It with Guillermo del Toro

Episode 95,   Dec 01, 2021, 09:00 AM

Guillermo del Toro joins Vespe and Wampler for an exciting chat about all things King with a special focus on "It." The discussion jumps back and forth between other King titles, like Carrie and 'Salem's Lot (wait until you hear about del Toro's first read-through of this one), as well as some talk about Lovecraft, specifically about what his future with At the Mountains of Madness might be. Other topics discussed: Why are clowns so damn scary? What other King book is It a sister story to? Which King novel would del Toro like a crack at adapting? Why does King have such a good insight into the mind of children? And so much more!

The Oscar-winning director of The Shape of Water, Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy 1 and 2, The Devil's Backbone and the upcoming Nightmare Alley makes his Kingcast debut to talk about evil clowns and the legacy of one Mr. Stephen King.
