A.D. Calvo’s SWEET, SWEET LONELY GIRL played earlier this week at FANTASTIC FEST. The ghost story—set in the late ’70’s—has a very Carter-era aesthetic with it’s perfect costuming and set design. SWEET, SWEET LONELY GIRL feels like something that Jess Franco or Jean Rollin would have produced around that time. The film features a sweet and lurid romance between the two leads that’s so compelling that even without the third act ramping up the ghost story would be a terrific film on its own.
Assistant Editor Mike Vanderbilt and DAILY GRINDHOUSE writer Jason Coffman had the pleasure of chatting with Calvo as well as the two leads Quinn Shephard and Erin Wilhelmi about the film’s soundtrack, costuming, and DON’T LOOK IN THE BASEMENT.
