Wow. I didn't know I was going to be as excited as I currently am about the upcoming It adaptation. This week was an incredible week to be a fan of Stephen King. On Tuesday, we were treated to a poster and a tease for a record-smashing trailer that ultimately debuted on Wednesday. Between the incredible poster and the trailer, my expectations for this movie are now very high. In this week's episode, I review this past week and break down WHY this trailer is as effective as it is.

Hello, everyone! In this episode, I review the official first poster of The Dark Tower, discuss the passing of Bernie Wrightson and provide an update on the future of the Stephen Kingcast. This was a spur of the moment recording (because I didn't expect the poster to arrive) so I apologize for the lack of microphone and song intro/outro.
In honor of all of the New Englanders snowed in by Nor'easter Stella, I'm re-releasing my review of The Storm of the Century!
Last night, Constant Readers were surprised with an unannounced teaser revealing a collaboration between Stephen King and JJ Abrams about Maine's most famous fictional small town, Castle Rock. In this episode, I break down what was given to us and examine what it might mean for the show itself.
In this week's episode, I do a deep dive analysis exploring the relationship between The Stand and the Dark Tower. Enjoy!
Welcome back, everyone. Due to the political turmoil in the country, I am re-releasing my reviews of The Stand. Here is the third part of my analysis of Stephen King's analysis.
Welcome back, everyone. In this week's episode, due to the current state of our country, I have re-released the second part to my analysis of The Stand.
Welcome back, everyone. Based on recent current events, I thought it was pertinent to re-release my examination of King's The Stand. When I watch millions of women and men gather together to protest intolerance and bigotry, when your neighbors leave their homes to protect your rights while others threaten to take those rights away, I can't help but think of Mother Abigail's message to her people. Remember, at the end of the world, God did not ask His people to go to war with Randall Flagg. He merely asked His people to stand against him. I'm re-releasing my reviews of Stephen King's classic in honor of everyone who is out there making their stand.
And for the record, despite what I say in this episode, I do NOT believe that Fran's baby is the Crimson King!
Welcome back everyone. Due to the passing of Miguel Ferrer, who played Stephen King characters Lloyd Henried and Richard Dees, I am re-releasing my episode of 1997's The Night Flier, an unappreciated movie that everyone should go out and watch tonight in honor of the late, beloved character actor. I have recorded an all-new introduction in which I say good-bye to an actor who will always be remembered by me as the one, the only, Special Agent Albert Rosenfield, whose life philosphy was beautifully stated in a memorable scene in Twin Peaks:
"While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I am a naysayer and hatchetman in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I'll gladly take another because I choose to live my life in the company of Gandhi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method... is love."
Rest in peace, Miguel Ferrer. You will be missed.
Hey, guys! I'm back with a review of 1992's gloriously atrocious masterpiece: Mick Garris' Sleepwalkers!
