[Interview] Director Sam Walker Talks ‘The Seed’

The new Shudder original sci-fi horror movie The Seed is a wildly fun and gory experience that genre fans are going to love, and we recently talked to writer/director Sam Walker about the origins of his feature film debut, the real life horrors that inspired it, and celebrating Halloween in his native England.

In The Seed, lifelong friends Deidre (Lucy Martin, Vikings), Heather (Sophie Vavasseur, Resident Evil: Apocalypse), and Charlotte (Chelsea Edge, I Hate Suzie) are finally getting some time away together, using the upcoming meteor shower to gather more followers for their social media channels. But what starts out as a girls’ getaway in the Mojave Desert descends into a battle for survival with the arrival of an invasive alien force whose air of mystery soon proves to be alluring and irresistible to them. Before long the situation devolves into a battle to the death, where the stakes have galaxy-wide implications.

The Seed will premiere exclusively on Shudder on Thursday, March 10.
