Joining us for this episode are Rich and Lewis from Cindemic Nerds Podcast. This turns out to be a much more critical look at the movie than was expected.

As you stay in the Overlook (best do it in the Summer and even then stay out of Room 237), you will find out:

  • What Jack Nicholson did to get himself in the mad mood required
  • Who came up with the idea of Danny talking to his finger
  • What the “snow” actually was
  • How the changes to Stephen King’s novel impacted on the Dr Sleep movie sequel.

As we said in the previous show notes, we are bringing new people in to give their view on Stephen King over the course of this series.

So, if you have a favourite Stephen King film or TV series and want to join us to talk about it, please drop us a line at [email protected]. We aren’t recording the next batch until January, so please get in touch, we always love to hear from our listeners.

Stay safe and read King.
