#648: It / Top 5 Stephen King Scares

It Pennywise.jpg

Stephen King’s first book - “Carrie” - came out in 1974. Brian De Palma's film followed two years later. Then came Kubrick's "The Shining" in '80. Since then, there’s hardly been a year without a King adaptation, including two prominent ones this year - THE DARK TOWER and this weekend’s IT, featuring one of King’s most memorable creations: Pennywise the Clown. This week, fresh from a screening, Adam and Josh offer thoughts on IT, and share King-induced childhood traumas with their Top 5 Stephen King Movie Scares. Plus a (sort of) Musical Massacre Theatre and another new Golden Brick nomination - director Kogonada's COLUMBUS.
