Welcome to my new bi-monthly show! Running alongside Watching Robocop, this show will invite creative types - authors, bloggers, podcasters, film makers, and more - to talk about Stephen King's IT, and the two cinematic adaptations of the book.

And for the debut episode, I am delighted to welcome back to the show George Lea. George is a superb horror author, blogger, cultural critic and thinker, and has previously guested on the show to watch both Robocop and Hellbound: Hellraiser II. In a free-flowing, conversational show, highlights include;

 

  • Is IT the real monster? Or would that be Derry?
  • Why large sections of the book are unfilmable
  • Issues with 2017's movie portrayal of Bev (even though the movie was good)
  • The awful humanity of King's human monsters
  • Nihilism and the nature of God
  • George's favourite Loser

 

And so much more. Enjoy.

George's Youtube channel is here, and his blog is here.

In this episode of the show, I'm delighted to be joined by author Laura Mauro, rising star of the UK horror scene, as we watch together the Greatest Movie Ever Made. It's a freewheeling conversation, taking in, amongst many other things:

  • The Metal Gear Solid connection
  • Why stop frame is awesome (again)
  • What you remember about a film a decade on - and what you don't
  • Villainy and subtext

...and so much more! Enjoy, and thanks as ever for listening.

Why Robocop is the greatest movie ever made.

If you'd like more BONUS episodes, once my Patreon reaches $20 a month, I will continue recording extra episodes on a bi-monthly basis, where I watch something other than RoboCop - specifically, where I talk about Stephen King's IT. Backers get early access to both this show and my written work. For more details, check out my Patreon here:
