RTE: Death trip – Paul Duane on his Irish folk horror movie

Filmmaker and occasional RTÉ Culture contributor Paul Duane introduces his hew folk horror movie All You Need Is Death, which hits Irish cinemas this weekend.


So way back in June of 2021, with lockdown still ongoing, I decided to write, direct, produce and self-fund a low-budget horror film, for reasons too complicated to go into in this short piece.

The thing about making a low-budget horror film in the 2020s is that there are too many of them. Even at the bigger budgeted level of the studio franchise horror, there’s too many, and at the lower-budgeted end where self-funded films like my own attempt, All You Need Is Death, the competition is even greater.”
