HMSG Interview Elyse Willems! "The Vigil" 

We are so excited to have another wonderful guest on the show this week - Elyse Willems a writer, producer, podcaster, performer, and creative based in Los Angeles, California. Born and raised in exotic Toronto, Canada, a snowy wonderland known for molding and churning out funny weirdos, Elyse shines in any situation where she can don a mustache and wig.

Her career in entertainment and games media spans nearly a decade-  during which Elyse has been featured in content across Geek & Sundry, College Humor, Smosh, YouTube, Kinda Funny, GameStop, RocketJump, Buzzfeed, Schmoedown, Comedy Central, IGN, Fine Bros React, Bleeding Cool News, Hyper RPG and more.

In October 2020 Elyse’s first published book, A Night in Halloween House, a nostalgic holiday adventure for young readers, reached #1 in Children’s New Halloween Releases and Children’s Spine-Chilling Horror in Amazon Books.

We discuss the film THE VIGIL (2019) - a Jewish horror film that wrestles with questions of faith and community through the lens of a young man who has recently left his Orthodox community. 

We hope you enjoy this fun conversation!
