“The Zombie King” interview
December, 10 2011        Posted By admin        No Comments »

Andy talks to Edward Furlong about The Zombie King…

So, picture the scene.

Myself and The Harleyquin are standing, frozen, in deepest, darkest Somerset. We are on a farm on the outskirts of the market town of Shepton Mallet, blowing into our hands for warmth.

All around, people are bustling here and there while walkie-talkies hiss in the background. Why are we standing here in the cold?

Well, we are on the set of Northern Girl Production’s horror comedy, The Zombie King and awaiting an audience with a legend, Terminator 2: Judgement Day actor, Edward Furlong.

Edward freakin’ Furlong! John Connor?

Yes, the very same. Star of James Cameron’s aforementioned action epic, never mind such titles as Adam Rifkin’s excellent Detroit Rock City and the brutal (but wonderful) American History X. He also appeared in genre pics Pet Sematary 2, the 2010 remake of Night Of The Demons and Brainscan, with the great Frank Langella.

So we escape the cold into the warmth of a large country kitchen and sit around a huge dining table. Myself, The Harleyquin and a very, very jet-lagged Edward Furlong, who is sipping from a can of Red Bull.

I have to say that Edward Furlong is a cool guy. Funny and laid back, our interview was, for the most part, laughing. I opened the questioning…

AndyErupts – So in your own words can you tell me a bit about The Zombie King?

Edward Furlong – I play Samuel Peters, The Zombie King. I’m basically pretty pissed off about my wife dying so I get some evil shit out of the Book of the Dead, bring a bunch of zombies back and I get to ride around on a motorcycle.

AE – Are you enjoying that?

EF – I haven’t driven it yet. I literally just got in last night from LA, so I’m exhausted.

AE – I had planned on asking how you were enjoying the UK so far but you wont have had much chance to enjoy it.

EF – No. I was actually here a couple of weeks ago for Comic-Con but its been pretty much sleeping and working today. I’d like to get out and do some stuff but we are way out in the country. Not much to do out here.

AE – What was it that drew you to the script?

EF – I liked the humour. I like being able to just shoot something real quick and you know, get out. (laughs) I love horror movies. And Corey Feldman is in it. Thats pretty exciting.

AE – You mentioned that you love horror films. Whats your favourite horror film and why?

Wow. That’s a good question. Well you gotta love The Shining. Texas Chainsaw Massacre too. I don’t know.

AE – You have done some work within the genre in the past, such as Pet Sematary 2, Night Of The Demons and Brainscan. Which of these was your favourite to work on?

Oh God. I loved working on Night Of The Demons. That was fun, plus it was in New Orleans, so I had a good time there.

AE – You had a recurring role as Shane Casey on CSI:NY and that was a pretty nasty character. Did you enjoy doing that?

EF – I did actually, yeah. It was the first TV that I did and it’s a totally different experience to doing film. It was cool. It was a character that was able to develop as we did more and more episodes and I never really knew exactly where it was going or what the writers had planned but it was really fun to do.

I was kinda sad i had to die off but i guess you can only escape so many times, huh?

AE – I want to just briefly mention Terminator. What are your thoughts on the direction that the franchise has taken?

EF – Ah God, man. I might sound like a prick but I dont even really pay attention to them now… Well, I mean Im not in them. (All laugh) I didn’t really watch them. I have seen bits and parts of them on TV and stuff and they’re all right from what Ive seen.

(Andy shakes his head)

Oh theyre horrible? (Laughs) I don’t know but I kind of think that if you take away Jim Cameron and Linda Hamilton and now, even Arnold away, and it’s not really Terminator anymore.

AE – What are your plans for the future?

EF – I have no idea. I have another couple of films coming out, one called For The Love Of Money, so just keep your eyes open.

AE – So, this is a zombie film, and I’m a massive zombie movie fan. If there was a zombie apocalyspe, where would you head to and why?

EF – (Laughs) Honestly, I remember the very beginning of Shaun Of The Dead and it’s one of my favourite zombie scenarios ever. It probably wouldnt be that much different to that.

AE – So you’d just stay in the house and have a cup of tea?

EF – Yeah. I live in downtown LA and theres a lot of homeless people that look like zombies. (laughs)

AE – Its quite similar in Glasgow…

EF – (Laughs) It probably wouldnt even register immediately. It would take a while to set in.

AE – Thanks for talking to us, Edward, and all the best for the film.

EF – No problem. My pleasure, man.

Thanks to Edward Furlong for taking the time to talk to us. The Zombie King is set for release in 2012.
