One of the questions on cult film lovers lips over the past few years was when would director Abnor Pastoll makes another feature film after the success that he found with his 2015 release Road Games. Since then he was been involved with a television project and then two short films. Well the wait for his new feature is now over as his new crime thriller A Good Woman Is Hard To Find has its Australian premiere at Fangoria x Monster Fest 2019.

“It all happened about four years ago, about one month before the world premiere of my last movie,” he explains when we first start to talk about he became involved with A Good Woman Is Hard To Find. “I was looking for a writing partner because I had been writing a lot of projects myself and I thought it would be good to have somebody to bounce ideas off and so my producer knew this agent at this company in London so he reached out to him and said I was looking for a writing partner. He sent over five scripts as samples of their work and the first ones were okay but then I got to the fifth one and it was called A Good Woman Is Hard To Findby Ronan Blaney and I was like ‘oohh what’s this? This sounds good already.’ Then I read the script and it blew me away.”

“I think I just really connected with the character of Sarah,” he says when I ask him what about the script it was that blew him away. “She was just a really interesting character to me. When I am reading a script if I can see it so clearly in my head that is a good indication to me that it is something that I really want to make. After I read it I couldn’t stop thinking about it and that was it. I really connected with it and I just really felt that this story of Sarah really needed to be told and I was the one who needed to tell it.”
