TRIBECA INTERVIEW: Scott Haze Discusses Frightening New Horror Film ‘The Seeding’

By George Bate & Josh Bate

Scott Haze interview

Scott Haze has quietly assembled one of the more impressive filmographies in recent years. He broke onto the scene in the 2013 film Child of God, in which he delivered a transformative performance. Haze has continued to impress with dedicated roles in Thank You for Your Service, Only the Brave, and Midnight Special, while also playing a villain in Sony’s Venom. After a recent turn to horror with the underappreciated Antlers in 2021, Haze returns to horror with The Seeding, a new film from writer/director Barnaby Clay that premiered at Tribeca Festival.

The Seeding is Children of the Corn meets 127 Hours meets The Hills Have Eyes. Haze plays a hiker in the California desert, who is lured into a massive pit/canyon by a group of menacing children. Trapped with no hope for escape with a mysterious woman by his side, the man tries to keep a hold of his sanity.

The HoloFiles had the opportunity to speak with Haze about his new film, the preparation it required, its inspiration from horror classics, and more. Check out the interview below:
