The Locust Files podcast

It’s always a privilege to talk about cinema, and never more of a privilege than to speak about it with my incredible friend, Lee Gambin, who knows more about cinema than ANYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD (it’s a bold statement but one that I feel is fairly close to being accurate).

Lee asked me to join him for an episode of his new podcast series for Diabolique MagazineThe Locust Files – where he has already interviewed Craig Martin, Jarret Gahan, Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, Sally Christie, Bryan Norton, Jenni Olson and John Harrison. I step up to talk about THE FLY (of course), as well as my newer projects (SECONDS and BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN), and a whole lot of other nonsense.

As it tends to happen with Lee, the conversation went off in a number of weird and wonderful directions. You can listen to it right here

Hell is for Hyphenates: Roman Polanski

Stepping up for the November 2017 episode of Hell is for Hyphenates was… shall we say… intimidating.

We’d laboured over my selection of the films of Roman Polanski for almost a year and, within that year, Polanski as a contentious topic had only got more contentious and more dangerous with the likes of #metoo gaining momentum.

But we decided to do it anyway. And we decided to debate the concept of separating art from the artist. Can it be done? Should it be done?

What resulted was a full-throttle episode of Hell is for Hyphenates that went for 2.5 hours and, miraculously, Lee Zachariah edited down to a sharp one hour that rockets along at the speed of light, and includes a few contemporary film reviews as well.

I cannot thank Lee and Rochelle Siemienowicz enough for putting their trust in me for what could have been a complete car crash. I feel very proud of the result, and I urge you to listen to Hell is for Hyphenates every month because it is an excellent podcast.
