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 John Coovert

John was fortunate enough to be born in one of the most magical times of cinema: the eighties. Having an ultra cool aunt that introduced him to awesome sci-fi (Alien, Aliens, Terminator, Predator) and horror (Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, Jaws) on VHS, and a cool mom that took him to the theater to see films like Back to the Future, Return of the Jedi, and Goonies, it's no wonder he fell in love with one of the finest forms of escapist entertainment, film. John continues to appreciate all forms of film, actively seeking out information and discussing it with all who will listen.
