Metal Life Interview With #Horror Director Tara Subkoff
Tara Subkoff’s directorial debut,#horror, strikes at the root of cyber bullying to expose how quickly things often escalate in the world of teens and social media. Based on actual events, #horror gives an unflinching look into the bullying that is often times carelessly dished out by school mates and how parents themselves can be so wrapped up in social media that they ignore the warning signs of a child that is being bullied or acting out as one. A few weeks ago I had the privilege of taking part in a round table discussion with not only Tara but with #horror star Chloe Sevigny (American Horror Story, Bloodline) to discuss the film and to weigh in on their own experiences with cyber bullying and what more can be done to help those who are not only being bullied, but those who are acting as one.
