SXSW Film Interview: V/H/S: Tape 57 Writer Simon Barrett

I had a chance to discuss the Tape 57 segment of V/H/S with its writer Simon Barrett, Tape 57 serves as the segment that ties the film together. Barrett tends to get on some tangents in relation to his work on V/H/S and comes across as a guy that is packed with ideas. I’m still a bit pissed at my self for not having caught his highly praised script work for A Horrible Way to Die and You’re Next, though that something I plan to correct as soon. Give the interview a watch and let us know if you’ve seen A Horrible Way to Die or You’re Next and or plan to see V/H/S in the comments below.

About Lost in Reviews

Named after the 2003 film Lost in Translation, Lost in Reviews set out to embody the philosophy of this film in a website. Discouraged with the lack of passion in modern day criticism, founders Angela Davis and Ryan Davis created the entertainment review site in 2009. The idea being that, this would be the go-to place for people to find that something that was missing in their life through film or music.

Lost in Reviews is based in Kansas City, Dallas and Chicago. The site covers all aspects of entertainment, but tries to focus more on the easily over-looked. Lost in Reviews is the home to the starving filmmaker and indie bands everywhere. If you’re looking for a voice or trying to share in a vision, then Lost in Reviews just may be the place to help you get there. As the tag line for Lost in Translation says: “Everyone wants to be found.” So find yourself Lost in Reviews.
