Last week we got to interview Natasha Kermani the director of the excellent dark comedic horror film “Lucky” here is the synopsis for the film.
A self-help book author finds herself stalked by a threatening figure who returns to her house night after night. She is forced to take matters into her own hands when she can’t get help from those around her.
AJ: How did Lucky all come about?
Natasha: Well, Brea Grant had wrote this surreal script. When I took a look at it I noticed it had a great social commentary and I also loved the comedic aspect of it too.
AJ: Right, we haven’t really seen this type of “slasher” parody being played so straight before we have the “Happy Death Day” franchise director you think the independent studio aspect helped the creativity of “Lucky”?
Natasha: Yes, I do believe it helped, because even though this is still satirical it’s very dead pan and serious at times. Where as if we had a bigger studio backing us who knows, we may have gotten a “Happy Death Day” situation where they would have wanted more of the same.
AJ: One of my favorite bits of the movie is when the husband to Brea’s character says “Oh yeah, that’s the killer that tries to come in and kills us every night” there must have been so many deadpan lines with deliveries of the same response that caused a lot of character breaking on set
Natasha: You would think so, yeah, actually these actors knew how much time we had to shoot and they were terrific delivering lines like that all the time throughout.
AJ: Well thank you for joining us today Natasha, it’s been fun and congratulations on the success of “Lucky”
