“Being on Get Lit with Leza has been my favourite experience on any podcast I have been on to date. Apart from Leza’s great interviewing style it was a great joy to have an equally intellectual and fun discussion about topics as varied as conspiracy theories, censorship, magick and life on other planets.”
CHECK OUT THE SPIDARLINGS MOVIE TRAILER ON TROMA!
I talked to Salem about his recent Troma film Spidarlings, which he wrote and directed. This movie is OUT THERE. It is dark and funny and to top it all, it is a musical. It is sweet and has heart. It is a movie of many layers. It has to be seen to be believed. I saw in this movie the fabulous imagination and twisted sense of humor I had enjoyed for years through conversations with Salem on Facebook, where we first began talking, discussing the merits of The Night Porter. This film makes me very excited to see more from the twisted imaginings of this young director. We talked about movies, The Manson Family, and life in Manchester, England. Join us on this very special episode of Get Lit With Leza!
