This month MC crew are celebrating the film adaptations of Stephen King. Stand By Me (1986), Cat's Eye (1985) and The Running Man are the featured films this episode. Also, because this podcast tends to be a real sausagefest most of the time, we're are joined once again by Amanda for a female perspective on Stand By Me. Plus music by Phantom Five, Ben E. King, Poison, The Damned and The Shades.
We're dedicating all of may to blood splattered cinema and where better to start than with the Father of Gore: Hershell Gordon Lewis.
