Alex Neustaedter Swims The Indie Waters With Riveting Thriller ‘Low Tide’

Low Tide, directed and penned by first-timer Kevin McMullin, is a Jersey Shore set narrative about buried treasure and fractured friendships. Alan (Keean Johnson), Red (Alex Neustaedter), and Smitty (Daniel Zolghadri) are troubled teens who rob homes, and during one of their excursions Alan’s brother Peter (Jaeden Martell) is forced to help them out. When Peter stumbles onto gold coins, greed, secrecy, and betrayal enter the mix.

Alex Neustaedter, who starred in the TV series Colony and last year’s A-X-L, had nothing but praise for McMullin, who remained steady even if the waters were rough.

“He was one of the calmest directors I’ve ever worked with which was very freeing. It really set the tone for the entire shoot. Even though I know that he was dealing with a lot of things, he never revealed it to us,” said Neustaedter. “He was so committed to helping us with our roles but at the same time he wasn’t overbearing. He gave us some space and knew when he needed to come in. He’s just super mature as a director which is really rare from someone’s first film.”

Low Tide is now playing in theaters.
