gasparini and Dante Vescio. Combining Evil Dead-esque scares with a mature thread of historical horror, The Devil Lives Here walks a fine line between high-concept and high-octane horror – and walks it well.
Tyler MacIntyre joins the Matts for a fun-filled conversation about international horror and the thrill of discovery that only comes with the festival circuit. Tyler also shares his own progress as a horror filmmaker and fan, beginning with his earliest days of watching VHS tapes and culminating in his own work as writer-director behind several cult classics from the past decade.
