Frightfest 2017 Interview: Louis Melville talks ‘Boots on the Ground’

by Stuart Wright

In his latest FrightFest 2017 interview, host Stuart Wright talks to director Louis Melville about his film Boots on the Ground, which has its world premiere at the festival on Saturday 26th August.

Afghanistan October 2014. Five British soldiers, trying to stay alive on the last night of the Afghan War, face not only the Taliban, but also supernatural powers more terrifying than anything they’ve encountered before. As the night unfolds and their mission is finally explained to them, they find themselves engulfed in a labyrinthine nightmare and time-shift forces seemingly from another realm and century. One of the most innovative and challenging British movies of the year, shot with 360 degree style immersion techniques using head-cams, director Louis Melville’s twisting and turning squaddie shocker is a genre ground breaker.

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.
