  • I feel your I'm a huge fan of your work, and I think one of the things that you specialize in, if if and see if you agree, is you're very good at blending tension with comedy, you have a very good ear for just how to get that mix.

  • It's a very hard thing to Dio, but I've loved that you've done it the way you've done it in all your movies.

  • And now I believe that your that's what you're accomplishing with truth seekers is to try and get a nice blend of it's humor.

  • But it's also do you feel like the stakes Air riel?

  • And there are moments of riel horror.

  • Is that fair?

  • Did you lose me?

  • Or if I lose him?

  • Yeah, absolutely.

  • I mean, good.

  • You froze completely on my end.

  • I think it's this that there are connection.

  • So yeah, it was really funny on my end because it looked like I just asked you the stupidest question you've ever heard because I I asked you this question I thought was pretty decent.

  • And you just stared at me for like, five minutes, and I thought, Wow, I I just diamonds really pissed at me for complimenting his ability to blend comedy with horror and tension.

  • So if you're angry, tell me now.

  • No, I'm I'm glad you think so.

  • I mean, really, it's about not when you with something like horror, you just don't make fun of the horror.

  • You keep the horror intact.

  • It's very easy to send up anything, which is sort of genre based sci fi horror.

  • It's easy to make fun of it because it requires us toe to suspend our disbelief.

  • And if you just fold your arms ago, that's ridiculous.

  • You can spoof it or make fun, but if you just kind of let the comedy happen adjacent to the horror, then you can have your cake and eat it, you know.

  • So that's kind of our philosophy with truth seekers, which is a sort of paranormal investigation comedy.

  • It's next show, Really.

  • Yeah, well, it's one of the things I remember, I rewatched I've watched Hot fuzz several times with my son is massive fan of yours, and we've watched it several times.

  • And and one of the things that I really marvel at is it's so funny and the comedy ISS so well done.

  • But the stakes are high and my heart is racing the whole time because you don't condescend to do the action as comedy.

  • It's really action.

  • Oh, sure, Yeah.

  • Absolutely.

  • Because otherwise it would be it wouldn't work A Well, you know, uh, we love those movies.

  • We wouldn't We weren't seeking to make fun of the American action film.

  • It was an absolute love letter to it.

  • So it would be silly toe, do anything but try and be one of those things, You know?

  • Nick Frost.

  • I know that you guys have been friends forever.

  • And we would watch episodes of The X Files Seasons one and two.

  • As it was then.

  • It's about 95 96.

  • And also on the weekends we go ghost hunting, which was our code, really?

  • For sitting in my run of five and getting blazed in the country so that no one pursues.

  • Okay, so your search for the paranormal you and Nick Frost sitting in a car, uh, doing some kind of recreational drug.

  • Exactly.

  • And the paranormal thing was seeing how many Cheetos we could eat in half an hour, which would be unbelievable amount.
