Owen Myre interview Psycho Goreman

Last week we got to interview the cast and director of Psycho Goreman and the kids were a real delight to talk to and this interview is with Owen Myre, enjoy!

AJ:
Hey Owen, how are you?

Owen:
I’m great. How are you?

AJ:
I’m doing good. So what has gotten you interested in Psycho Goreman?

Owen:
Originally, what got me interested in Psycho Goreman was when I read the script. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies, but once I noticed there was a lot of comedy involved, that just made me even more excited because I’ve never really… I mean, I’ve seen some comedy type horror movies, like Evil Dead and whatnot, but this was so kind of, I guess you could say special that I was just so excited to be on it. It was great.

AJ:
Yeah. And there is a lot tropes on kids’ movies, but it was like you said, it was a horror comedy and it was aimed towards adult demographics. So how was it like working with that script, meaning that it hadn’t been strokes on a lot of kids movies, but yet it was aimed at a different audience as well?

Owen:
It was fun because being a part of something that people that are older than you are going to see fuels my ego, if you know what I mean. It gives my ego a little bit, it makes me like, “Oh wow. These people think I’m funny, or these people are going to laugh at this movie that I’m in.” And it’s really fun. Especially the cast and crew that were involved, they were great.

AJ:
And how was it like working with the cast on this? Because everybody was so great, especially the relationship between you and your sister on this was so funny to watch and so kind of inspiring to watch. Kid actors kind of having this great chemistry with each other. Just how was it like that everyday on set of Psycho Goreman as well?

Owen:
So the casting crew was just… We all got along so well. Everyone knew each other’s name by the end of the entire filming. And working with Nita especially was just great. We just clicked immediately. And it kind of felt like we were brother and sister so much because she was always teasing me around, I was always teasing her around. But when we were filming, she was only teasing me because Luke just get walked all over. Yeah. But she’s so much like Mimi, it’s great. And she’s so great on set and no, it was really fun. I couldn’t have asked for a better partner.

AJ:
And how was it like working with Steven? He did a fantastic job directing Psycho Goreman. How was it like just being underneath his wing for the whole experience?

Owen:
Oh, that was also great. That was amazing because Steve, before I got this I had seen the movie The Void, which Steve had been a part of. And once I got this audition, I saw that he worked on it. I was like, “Oh, I can’t wait.” I already can’t wait because I love The Void. And working under Steve, he’s so creative. Meeting him before going on set was just so much fun because he’s such a bright person and he was great at directing this and all the monsters that he came up with. I don’t know how so much can fit in someone’s head. I don’t know. I don’t know how he does it.

AJ:
Right. And speaking of the monster that was in this, how was it like seeing that in the finished product and seeing it all come together?

Owen:
It was great because sometimes seeing it on set, I questioned like, “How are they going to make that work? That doesn’t look like it’s going to work at all.” But once I saw it in the finished product, I was like, “Well, I guess I’m wrong.” It works completely fine. It looks great. It looks amazing. And kind of almost being friends with the monsters before filming, it was funny, to say the least.

AJ:
Right. And how is it like getting the critical response that this has gotten so far? Because everything I’ve been reading has just been so overwhelmingly positive for Psycho Goreman. How is that like with the casting crew responding to the critical acclaim that it’s already got?

Owen:
I mean, exactly like you said, it’s overwhelming. I’ve never had such a following or response on something I’ve worked on before like this. So it just makes me so excited for when people get to actually see it.

AJ:
Right. And it’s almost like it has the feel of a cult classic instantly in the making and just having that built to it. Does that kind of make it special in a way as well, knowing that people finally will have a chance to see it and have this following when it’s finally released?

Owen:
Yeah. It’s really exciting because I don’t know if this is a common saying, but I feel this movie will take a lot of people out of their pandemic depression. You know what I mean?

AJ:
Yeah. Well, Owen, thank you so much for joining us at InfamousHorror.com today, it’s been really fun talking to you and congrats [crosstalk 00:06:08] on Psycho Goreman.

Owen:
Yeah. Thank you so much for having me. It was great talking to you.
