The Movie Crypt

May 24, 2021

PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker William Brent Bell (THE DEVIL INSIDE, STAY ALIVE, THE BOY) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his career journey. From getting hip pocketed by an agent at ICM off of his first short film… to focusing on writing the kinds of movies he wanted to see without the safety net of a fallback… to the joy of making his first major script sale (SPARKLE AND CHARM) right when things were seeming their most dire… to making STAY ALIVE with McG… to the real story behind the polarizing ending to THE DEVIL INSIDE… to finishing his latest (SEPARATION - in theaters now!) and shooting his next (ORPHAN: FIRST KILL) during the pandemic… William shares some absolutely incredible tales from the trenches! Dr. Arwen and the boys weigh in on Amazon Prime turning in to a new form of YouTube, Adam laments over Prime streaming censored versions of the HATCHET films without indicating so, and William teaches everyone a lesson in humility with how gracefully and professionally he reflects back on hurdles that could easily have soured most artists. (Filmmakers take note!)
