Without a doubt, Neil Marshall has made some of the boldest genre films of the past fifteen years. Dog Soldiers was like Predator meets a Werewolf flick, Doomsday was like a crazed mashup of The Road Warrior and Escape from New York and The Descent is just one of the scariest, most claustrophobic horror films of the new millennium.

After his last feature film, the brutal Roman chaser Centurion, Marshall took the reigns of two of the most ambitious shows on television, directing what are considered the best episodes of both Game of Thrones for HBO and Black Sails for Starz.

Tales of Halloween sees Marshall teaming up with nine of his closest filmmaking friends as well as his wife Axelle Carolyn, to create an anthology series that's as fun as it is scary - something he thinks has been lacking in some of the more recent horror anthologies including V/H/S and ABC's of Death both of which he passed on being a part of.

I got a few minutes on the phone to chat with the UK director about his killer pumpkin segment, Bad Seed, as well as Mad Max and what his version of Drive would have been (Marshall was originally attached to that project back in 2008).

Tales of Halloween sees release October 16, 2015.

Recommended Release: The Descent
