Interview: Douglas Schulze – Director of Thorns (Video/Audio)

Directed by Douglas Schulze and starring Jon Bennett, Cassandra Schomer, Bo Shumaker, and Doug Bradley, Thorns is a visceral apocalyptic horror movie.

An ex-priest working for NASA is sent to investigate a remote observatory that went silent after receiving a radio signal from deep space. He discovers that signal has set in motion the biblical end of times.

We spoke to director Douglas Schulze about the movie, working with such a great cast, the benefit of practical effects, inspirations, the strong religious overtones, and so much more.
