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

THE FLY Book Review: FrightFest

I could not have asked for a better review of THE FLY book from FrightFest Gore in the Store. I don’t know the reviewer, John Upton, personally or professionally – but I need to buy him a drink one day.

Book Review: how THE FLY got its wings

Every author needs to be prepared for a bad review. Luckily for me, I got this one instead. Thank you to Niina Doherty for her kind words (and impeccable taste).

The Projection Booth’s Special Report: THE FLY

What an honour it is to be interviewed by Mike White about THE FLY for inclusion in his incredible The Projection Booth podcast!

For anyone who may be a debutante when it comes to The Projection Booth, Mike does a deep-dive dissection of cinema that, just like my book, looks at one film per episode then examines it with a panel of co-hosts (Mike being the constant). Often, this culminates in podcasts over two hours long – 3.5 hours in the case of this one.

Mike has two of the most insightful voices in today’s cinema commentary landscape, Samm Deighan and Bill Ackerman, as his co-hosts for the Special Report on THE FLY. And I step up separately to be interviewed about my book, as does Stuart Cornfeld who is the producer of THE FLY and a champion of the film.

This is a podcast that never fails to deliver to the discerning film fan. Get into it.

Interview by A Fiend on Film

Dave K (aka. A Fiend on Film) and I met through Twitter some time back where we shared a meeting of the minds due to our a mutual love of cinema and, in particular, the films of David Cronenberg (download his House of Skin fanzine, in which my writing on Cronenberg’s From the Drain short was included). So I was thrilled when he asked to interview me about THE FLY to run on his blog. Here’s how it panned out…

Insect Politics: An Interview about THE FLY

When I started writing my book on THE FLY, Rathan Krueger asked if he could do a preliminary interview with me for Daily Grindhouse. I said yes, and the resulting interview was so much fun, I had no problems agreeing to a follow-up interview with Rathan for DG upon the release of the book.

And here it is…
