Available from Aug 2 from Uncork’d Entertainment, Max Perrier’s Feed the Devil tells of a duo who go head-to-head with a demonic beast in the wilderness.
SYNOPSIS — Given a map to marijuana planted in the remote wilderness of Alaska, Marcus and his girlfriend Stella head off on an expedition to cut down the crop and make easy money. The mission quickly turns deadly when Stella vanishes and the quest to find her uncovers a trail of victims tied to an ancient Indian myth. The search becomes a lethal game of survival when they are hunted down by the demonic beast behind the legend.
One of the film’s stars, the lovely Ardis Barrow, took a few minutes to speak with us and answer a few questions.
LEGLESSCORPSE: What’s your favorite horror flick?
ARDIS BARROW: That’s a tough one… probably Silence of the Lambs because it was the first one I ever saw and it had such an effect on me.
LC: Is there a type of horror flick you prefer over another though?
AB: I prefer psychological/suspenseful/eerie type of horror stuff. I think my imagination is more deranged than a lot of what’s out there so when it can run away with stuff I get really freaked out.
LC: How would you categorise Feed the Devil?
AB: Feed the Devil really crosses multiple genres. It’s a mix of psychological thriller and traditional horror flick. There are even some very dark comedic moments here and there. Think Deliverance meets Cannibal Holocaust.
LC: Was this a gig that came to you via traditional means?
AB: Pretty traditionally; I self submitted and sent in my audition tape.
LC: How alike the character are you?
AB: On the face of things we aren’t very similar, coming from such vastly different backgrounds, but personality-wise I think we are extremely alike. Her sort of wary way of observing things, feisty resilience, desire to connect, and refusal to succumb to her fear I related to.
LC: You would’ve spent a lot of time with Jared Cohn. How did you two get along?
AB: I don’t think you could find two more different people than Jared and I, but it totally worked. We bickered and joked like siblings a lot on set, and had this real camaraderie and friendship that grew out of it.
LC: Has doing Feed the Devil opened other doors for you?
AB: As it hasn’t been released yet, nothing specifically linked to this project. But in a greater sense, I learned such an incredible amount on this film that has fed into my other work on camera. This was my first feature, and to have such an incredible role right out of the gate was immeasurable.
Thank you, Ardis, for your time, and we wish you the very best of luck with Feed The Devil and all of your future endeavors! We’ll be watching!
