Exclusive Video: David Arquette on The Legend of Hallowdega

NASCAR and the supernatural meet in Terry Gilliam’s short film

Director Terry Gilliam has made a lot of awesome movies and quite a few crazy ones as well, but in his new short film The Legend of Hallowdega, he gets to explore the world of NASCAR, specifically the legendary Talladega Superspeedway where all the spectacular car crashes may be traced back to the legend that it was built on an old Indian burial ground. The short film stars Justin Kirk as the host of the show “World of the Unexplained,” who is investigating all those mysterious crashes with the help of an eccentric ghost hunter known as Kiyash Monsef, played by David Arquette, who has some crazy ideas how to solve the mysteries of Talladega.

ShockTillYouDrop.com had a chance to sit down with Arquette during one of his rare visits to New York City to find out how he became involved in Gilliam’s short film, and some of the crazy things he got to do in the role, plus he also talked a little bit about Wes Craven’s Scream 4, and his own future horror plans. You can also watch the trailer for the short film here.

Legend of Hallowedga premieres on the Official Site, LegendofHallowdega.com, on Halloween this Sunday, October 31, but you can get a sneak peak at the first chapter on ESPN just before the AMP Energy Juice 500 from Talladega at 1PM Eastern, also on Sunday. You can also catch the Live streaming from the red carpet premiere of the short film from Arquette’s theater, Beacher’s Madhouse, at 11PM Pacific tonight at the AMP Energy Facebook Page.
