A series of illuminating interviews from the Midnight Madness premiere in Toronto have been posted online.
The full Q&A with the director, writer, cast and some of the producers [this contains some spoilers as it takes place after the screening], can be viewed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmHBOrRO5cU&feature=share.
David Bruckner (director) and Joe Barton (writer) are talking to Bonnie Laufer Krebs about The Ritual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6wS4nG5r6U&feature=share.
Sam Troughton (Dom) & Arsher Ali (Phil) talk about The Ritual with Bonnie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWwAQJS_pmo&feature=share, and this episode contains my fave line yet about the making of the film (there were some extreme and arduous conditions): “It started to snow and I was in my pants on a stake” [Sam Troughton].
While Rafe Spall (Luke) and Robert James-Collier (Hutch) talk about how they developed their roles in The Ritual https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNOkX2BvAtY&feature=share.
I also watched part of the shoot in the Carpathian Mountains in Romania, this time last year, and I’ll write more about it once the film has been released.
