A few days our own Fernando Esquivel sat down with Michael Biehn to talk about his latest project “The Divide” which opens today in Theaters.
In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers—all tenants of a New York high-rise apartment—escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows himself or herself to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside.
Check out the Exclusive interview below to see what Biehn said about the film and how he came up with idea of his character Mickey.
“The Divide” also stars Lauren German “(Hostel Part 2”) and Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes”) as well as Roasanna Arquette (“Pulp Fiction”) and Courtney B. Vance (“The Hunt for Red October”).
