NHE host Scott Murphy chats to actor/producer/director Martin W. Payne about his cornucopia of upcoming projects, including a number of films we have previously discussed on this podcast, such as that have been discussed before Alex Churchyard’s & Michael Holiday’s Mosaic, Tony Mardon’s The Witches of the Sands, and MJ Dixon’s Slasher House III.

In the interview (beginning at 4:10), Martin talks to us about how he started his acting career through murder mysteries, how he tries hard not to be typecast, and how Horror-on-Sea has become the nexus point for a lot of figures working in low budget British indie horror. Plus, we talk about how he has amassed so many acting credits in a few short years, some of his most memorable moments working in horror, and how he would love to play a monster in Doctor Who.

Elsewhere in the episode, Scott makes a special announcement that the show will be moving back to fortnightly (every 2 weeks) as he is moving from Scotland to New Zealand in September. Don’t worry though — hopefully, we will be back to weekly in 2022!


Host Scott Murphy (host of the Guilty Pleasures Podcast) chats to the best indie talent the horror genre has to offer. While the show typically focuses on indie directors, actors and writers are often a part of the conversation as well.

Murphy is a freelance journalist, reviewer and podcaster. He got into horror in his early teens and has not looked back since. As well as reviewing on New Horror Express, he currently writes reviews for The Wee Review and has previously written for Slimehouse TV, Subtitled Online and The 405.  His favorite horror movie is The Shining, and his favorite horror novel is Interview with The Vampire.
