Iconic guitarist and film producer Slash (GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) is featured in a recent episode of online series “Adam Green’s Scary Sleepover”. Slash joined Adam for an evening of dinosaurs, horror/music geekery, and an extremely candid discussion about Slash’s biggest real-life fears.
In the spirit of the popular weekly podcast “The Movie Crypt” that Adam Green co-hosts with fellow director Joe Lynch, “Adam Green’s Scary Sleepover” is a shortform online video series that features a different celebrity guest each week joining Green for a childlike slumber party at ArieScope Studios and candidly discussing their work within the genre, what they love about working in horror, and most importantly… what really scares them.
“The concept for this new series was born out of the overwhelming response to ‘The Movie Crypt’ podcast,” said Green. “The podcast is a weekly 2-3-hour-long audio show that gets super in-depth and more often than not very serious as Lynch and I discuss the craft, the business, and the trials and tribulations of the entertainment industry with our various guests.
“My goal with ‘Scary Sleepover’ is to bring the fans even more up close and personal with some of their favorite artists in a much more candid and inherently humorous short format video show.”
While Green serves as “Scary Sleepover”’s creator, executive producer, show-runner, and host, the episodes are directed and edited by Sean Becker, whose directorial work includes Felicia Day’s web phenomenon “The Guild” and many of the episodes in the second season of Green’s sitcom “Holliston”.
“I think that the best aspect of this series isn’t just that its fun or that it captures these artists while they are put into such an inherently innocent and youthful environment to play in, but that everyone who participates are real-life friends of Adam’s and therefore very comfortable with letting their guards down and answering his questions honestly,” says Becker. “No one feels the need to be on or to live up to some sort of tough guy or tough girl persona. An episode may start off with a ton of ball busting or other funny banter but when it gets down to it, everyone has been incredibly honest.”
