Stephen King Bonus Ep

"Needful Things”

 

Let’s hear it for another Stephen King bonus ep! SK superfans Margo D. and Deana of the Twisted Philly are back and wanting to talk some more about the character of Sheriff Alan Pangborn after recapping Hulu’s Castle Rock.”

So we dusted off our first editions, listened to the King-narrated audiobook (25+hours!) and dove right into “Needful Things”--both the 1991 novel and the 1993 movie directed by Fraser Heston.

In true “Book vs Movie’ fashion--we discuss the differences between the two versions and decide which one we like better. (Oh, and Margo’s “Alexa” makes a brief appearance.)

You can listen to this episode using the link below.

In this special Stephen King bonus episode Margo & Deana discuss:

  • The fact that this is Stephen King’s first novel after conquering alcohol and drug addiction
  • The world of Castle Rock and where it appears in the Stephen King universe
  • Our favorite characters from the book and those and that are missing in the film adaptation.
  • The stellar cast including Max von Sydow (Leland Gaunt,) Ed Harris (Sherrif Alan Pangborn,) Bonnie Bedelia (Polly Chalmers,) Amanda Plummer (Nettie Cobb,) J.T. Walsh (Danforth Keeton,) and Shane Miller (Brian Rusk.)
