Interview With The Cast Of ‘Bellflower’

Bellflower is certainly one of the more unique and original films that I had the chance to see this year.  As I described in my review (found HERE), the film is about two guys, a girl, and flamethrowers.  Medusa, a muscle car equipped with flamethrowers is a major symbol of the film, but it is also a relationship drama of sorts, as writer/director/star Evan Glodell’s character deals with the journey of tormented love, mixed with some surreal imagery that channels the apocalyptic stakes that this film throws at the viewer.  I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to interview the entire cast of the film, which is what will follow below.

Embedded and linked below is an interview, which took place during the busy time that was San Diego Comic Con 2011.  Myself and a few others received the opportunity to interview all of the main stars involved with the production of Bellflower.  The participants included the previously mentioned writer/director/star Evan Glodell, as well as stars Jessie Wiseman, Tyler Dawson, Rebekah Brandes, and Vincent Grashaw.  The conversation was a fun discussion that goes over many elements of the film, including its origins, what went into the making of the film, the casting and scripting process, and what Medusa meant to everyone.  The interview lasts about 20 minutes and is uncut and uncensored (towards the end there is a bit more language…instigated by me).  The audio quality is not as pristine as I would have liked, but it should still be clear enough, so I hope people will enjoy the interview and be sure to check out Bellflower, which will be rolling out in limited release during the rest of this summer.

Best friends Woodrow and Aiden spend all of their free time building MAD MAX-inspired flamethrowers and muscle cars in preparation for a global apocalypse.  But when Woodrow meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love, he and Aiden quickly integrate into a new group of friends, setting off on a journey of love and hate, betrayal, infidelity, and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.
