Fessenden sits with Vice and talks climate change in horror:
“It was very important to me to take these old beloved horror tropes like Frankenstein, Dracula, or the shape-shifting creature and look at them in the modern era,” Fessenden, who also tackled climate ruination in Wendigo and No Telling, told VICE. “What I’ve found most sad and frustrating about humanity is its complete lack of attention to the awesome power of the natural world and this narcissism that drives human activity with no regard for the bigger picture.”
The scariest climate change-driven horror flick in recent memory is probably Larry Fessenden’s The Last Winter(2006), an underseen blood chiller about malevolent ghosts that are released from an Arctic oil reserve by a team of drillers.
