Review Fix Exclusive Queens World Film Festival Coverage: Inside ‘The Fever And The Fret’

Review Fix chats with “The Fever And The Fret” director Cath Gulick, who lets us know all about the film and what to expect from it at this year’s festival.

Review Fix: What was the inspiration for your film?

Cath Gulick: I wanted to make a fairy tale but those are expensive. I wondered if the descent into madness might be cheaper.

Review Fix: What did you learn about yourself while making?

Gulick: How to control others by fear. Just kidding! Teamwork is everything.

Review Fix: What was the most challenging part of making it?

Gulick: Finding out I did not actually know anything about filmmaking and then having to pretend that I did.

Review Fix: How do you want it to be remembered?

Gulick: A fucked up cult movie for children.

Review Fix: How does it feel to be a part of the festival?

Gulick: Like joining a big crazy family of movie people I didn’t know were already in my backyard.

Review Fix: What’s next?

Gulick: My partner and I are writing a black comedy called “Make Rome Great Again.” Yes, Ancient Rome.

Review Fix: Anything else you’d like to add?

Gulick: My film THE FEVER AND THE FRET is playing March 23 at 8:15 at Museum of the Moving Image – Redstone as part of the “Up Close and Personal” block. For our trailer, tickets, and more information, go to
