On today’s show, Giles Alderson and co-host Dom Lenoir welcome the fantastic writer-director Axelle Carolyn! Her credits include Soulmate (2013), The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020), Creepshow (2021), American Horror Story (2021), and she’s here to talk about her latest feature film, The Manor (2021), which is part of the Welcome to the Blumhouse series on Amazon Prime.
Axelle dives deep into her filmmaking career. She talks about how she made the transition from actress to director and how she made her first feature film, Soulmate. She also discusses directing for TV, working with horror-legend Mike Flanagan, and the difference between indie and studio filmmaking.
Axelle also talks about her writing process, casting, working with a DOP, shot lists, how your life doesn’t change after a movie comes out, and many more things.
This is an absolute masterclass in writing, directing and horror filmmaking. Axelle is a true inspiration and we can’t wait to see what she does next. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with Axelle Carolyn!
After suffering a mild stroke, Judith Albright reluctantly moves into a historic nursing home where she becomes convinced a supernatural force is killing the residents.
