The arrival of a raucous next-door neighbor (Alex Winter) disrupts the procrastinating life of aspiring prog-rock musician (Jonah Ray Rodrigues) and leads him down a gory new road in director Josh Forbes' new movie Destroy All Neighbors, and with the ambitious horror comedy now streaming on Shudder, Daily Dead recently had the pleasure of speaking with Alex, Jonah, and Josh about getting the band together (so to speak) to rock out creatively and bring Destroy All Neighbors to life in bold and blood-soaked fashion!
You can watch the full interview below in which Alex, Jonah, and Josh discuss the collaborative spirit on the set of Destroy All Neighbors, the shared desire to showcase amazing practical effects throughout the film, and cinematic inspirations (such as Evil Dead II) that came to mind while making their new movie.
Synopsis: "William Brown (Jonah Ray Rodrigues), a neurotic, self-absorbed musician determined to finish his prog-rock magnum opus, faces a creative roadblock in the form of a noisy and grotesque neighbor named Vlad (Alex Winter). Finally working up the nerve to demand that Vlad keep it down, William inadvertently decapitates him. But, while attempting to cover up one murder, William’s accidental reign of terror causes victims to pile up and become undead corpses who torment and create more bloody detours on his road to prog-rock Valhalla. DESTROY ALL NEIGHBORS is a twisted splatter-comedy about a deranged journey of self-discovery full of goopy practical FX, a well-known ensemble cast, and LOTS of blood."
