Horror Movie Podcast Ep. 125: The Horror Movies of Stephen King – Part 2 (1997 – 2017), including The Dark Tower (2017)

HMP Stephen King Horror Part 2

Continuing on through our tour of terror, Horror Movie Podcast Episode 125 is Part 2 of a two-part series about Stephen King Horror Movie Adaptations. Much like our previous episode, in Part 2 we go through a roll call, where we briefly talk about Stephen King horror adaptations from 1997 to 2017. (If you haven’t heard it yet, our previous episode covers from 1976 through 1996.)

Jay of the Dead, Wolfman Josh, Dr. Shock and special guest Gillman Joel Robertson of Universal Monsters Cast and Retro Movie Geek bring you Feature Reviews of “The Night Flier” (1997) and “Secret Window” (2004) and “Riding the Bullet” (2004) and “1408” (2007) and “The Dark Tower” (2017), which doesn’t have a lot of Horror but we discuss it, anyway. Near the end of this show, your HMP hosts also bring you their Top 5 Favorite Stephen King Horror Adaptations. But without a doubt, the two highlights of this episode are Gillman Joel’s passionate rant about the end of “The Mist” (2007) and a great interview with screenwriter Matt Greenberg (“1408,” “Mercy,” “Halloween H2O: 20 Years Later,” et al.).

HMP Stephen King Horror Part 1

You may know him as Richard Bachman. Or you might know him as John Swithen.

(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.
