Joe Lynch is a director working in various film genres, from horror to action to comedy (both intentional and unintentional). His feature credits include Everly with Salma Hayek, Knights of Badassdom starring Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten, the anthology film Chillerama, and Wrong Turn 2 with Henry Rollins. Lynch also co-stars and executive produces the TV show Holliston and co-hosts the popular podcast The Movie Crypt on Geek Nation with fellow filmmaker Adam Green (Hatchet). He loves jump cuts, practical blood and making his days.
On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film Podcast, to mark the release of Dolph Lundgren’s latest movie, Mike Mendez’s B-horror Don’t Kill It, regular Talkhouse Film contributor Joe Lynch, also the director of Everly and the forthcoming Mayhem, talks with the iconic action star. Among the topics the two discuss, aside from Mendez’s film, include: Lundgren modeling his career on Clint Eastwood, his move into writing and directing, what he’s learned from directors as diverse Sidney J. Furie and Sylvester Stallone, why it’s worse to be chased by a 50-year-old guy with a shotgun than a 20-year-old with a shotgun, the political incorrectness of movie violence, the “Harvey Keitel penis genre,” and much more.
