"...Script conferences tend to be mundane affairs. They don't generally involve spending the night in a haunted crime scene in rural Iowa, but that's where Owen Egerton, satirical novelist and co-founder of movie mockers Master Pancake Theater, found himself when he signed on to write supernatural drama The Axe Murders of Villisca..."
"...A girl, a guy, a gun, and a kinky-romantic Christmas request results in a maelstrom of grindingly intense, hallucinatory horror – and not a little humor – in Follow, the feature directorial debut of Owen Egerton, whose seemingly infinite array of talents have apparently never heard the word "boundary."..."
