Interview: Larry Fessenden talks Cabin Fever 2, House of the Devil and I Sell the Dead


The director of several well-received horror films (Habit, The Last Winter) and producer of many others, Larry Fessenden has also made scores of appearances in mainstream films from the likes of Kelly Reichardt and Neil Jordan. Simon sat down with him at a bar here in Montreal to discuss his latest producing and acting gigs, including I Sell the Dead, The House of the Devil, and the forthcoming Cabin Fever 2, about which he has some less-than-spectacular news. What didn’t make the cut: an extended discussion about fruit flies and their effect (or lack thereof) on alcoholic beverages; Larry’s impressions of Werner Herzog; a bemused bartendress asking us who he is and what he’s being interviewed about.
