  1. Jesus guys, when I settle down with a few beers and listen to a Land of the Creeps episode I don't normally expect to end up almost in tears by the end (unless GregaMortis has been doing more than his fair share of singing again)!

    That "Stand by Me" conversation was incredibly profound and seriously moving. I love that movie and I love the story "The Body": such resonance with anyone who looks back on youth with a mixture of warmth and regret. In fact I've always thought that one of the most underrated elements of Stephen King's craft is his ability to write so vividly and realistically about childhood; The Body, It, Hearts in Atlantis etc. He just captures youth in an amazingly relatable way.

    Anyway, really enjoying this episode. Fantastic stuff.

  2. Great episode, guys. For me personally, my favourite King adaptation is "The Mist". Great film that plays out the depressing but logical conclusion to what King originally wrote. "Salem's Lot" is no doubt my second favourite, followed by "Maximum Overdrive". "MO", while a campy b-movie, is actually very much in-tune with what King's writing was like in that period. The guy was an alcoholic and abusing other substances, and his writing reflected this with a sick sense of humour and an overall nihilism. As sad as it is to say, his lowest period personally was perhaps my favourite period as far as his fiction goes.
