Failed Critics Podcast: Stephen King Triple Bill

Hosts Steve Norman and Owen Hughes do not podcast with their microphones; he who podcasts with his microphone has forgotten the face of his father.

They podcast with their friends, Maaya Brooker and Liam, as the each pick their three favourite Stephen King movies for this week’s triple bill episode, in addition to a review of the sci-fi / horror / fantasy author’s latest big screen adaptation, The Dark Tower.

Also on the podcast, Steve is back in the host’s chair for the quiz pitting Owen’s King knowledge against Maaya and Liam’s, before the group chat about the news that vampire horror Nosferatu is getting a remake from Robert Eggers (The Witch). In What We’ve Been Watching, Steve speaks highly of new Netflix Original What Happened to Monday?, Liam plucks out period drama Lady Macbeth from Curzon’s vast array of quietly quality features, and Maaya ignores all advice to take a trip to the cinema to see The Hitman’s Bodyguard.

We’ll be back again next week for a round-up of FrightFest from horror aficionados Andrew Brooker and Mike Shawcross. Why not check out Brooker’s preview piece on the horror film festival whilst you wait…
