“When I saw Gremlins at age 6, I became obsessed with monsters. Then I became obsessed with storytelling and making movies, so the monsters naturally came to my rescue. But I never imagined that a monster could be intangible, like an emotion,” says director Neil McKay. “And then the idea for Trip was born. Could something like depression become a movie villain? What attracted me to making The Trip was that it wasn’t just about making scary stuff. The main story was about grief and depression, as well as the struggle to maintain relationships and maintain hope. As someone who has struggled with this myself, I have found storytelling to be therapeutic. Although the movie is centered around a reclusive alcoholic who isolates himself in his home and there is a character who appears with a face mask, I promise you that this was all written and filmed in 2019, long before we knew about COVID -nineteen. It’s just a coincidence! But I’m glad it can be a topic of conversation. Now more than ever, we need to lean on each other to discuss and address issues of isolation and depression.”
