Fantastic Fest 2014 – ABCs OF DEATH 2 director interviews: The Soska Twins & Tristan Risk


Continuing our interviews from Fantastic Fest, we’ve got another interview with a few of the talented directors who helped bring ABCs OF DEATH 2 to life… er, death? This article contains my chat with Jen and Sylvia Soska (aka The Soska Twins) and actress Tristan Risk. Our apologies for the extremely bad lighting here, but the rooms they used for interviews weren’t lit at all, unfortunately. This was done in the newly refurbished Highball bar, inside the karaoke rooms, which explains the lack of bright light. Jen and Sylvia directed the letter “T” for “Torture Porn”, and let’s just say it’s one of the craziest segments in the film (and that’s saying a LOT). It was fun to talk to these girls for a variety of reasons. I’ve always wanted to meet Jen and Sylvia, especially since they’re about to work on my buddy Jimmy Palmiotti’s comic book film adaptation PAINKILLER JANE. They just recently also directed SEE NO EVIL 2 with wrestling superstar Kane. I can honestly tell you this was one of the most fun interviews I’ve ever done:

ABCs OF DEATH 2 hits VOD on October 2, and will also be available in select theaters on October 31
