MUSE TVCulturally Obsessed’s Breanna Hernandez and David Peralta attended the red carpet premiere of the new film Low Tide at the London West Hollywood. Breanna interviewed the talented writer/director Kevin McMullin as well as some of the incredible cast. She spoke with Keann Johnson (Alita: Battle Angel, The Fosters, Nashville), Alex Neustaedter (The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Colony), and Jaeden Martell (It, It Chapter Two, The Book of Henry) about their respective roles in the film.

Low Tide takes place in summer along the boardwalk of the New Jersey shore. Teenaged Alan (Keean Johnson) and his friends Red (Alex Neustaedter) and Smitty (Daniel Zolghadri) are similar to a ragtag team of bandits. They break into vacation homes and steal valuables which they, in turn, sell to a pawn shop. Alan and his brother Peter (Jaeden Martell) find a bag of gold coins in one of the homes. This sets off a chain of betrayal, mistrust, and violence.
