On this week's episode, we take a look at the movie adaptations of arguably the greatest horror author in history, Stephen King. For several decades now, both readers and audiences have been terrified by the works of Stephen King, in all forms of entertainment. As with anything, not all of his adaptations click, and occasionally the results are scarier than the source material. But those that do, have become classic films that have horrified generations.

Because we love King, we left it to our listeners to decide the final eight films with which we'd handle our latest Movie Battle Royale, and the nominees are all great in their own way: Pet Sematary, The Mist, Misery, Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, Stand By Me, IT (2017), The Shining. Which will end up as the greatest Stephen King adaptation of all-time?

Also this week: a news roundup, Amsterdam takes on 5D, a Stephen King iteration of Movie Innuendo, reviews of Pet Sematary and Shazam, and much more.
