Anything for Jackson: Julian Richings on Horror Twist of Parents' Love

Julian Richings always plays to his strengths as a venerable character actor. He is cognizant the way he looks makes him perfect, so certain roles, including his latest horror film for RLJE Films Anything for Jackson. The film follows an elderly couple who kidnaps a pregnant woman (Konstantina Mantelos) in hopes of performing a reverse exorcism of their dead grandson into her womb. The star plays Henry, who, along with his wife Audrey (Sheila McCarthy), are Satanic practitioners of the dark arts. I spoke to the actor about his chemistry with McCarthy, the efficiency with director Justin Dyck and writer Keith Cooper on set, and the urgency of filming due to the looming pandemic.

Spare Parts Star Julian Richings: Living in the Mad Max-Inspired World

Character actor Julian Richings is a man of all seasons, always ready to answer the call on film or television, whether if it's a tentpole franchise with DC, Marvel, a long-running series like the CW's Supernatural, or an indie film like RLJE Films' Spare Parts. With work spanning five decades, Richings isn't slowing down any time soon. I spoke to the star about his latest film, director Andrew Thomas Hunt, and filming at a freezing junkyard during the Canadian winter. The film follows an all-girl punk band who are kidnapped, maimed, and forced into gladiatorial combat with their replaced limbs to the joy of a sadist and his followers.

Genre veteran Julian Richings stars in “SPARE PARTS,” out this summer; trailer & poster

The star of WRONG TURN, ANYTHING FOR JACKSON et al. is now customizing victims in violent ways. RLJE Films will bring SPARE PARTS to VOD/digital platforms, Blu-ray and DVD June 1. Directed by Andrew Thomas Hunt from a script by David Murdoch and Svet Rouskov, it also stars Michelle Argyris, Emily Alatalo, Kiriana Stanton and Chelsea Muirhead. The synopsis: “SPARE PARTS is set in a godforsaken bar in the middle of nowhere where an all-girl band–Ms. 45–rips the stage apart with their punk spirit. But their performance impresses an enthusiastic fan who lures the girls into a trap, sedates them, and starts…customizing them. Slowly they begin to gain consciousness and, in total shock, realize their arms have all been replaced with axes and chainsaws to fight gladiator-style in a junkyard arena owned by a sadistic ‘emperor,’ forcing them into the battle of their lives with one prize in mind–their freedom.”
