A Stephen King Podcast For Stephen King Obsessives

    The End of the Whole Mess with Paul G. Tremblay

    The End of the Whole Mess with Paul G. Tremblay

    Author Paul G. Tremblay comes back to The Kingcast just as his book, The Cabin At The End of The World, is being adapted by M. Night Shyamalan into the major motion picture Knock At The Cabin to discuss a semi-related short story by Stephen King. Both stories deal with End-Of-The-World scenarios and Tremblay is here to discuss the story, King's authorly instincts in executing the story, and even proposes that maybe the extinction of mankind portrayed in this story ain't a half bad way to go out. You'll also get a healthy examination of King's short work versus his novel-length work, where he's tiptoed around Lovecraft and why we demand he do more cosmic horror.

    Cujo with Joe Cornish

    Cujo with Joe Cornish

    Writer/Director Joe Cornish (Attack the Block, The Kid Who Would Be King, The Adventures of Tintin, Lockwood & Co.) joins Wampler and Vespe to take a bite out of Cujo, particularly how slept on the movie adaptation is. Along the way, the conversation turns toward his newest project, a fun Netflix series called Lockwood & Co, an update on his Attack the Block sequel, the differences between Cujo: The Book and Cujo: The Movie, and just what a not-so-serious current adaptation of this material could look like. Hint: it involves mauling a de-aged Jacob Tremblay and Clifford the Big Red Dog.

    Pet Sematary 2 with Roxanne Benjamin

    Pet Sematary 2 with Roxanne Benjamin

    Director Roxanne Benjamin joins Wampler and Vespe to talk a little about her new movie, There's Something Wrong With The Children, and to dive into this absolutely bonkers sequel. Is this one of those so crazy it has to be genius kind of movies or a complete whiff? You may be surprised at what the hosts and guest think. Conversation covers Clancy Brown's wild turn as the abusive undead stepdad, why Stephen King took his name off the movie, Roxanne's deep, personal connection to King's books, and all three of us trying to figure out just who the main character is supposed to be. No brain, no pain!

    Word Processor of the Gods with Aaron Stewart-Ahn

    Word Processor of the Gods with Aaron Stewart-Ahn

    Aaron Stewart-Ahn is the screenwriter of the bonkers revenge flick Mandy and The Viewing segment from Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities and now he joins Wampler and Vespe to talk about Word Processor of the Gods, how this short story underlines King's influence on future writers, what was up with all of King's work involving the protagonist hating his family, and just what he would do with the power to write anything he could think of into existence.

    Cycle of the Werewolf with Akela Cooper

    Cycle of the Werewolf with Akela Cooper

    M3GAN and Malignant screenwriter Akela Cooper returns to The Kingcast to take a deep dive into Cycle of the Werewolf and its often and unfairly maligned 1985 movie adaptation. Up for discussion: what makes a good creature feature? Why are those werewolf movies where the werewolf just ends up being a dog so disappointing? How important are Uncle Red types to childhood development? What bug crawled up Roger Ebert's ass? Why didn't Reverend Lowe just yeet Marty off that bridge? Y'know, important stuff like that.

    The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass with Matt Fraction

    The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass with Matt Fraction

    Matt Fraction, the renowned Eisner Award-winning comic book author responsible for classic runs in Hawkeye, The Invincible Iron Man, and Uncanny X-Men returns to The Kingcast to continue his journey along the path of the beam.

    He has not read The Dark Tower series and has been going through, book by book, and reporting back on his thoughts, feelings, and predictions as he moves along. There will be spoiler talk about Wizard and Glass and everything that came before, but we will be leaving the later books along (mostly). So, pull up a chair and hear a great storyteller wax poetic about this bizarre fantasy series as he falls deeper and deeper in love with it.

The Best

As a lifelong King fan and movie fan, this podcast is a gift. Every episode entertains the heck out of me and takes me places I never would have thought of in regards to King material, both in his books and movies. Both Scott and Eric are awesome. Knowlegable, hilarious and just really cool dudes. They get the best guests too, with their conversations opening me to numerous movies that I probably never would have discovered. Like King, I hope this podcast has a loooooong run.
