CAST INTERVIEW: Get Spooky with Nightbooks from Netflix

Nightbooks pushes the envelope when it comes to a kid’s film. It is sure to make the whole family jump. I sat down with the cast, Krysten Ritter, Winslow Fegley, and Lidya Jewett, to discuss what it was like filming and if they love scary movies.

Interview with Winslow Fegley and Lidya Jewett

Winslow Fegley plays Alex in Nightbooks and he is a lot like his character because he loves scary movies and scary friends, including Lidya Jewett during filming. Watch the interview below to hear about how much fun they had on set.

Netflix is bringing the scray stories to life just in time for Halloween. Just a warning, this one has some big scares and intense moments, so it might not be appropriate for younger viewers. It looks like a fun fantasy movie though!

Alex (Winslow Fegley) is a creative boy with a strong passion for writing scary stories. But when he’s labeled weird and rejected for what he likes, he swears he’ll never write again. That’s when an evil witch (Krysten Ritter), captures him in her magical apartment in New York City and demands that he tell her a new tale every night if he wants to stay alive. Trapped inside with Lenore, the witch’s spiteful cat watching his every move, Alex meets Yasmin (Lidya Jewett), another young prisoner who has learned how to survive the witch’s wicked whims. With Yasmin’s help, Alex must learn to embrace what makes him unique — his love for scary stories — and rewrite his own destiny to break them free.
