Choice Cuts XIII: The Devil Made Us Do it!

An interview with John Erick Dowdle

For our 13th episode, I called in John Erick Dowdle to talk about his experiences as an independent filmmaker who is steadily on the rise in Hollywood. John, as you may or may not know, landed on the genre map with The Poughkeepsie Tapes (still unreleased from MGM) and took the leap over to Sony for Quarantine. Then, with brother Drew, he did Devil for producer M. Night Shyamalan. It’s no coincidence the film recently hit DVD and I roped him into the show, however, I’ve known John for a bit now and he’s a great interview.

So sit back and summon up whatever demonic forces you need to glue your peepers to the screen for eight minutes. Click on the player below to hear John talk about his favorite devil-themed flicks, his time working on his latest production, toiling in the Hollywood trenches and…the INTERNET (gasp!).

This is the last Choice Cuts of 2010, obviously. Hope you enjoy it!
