Meet Sung Kang, Making his Directorial Debut with Shaky Shivers

by Andrew Nguyen

Sung Kang, known for his role as Han Lue in the Fast & Furious franchise and Better Luck Tomorrow, makes his directorial debut with the horror film Shaky Shivers. Prior to the film’s release, Dorkaholics had an opportunity to speak with Sung Kang and discussed the effect of rapidly growing technology on practical effects in the horror genre as well as his take on what watch would represent his journey with the film. Shaky Shivers will only be in theaters for one night only on September 21, purchase your tickets here.

Andrew Nguyen: The movie was so fun and entertaining, and I just want to say the first thing I noticed was the werewolf transformation scene in the movie. It just felt very nostalgic to me because it reminded me of one of the most classic scenes in An American Werewolf in London. And so I don’t know if that might have been an inspiration at all, but I loved seeing that. And I want to know what is your take on the rapid growth of technology and everything as well, will practical effects continue to hold a foundation in the horror genre?

Sung Kang: Well, first to address An American Werewolf in London. I mean, you hit it on the nail. We were definitely giving a homage to Baker’s work and American Werewolf in London. And to segway into your question about technology taking over practical effects, I do feel like this is a craft that is dying. It’s not appreciated anymore. Things are being replaced with CGI and computer graphics.
