David Schmoeller Talks Film

David Schmoeller has written, produced and directed films for more than thirty years. His first feature, "Tourist Trap," has been selected as one of the 130 landmark horror films of all time in Jonathon Rigby's 2012 book, Studies in Terror, Landmarks of Horror Cinema. And Stephen King also praised the movie for Schmoeller's "uncanny power to present terror in even more effective ways than many major studio releases.” He recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in World Cinema at the Fantaspoa Film Festival in Porto Alegre, Brazil. He teaches film at University Nevada Las Vegas and talks to us about horror movies, his career and making indie films from Las Vegas.
