Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 138: Winter With Stephen King – Part 1: The Shining (1980) and Misery (1990)

HMP138 StephenKing Winter

It’s cold out there, so why not snuggle up with Horror Movie Podcast, Episode 138 and the creepiest cuddliest of horror icons, Stephen King? Back in August we brought you a survey of the films adapted from King’s work with our 2-Part series, The Horror of Stephen King. Earlier in the Summer, we’d sunk our teeth into Cujo during our Man’s Best Fiend – Horror Pets episode. And this past September we spent some quality time with Pennywise the Dancing Clown when we took a look at Creepy Killer Clowns in horror cinema with an “It vs It” episode. Now, we warm the cockles of your icy heart with two classic wintry tales from King films in Part 1 of our 2-Part series, Winter With Stephen King. Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock welcome the host of the Movie Moments Podcast, William Rowan Jr. (aka Kill Bill Kill aka Rowan the Destroyer aka William Solo Jr) to discuss Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980) and Rob Reiner’s Misery (1990). We hope you’ll come in and stay forever and ever and ever.

Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 124: The Horror Movies of Stephen King – Part 1 (1976 – 1996)

HMP Stephen King Horror Part 1

You may know him as Richard Bachman. Or you might know him as John Swithen. But most people know him as horror novelist Stephen King, a master literary chiller who is perhaps the most prolific and influential writer of modern horror fiction. Episode 124 of HORROR MOVIE PODCAST is Part 1 of a two-part series about Stephen King Horror Movie Adaptations.

In Part 1 we briefly discuss horror movies and horror mini series that were adapted from the written works of Stephen King, covering releases from 1976 through 1996. (In our next episode we’ll cover from 1997 through 2017, culminating with our Feature Review of “The Dark Tower.”) But in this show, we bring you four Feature Reviews of Christine (1983) and Graveyard Shift (1990) and Needful Things (1993) and Thinner (1996). Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh and Dr. Shock are joined by special guest Gillman Joel Robertson of Universal Monsters Cast and Retro Movie Geek podcasts. This episode is a must-listen if you’re Dead Serious About Horror Movies… Join us!
