INTERVIEW: Brendan Muldowney Discusses the Quantum Mathematical Mythology Behind ‘THE CELLAR’

In the wake of successful, shuddersome screenings at this year’s SXSW Festival and the FrightFest strand at Glasgow Film Festival, Brendan Muldowney’s latest supernatural shocker, The Cellar will receive a day-and-date release this Friday, April 15, streaming exclusively on Shudder in North America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand.

Penned by Muldowney, who adapted the screenplay from his own 2004 short film, “The Ten Steps,” and starring Elisha Cuthbert (“24”, Bandit), Eoin Macken (Till Death, The Hole in the Ground), Abby Fitz, and Dylan Fitzmaurice Brady, the film follows Keira Woods (Cuthbert), whose daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new stately home in the country. Keira soon discovers that an ancient and powerful entity might actually be controlling their home; an entity that she will have to face if she doesn’t want to risk losing her family’s souls forever.

With The Cellar releasing theatrically and on Shudder this April 15th, CinemaChords’ Howard Gorman caught up with Muldowney to discuss blending the supernatural with mythology and quantum mathematics to adapt his original 2004 short film that took on numerous forms over the course of almost two decades to become the film audiences will get to experience from tomorrow.
