HORRORTALK TV TILL KLEINERT INTERVIEW
Interview conducted by Hamzah Sarwar
With the UK DVD release of Till Kleinert's The Samurai approaching, we present the full interview we conducted for HorrorTalk TV at Film4 Frightfest 2014. HorrorTalk writer Hamzah Sarwar sat down with the director for a full and in-depth chat about the film, its influnces and what's next for the German director.
"THE SAMURAI is a thriller that gradually shifts into nightmare territory as it progresses." Director - Till Kleinert
On the edge of a dark forest, where the fear of wolves prevents locals from straying too far from home, a young police officer, Jakob receives a package addressed to the 'Lone Wolf'. As the night shift starts a mysterious caller claims the package belongs to him.
Venturing out alone, Jakob unknowingly delivers a samurai sword to a wild-eyed man in a wedding dress, who entices him to participate in a bloody crusade through the village.
As night wanes something hidden is unleashed to meet the first rays of daylight...
Till Kleinert's genre debut pulsates with relentless intensity, The Samurai is a daring, outrageous and fascinating journey into the sexual heart of darkness.
