In 2021, the Netflix horror film, THE BLOCK ISLAND SOUND, was released and it got very strong reviews by critics with a 90% rating on the Rotten Tomatoes website. It portrays itself as a supernatural thriller but based off what we see, it throws in a large science fiction aspect that turns the film into something quite different than most folks may have thought when watching the trailer.
The film was written and directed by Rhode Island native brothers Matthew and Kevin McManus while starring their sister Michaela McManus. But this isn’t from your regular indy directors. The McManus brothers have worked on such programs as COBRA KAI and AMERICAN VANDAL.
After reviewing the film on Episode 483 of the podcast, your crew reached out to the filmmakers and Matthew McManus came on and joined us answering all our questions about one of Dark Discussions top horror films of 2021; the film is one that fits into co-host Phil’s wheelhouse actually. Though the interview was recorded in Q4 of 2021, after some editing work for sound quality, the interview is finally able to be released and hopefully give move people awareness to one awesome film.
