Interview with Director Marcel Sarmiento

The ABCs of Death has gathered together directors, assigned them a letter and told them to make a short film relating to death. Marcel Sarmiento was assigned the letter D. His debut feature was Heavy Petting, a light dog-related romcom but his follow-up feature, Deadgirl, tugged him entirely in the other direction. Deadgirl relates the tale of two high school outcasts who discover a chained and naked dead girl who cannot die, completely refreshing the zombie genre, making it much more disturbing and distinguished. It’s a horror film that is a great watch because it’s disturbing, shocking, uncomfortable, unflinching and interesting – qualities which are rare to find in the genre. Marcel Sarmiento is a very lovely director, one who I feel incredibly sorry for because of my faulty recording apparatus. He spoke to us about his segment, amongst a feast of other topics, all of which you’ll find below.
