Stephen King: Let’s Talk About the King of Horror – Monster Men Ep: 135

0

Hail to the king! On this episode of Monster Men, we discuss the movies and some of the books of Stephen King. While he is an undisputed legend of the genre, and a genius, not all of his films and novels are created equal.

This show, as with many Monster Men episodes, was completely spontaneous, so what you get is an honest, barroom conversation about the highs and lows of the King filmography… in our opinion, of course.

Movies and books discussed include Salem’s Lot, The Mist, Cujo, PerSemetary, It, Firestarter, Misery, Stand By Me, The Tommyknockers, The Night Flyer, Carrie, The Shawshank Redemption, The Shining, The Green Mile, Delores Claiborne, Creepshow, 1408, Children of the Corn, The Dead Zone, Maximum Overdrive, The Shawshank Redemption, Christine and more.

The Ghosts of Poveglia Island

0

Welcome to Poveglia, the most haunted island on Earth! Author J.H. Moncrieff has been there and on this episode of Monster Men, she tells us her stories.

Just off Venice in Italy, Poveglia is known as one of the world’s most haunted places.

Poveglia has a terrifying, plague-infected history complete with a creepy mental hospital, a deranged doctor, the buried remains of hundreds of people and maybe a ghost or two. The island is a legendary haunted location and off limits to the public, but that did not stop our courageous guest. Not only did she make it to the island, but she explored it alone. (Just her and the ghosts.) You will love her stories.

She also shares a few other fascinating stories of her paranormal experiences, which just might have you leaving a light on tonight.

J.H. Moncrieff is a delightful person and an amazing author. You won’t want to miss her books; City of Ghosts, The Girl Who Talks to Ghosts and The Bear Who Wouldn’t Leave.
