CS Video: Scare Me interview with writer/director/star Josh Ruben
Just in time for the film’s debut on Shudder and for the start of the Halloween season, ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with Scare Me‘s writer, director and star Josh Ruben to discuss his brilliant horror-comedy. Our interview can be viewed in the player below!
In the film, Fred, a frustrated copywriter, checks into a winter cabin to start his first novel. While jogging in the nearby woods, he meets Fanny, a successful and smug young horror author who fuels his insecurities. During a power outage, Fanny challenges Fred to tell a scary story.
As a storm sets in, they pass the time spinning spooky tales fueled by the tensions between them, and Fred is forced to confront his ultimate fear: Fanny is the better storyteller. The stakes are raised when they’re visited by a horror fan who delivers levity (and a pizza) to the proceedings.
This film marks the feature directorial debut of Josh Ruben (College Humor), who is also starring alongside Aya Cash (You’re The Worst, The Boys) and Chris Redd (Saturday Night Live). It is written and produced by Ruben with Alex Bach, and Daniel also set as producers.
Scare Me is now available to stream on Shudder!
