[Podcasts] The Boo Crew Gets Haunted by ‘Ghosts of War’ Director Eric Bress and Star Brenton Thwaites

On another new episode of the Boo Crew Podcast, we are joined by writer / director Eric Bress (The Butterfly Effect, Final Destination 2 and 4) and actor Brenton Thwaites (Oculus, Disney’s Maleficent). They talk about their new film Ghosts of War, available now on VOD and digital. It’s a really unique WWII movie that becomes the ultimate haunted house adventure, set in a stunning Victorian mansion that is one of the story’s most fascinating characters.

“The exterior of the house you’re looking at, first off it’s set in Sofia, Bulgaria.”, explains Eric. “I guess in the early 90s, democracy took over but it used to be a monarchy. We used the King’s castle! It was the most imposing thing around and the sets, all credit goes to Antonello Rubino who’s this brilliant production designer who was able to build, a first floor, a second floor, a balcony, so that when the guys walk in for the very first time and we follow them into the house, it’s totally seamless!”

Brenton Thwaites plays Chris, an American soldier who leads his small troop portrayed by an unforgettable Kyle Gallner (the car-singing emo legend in Jennifer’s Body), Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy), Alan Ritchson (DC’s TITANS) and Sklyar Astin (Pitch Perfect), to hold a deserted French chateau at the end of the war. The unit quickly discovers that the castle is not all that it seems and the tale develops into a manic Saving Private Ryan by way of The Haunting Of Hill House meets Jacob’s Ladder.

Eric hints, “Even before we get to the house, the chateau and the movie even begins, every one of those characters is revealing some Easter egg, or something about themselves that will make a whole lot of sense later…for the second timers!”

Brenton recalls his first meeting with Eric about the film, in a very fitting location.

“Eric meets you in a cemetery. Not a Starbucks, or a cafe, or at his house or my house. He rides his Harley Davidson to the cemetery!” Thwaites admits he was a bit trepidatious about being able to pull of this role. “I remember one of my things was, I don’t think I could be that guy, that battle hardened Lieutenant who’s yelling at the men. If I was Alan Ritchson or Theo Rossi, I’d just look at me and go…we’re not doing any of that..sorry. So it was important to me to build a character that really felt like he is in a position that he doesn’t want to be in. He’s leading out of necessity, out of loyalty to his duties. I feel like coming upon these characters in a tired state, they don’t want to be there, no one wants to be there, was kind of an access for me in a way to have all those emotional things broken done and be a little bit more vulnerable, be a little bit more open as a leader. Which I thought was my strength and was one of the conversations we had in the graveyard…alone. Wondering if Eric Bress was gonna murder me or not!”

Brenton elaborates on his relationship with the genre that started back in 2013 working with writer / director Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep / The Haunting Of Hill House / Hush).

“You know I wasn’t really a horror fan until I made my first horror movie which was Oculus. I was thrown into the world of being forced to really believe you are in that situation no matter how heightened or how supernatural, surreal or unbelievable. That’s kind of really where I started enjoying the process of making horrors. I’ll say that I love making horrors, but watching them, I get too scared, simple!”

For more with Eric Bress and Brenton Thwaites including how Eric played with tension as the architect of death in his two entries in the Final Destination franchise, to Brenton’s experience working within the mechanics of Disney’s storytelling, check out The Boo Crew Podcast Episode 144.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
