Abel Ferrerra’s High on Movie Magic

Crazed. Passionate. Difficult. Psychotic. Dedicated. Nuts.


All those adjectives describe director Abel Ferrera, but none of them explain how he’s survived for so long and continued to helm projects that are personal and unique. Hosts Justin Decloux and Will Sloan may not have all the answers, but they do discuss the man’s first film, the psycho murder romp DRILLER KILLER (1979) and his most critically acclaimed film, the psycho cop romp BAD LIEUTENANT (1992), with a quick chase through the man’s filmography along the way! Did you know he made a black and white vampire film? Or a Christmas film? Or that Will Sloan has met him twice face to face?

For the answer to these, and many other important questions, you must listen to the episode before it’s too late.
