The Calling Hours



On this episode, we welcome Writer, Director, Producer and Actor Eddie Lengyel to the show. Join us for a great discussion about the rewards and challenges of indie filmmaking. As the maker of such genre fare as Hellweek (2010), Scarred (2016), Voodoo Rising (2016), American Poltergeist: The Curse of Lilith Ratchet (2018) and Mother Krampus 2: Slay Ride (2018), Eddie certainly has his fingers on the pulse of what is going on in the indie horror genre!

We will discuss his filmography, in particular Scarred and American Poltergeist: The Curse of Lilith Ratchet. Eddie takes us behind the scenes of indie filmmaking. We dive into what it was like filming in 6K with the Red Camera, how and where he met many of his actors and crew, and a look at some of the incredible locations he has utilized in film. Eddie also shares what it was like seeing his films on the shelves in stores like Wal-Mart and Family Video. While we definitely talk about the joys of filmmaking, we also discuss many of the challenges. Eddie shares the uphill battle trying to get press coverage in his local area, and the difficulty of indie marketing.
