Welcome to our premier episode of DecayMag Segments. These are episodes where we expand our coverage on the latest news in the Horror genre. My Name is Ken Artuz, Founder, and Editor for DecayMag. For our debut episode, we present our Interview with Dr. Adam Rutherford. Dr. Rutherford served as science adviser for the Life. The interview concludes our extended coverage for this upcoming Horror, Science Fiction film. Life opens this week, Friday to be exact in cinemas across the U.S.
Please do stop by DecayMag.com for our review, see the link provided in the details section below. Also provided is the link to our podcasts. Life features a solid cast. Jake Gyllenhaal, David Jordan, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Olga Dihovichnaya, Ariyon Bakare and Hiroyuki Sanada portray the crew aboard the International space station.
The plot follows the crew as they make a historical medical discovery. Yet, the situation becomes dire. The crew aboard the ISS must survive against a predatory intelligent extraterrestrial organism. The Life screenwriters are Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Reese and Wernick do trek on familiar avenues with the man versus unknown concept. Yet, the film seems grounded more into reality than other entries in this genre.
The alien creature featured in Life seems on a theoretical level to be quite possible. Not on a dramatic level of course. The idea of an alien bacteria mutating and threatening our very existence is a thought to ponder.
This week I spoke with Science adviser to the film Life Dr. Adam Rutherford. Dr. Rutherford is a Microbiologist in-Space expert and broadcaster. Dr Rutherford has worked in many films serving as a scientific advisor. His credits include Björk’s Biophilia Live, World War Z, and Ex Machina. In our interview, Dr. Rutherford shares insight on his work on the film Life. He also discusses sciences in general especially extraterrestrial microbes.
