There aren’t many British, queer punk musicals, and even fewer that have tickled the fancy of the legendary b-movie distributor, Troma. However, the company has picked up the unusual and intriguing Spidarlings for release via Troma Now.
The film is ‘the love story of a young lesbian couple, Eden & Matilda, which deals with subjects such as the British Welfare system and gender fluidity.’ However, when you watch the trailer, you’ll also see that it deals with plenty of punk strangeness, tarantulas, an air of experiment camp and an unexpected green tentacle.
Spidarlings features music and songs by Jeff Kristian, who’s best known e as Big Brother’s Singing Drag Queen on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side. Salem Kapsaski directs the movie, which premieres on Troma Now on July 1st. Take a look at the trailer below.
