The Shining with Renny Harlin

Episode 231,   May 15, 08:00 AM

We're just as surprised as you are, but our guest this week is Renny Harlin, the insane director behind A Nightmare On Elm Street 4, Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea, and the upcoming The Strangers Trilogy, Chapter 1 of which debuts in theaters this coming weekend. Renny joins us to talk about how Stephen King impacted him as a creative and how Stanley Kubrick's The Shining is an all-time favorite. Be forewarned: this is a wildly entertaining conversation that bounces between topics every few minutes, so be prepared for some chaos! And a good time. That, too.

The Shining is one of the most hotly debated Stephen King adaptations. Did Kubrick screw up King's book? Is all that talk overblown? It always serves as a good backdrop to a conversation, especially when your guest is as fun to talk to as our guest this week.
