This week we shine a spotlight on Stephen King with reviews of Pet Sematary and IT. After the break we have a lot more to talk about, including Get Out, Final Girl, Mulholland Dr., Bates Motel, Point of Terror, The Eyes of My Mother, The Devils, Train to Busan, Incarnate, The Bye Bye Man, and Hostage to the Devil.
I am once again joined by Sometimes Co-Host Mike and Michael from the Awesome 80s Podcast as we’re breaking down our Top 5 Animated Batman Movies! Some claim to have the best list of everyone, some made their list just before we started.
After all that we chat about Wrestlemania 33. Is it really Undertaker’s final match? And the guys give their reactions to the new trailer for Stephen King’s IT.
In usual podcast chaos Sometimes Co-Host Mike and I knock equipment around and my cat seems to ring its bell a lot which I did not noticed while recording. We aim for high quality here!

I’m a huge King nerd. That’s not a secret. I’ve been on record that I just don’t know about this IT remake. Not that I don’t think they could improve on it with a higher budget and less restrictions but the big point of contention with me is Pennywise. I mean how do you even come close to living up to Tim Curry’s performance?
Well we got our fist look at the new trailer and while everything looks good and it has a creepiness to it there is still no real look at the Pennywise performance. We see some flashes of him and such but no dialogue and no real interaction with the characters. But I know I’ll still be there opening weekend as since I’m a constant reader I have to. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Well, it is still happening. The remake of IT rolls on with its production and now we have a couple of new images of this version of Pennywise. Now, nothing will ever beat Tim Curry’s version, but this one looks like they are going for a more overtly sinister version in his clown form this time around.
I am sure I will see this one when it hits VOD or Blu-Ray, but now I just kind of want to go watch the original again. What are your thoughts on this new killer clown?
