I’ve been a fan of Axelle Carolyn since her first short film THE LAST POST, through her feature debut SOULMATE and onward. And when I saw her episode of THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR – one of the most moving and unsettling 60 minutes of Gothic horror poetry I’ve ever seen – I became aware of a burgeoning auteur. And so, we close out the year with a huge, career-to-date interview with the writer/director about her growing body of work and her singular creative point of view. A true dissection of an artist whose evolution is exciting to witness. Cover art by the brilliant (to put it mildly) Suspirialand – the concept was to take Axelle and some of her imagery and “Ingrid Pitt” her. And Suspirialand delivered, hard. Really excited about this unique issue.
