Hey folks! Since Eoin’s horror film, The Inside, is releasing today (and as a part of the promotion the producer team – with the support of RevolverUS -), Eoin was doing something like a Q&A (it was called IAMA but we have no idea what that’s mean to be honest) yesterday night on Reddit. Did you miss it? Well, don’t worry. Here you have some of the questions that all the fans were asking him and some replies, without forgetting that you can read the whole Q&A here!

I know this is supposed to be about The Inside, but I’m curious as to when Cold will be released and if you’ll ever dish tea about why the actors turned down a season 6 of Merlin.

  • Cold is hopefully out next year, been a slow process because it’s an indie and been waiting on it to get the best deal so everybody can see it, but it will be a worldwide release soon….timing is everything with indies….but I want the fans to see it soon, they’ve been very patient which I respect and am thankful for…..

Hi Eoin. I’m not a fan of horror movies, but I am a fan of your work. So why should I watch The Inside? Will is scar me for life?

  • Horror movies scare the bollox out of me too actually, but that’s why i made it, to make something scary that would scare me…..if you watch it at night with the lights off and your back facing the door, this will scare the crap outta you

Been a fan since Merlin. Where’d you get the idea to do a horror film?

  • I saw a music video, and it was the Corona’s or something, and it was one continuous take, and I decided I wanted to make a horror film that was one single take – that a lot of what was going on would happen outside the frame and like real time the actors and the audience wouldn’t know what was happening, so i wanted some confusion…..it almost worked, but not quite, we didn’t quite have the time to finesse that, so it grew into something else

Does the film mirror any of your own greatest fears, and did the process of making the film influence your fears in any way?

  • Yeah, I find the idea of energies, negative, drawing in darkness and spirits very real, and actually we had very odd experiences with this film, after I made it I had a lot of dark experiences, and even moved out of my apartment in LA afterwards. I think extreme negative energy can attract things out there that we don’t want to know about….so The Inside played on that because for me it’s a very real possibility, much more so than zombies and vampires

You screened The Inside in 2010, but made a different cut for the DVD. Did you change much and why?

  • I’m not even sure anymore, always seem to be doing something on this film! it’s a different cut to my initial screening, then some changes after the new cut I think again, but it’s pretty much the same since Frightfest 2012 I think….

And as I said you can see more in the topic! Don’t forget that ‘The Inside’ is releasing today on the USA so give it a look and enjoy your Halloween just in company with this wonderful horror film!

Good news folks! It seems that recent interviews Eoin have had with the media bring us the wonderful news about his debut novel ‘Kingdom of Scars’ being turned into a film, obviously directed by Eoin but this time he will not take a proper role in the film! Just the direction of it!

I’m definitely going to make it into a film, it just depends on when. I can’t play the lead character because he’s 15

I’ll definitely be shooting it in Ireland. This is part of why I wrote the book, I wanted to make it into a film and make it here in Ireland

It feels surreal, it’s surreal that people are buying something that I love and enjoying it.

You can read the whole interview here at goss.ie.

Also I’ve added two new pics (and will be adding more soon) about his book launch yesterday afternoon!
