This week we initiate another woman into the Switchblade Sisterhood. Avra Fox-Lerner, writer of the new Seann William Scott led horror, Bloodline, is on the show to talk about 1999’s Ravenous. She and April discuss this bizarre and twisty cannibalistic horror film, and how it’s a miracle that it got made in the first place. Avra elaborates on discovering aspects of her film through the editing process. Plus she details how she finally broke into the film industry by pitching a screenplay to Blumhouse that they said they would never make.
Bloodline is streaming now.
And if you haven’t seen Ravenous – you should!
