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. 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 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.
