Interview: Maf Lewis on “5 Great British Horror Films”

by Stuart Wright

In his latest podcast, host Stuart Wright talks with the filmmaker half of I Speak Machine, Maf Lewis, about 5 Great British Horror Films – which include:

  • Pogle’s Wood (1965)
  • Whistle And I will Come (1968)
  • The Spirit Of Dark And Lonely Water (1973)
  • The Omen (1976)
  • 28 Days Later (2002)

With nods to Don’t Look Now (1974) and Kill List (2011)

I Speak Machine are vocalist and synth-nerd Tara Busch and filmmaker Maf Lewis. Together they make brooding soundtracks and horror/sci-fi films, creating audio and visual in unison to give both elements equal prominence. The result is a “live score film”, where the film is screened only with the music performed live by Tara.

They released their first soundtrack, the score to their mindbending sci-fi short “The Silence”, in 2014 on Lex Records. They released their latest soundtrack to their short film Zombies 1985 in May of 2017 in collaboration with producer/ writer Benge (Wrangler, John Foxx). The soundtrack & film is a sinister, synth-centric love letter to 1980’s horror.
