Mr. Harrigan’s Telephone Manager John Lee Hancock Only Donald Sutherland on Mr. Harrigan’s mind [Exclusive Interview]

You have directed many genres and this is your first horror film. Why does the shaft rotate?

Hancock: I didn’t think of it [as] too much revolved around because when I read it, I didn’t think it was a real King thriller. I think of it more like “The Body” or “Stand By Me” or “[The] Shawshank [Redemption]”and I think it’s kind of a coming-of-age mystery. I’m very drawn to stories about characters and coming of age and things like that, so it’s just the themes in there that draw in. I came to it I thought… it’s something I’ve never done before, but it didn’t feel like a complete left turn.It felt very character-driven, and I was really hooked. absorbed in these characters and the various themes that Stephen is illuminating.

John Schwartzman, my DP, and myself have talked a lot about lens selection, and sometimes where to place a camera. I don’t mind the negative space in a frame just to make it feel a little less. Not so much that you say, “That’s a bad shot.” You say, “That’s interesting, hmm.” It just soaks into you a little bit.

It’s a seemingly normal world until she has Satan’s child, yes, but everything about it, the way it’s filmed, is so beautifully done that it’s just a little out of place at times. . A little too low. “Why are we so low?” And it just creates an uncomfortable feeling that we’re trying to emulate.
