SXSW is one hell of a festival. I say so, because as a registrant you're treated to every kind of film. You get the huge premieres like KICK-ASS and the small award winners like TINY FURNITURE. However, there's often a surprise screening that's kept a mystery. This year, I was lucky enough to make into the ultra super-secret and completely undisclosed screening. The caveat being that we all knew what we were sitting down to. With Neil Marshall in attendance, we were lucky enough to be at the world premiere of CENTURION.

Marshall is a highly renowned director in the geek community, and is one of the best genre directors working today. His most notable film, 2005's THE DESCENT, was one of the best horror films of the last decade. I was lucky enough to sit down with Marshall, as well as Axelle Carolyn who plays Aeron in the film, to discuss his latest foray into the world of cinema.

If this interview has peaked your interest in the film, as it should, CENTURION will be hitting theaters this August. Appetite still leaving you wanting more? Check out my extremely positive review here.
