Lise and Kevin argue vampires versus zombies in the classic I Am Legend, written by Richard Matheson and published in 1954, then made into a long list of films, including the 2007 I Am Legend directed by Francis Lawrence and written by Mark Protosevich and Akiva Goldsman.
Lise and Kevin talk about two very different things: the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep written by Philip K. Dick and published in 1968, and Blade Runner, the 1982 film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Hampton Fancher and David Webb Peoples.
Lise and special guest Mike Marino talk about Stephen King’s story “The Body,” written in 1982 and made into the iconic 1986 film Stand By Me, written by Bruce A. Evans and Raynold Gideon, and directed by Rob Reiner.
Lise and Kevin explore the dark surreality of Jim Thompson’s story “This World, Then the Fireworks,” published posthumously in 1988 in Fireworks: The Lost Writings of Jim Thompson and the film, released in 1997, written by Larry Gross and directed by Michael Oblowitz.
Lise and Kevin gush over the wonder that is “The Girl With All the Gifts,” written by M. R. Carey and published in 2014, written concurrently with the screenplay for the film directed by Colm McCarthy and released in 2016.
Lise and Kevin take on the horror classic “Rosemary’s Baby” written in 1967 by Ira Levin and adapted for the screen in 1968 by Roman Polanski, who wrote and directed. Both Lise and Kevin highly recommend that you NEVER watch the sequel “Whatever Happened to Rosemary’s Baby,” which is horrific for completely different reasons.
Lise and Kevin take on the horror classic “The Exorcist,” written in 1971 by William Peter Blatty, adapted for the screen in 1973 by the author, and directed by William Friedkin. SPOILER ALERT: At the very end of the movie, Regan reaches into the pocket of her pajamas and finds Pazuzu’s petals.
