Travis on the Comeback Trail – Episode # 153

Hallo there, Neighbors! Settle in as we discuss what’s going on this week—RHOC was kinda mellow, except we get insight into Kelly’s previous assaults *alleged–and Emily’s ability to block out that toadstool of a husband; RHOD did it up with a lingerie shower for Leanne, by Leanne–at 11am on a Wednesday! Whaaa? Plus Margo’s liking Passenger List; and Erin saw the doc, “Where’s My Roy Cohn?” which explains a LOT about our current state of affairs. Plus, some dish about Madonna’s Madame X show and Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book, CATCH & KILL.

Book Vs Movie: Stephen King’s “Sleepwalkers” & “Sometimes They Come Back” (Replay)

Book Vs. Movie (Replay)

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Special Guest Adam Riske (F This Movie)

Two podcasting, movie geeks talk about two classic Stephen King stories

Sleepwalkers” & “Sometimes They Come Back

In this special “Stephen King” ep, Margo D. and Adam Riske who is a contributor to the excellent movie podcast F This Movie, get together to talk about two rather weird Stephen King productions that they both love for nostalgic reasons. Then we wander off into some unexpected pop-culture tangents– but let’s get into the movies first.

Adam begins with 1992’s Sleepwalkers which stars Brian Krause, Madchen Amick, and Alice Krige. King penned the screenplay based on an unpublished story and it is directed by his pal Mick Garris who also helmed King’s The Stand and the updated The Shining.

What is this movie about? Well, it has a mother and son who are not only creepy supernatural creatures who feed on virgins and then skip town. They are also involved with each other romantically!  Amick plays his love interest and her parents are played by Cindy Pickett and Lyman Ward who played “Ferris Beuler’s” parents (they have since divorced.)

There are all kinds of strangeness with this movie including the herding of cats, a graveyard picnic date scene and an appearance by Mark Hamill! It’s pretty fantastic.

Margo D. chose Sometimes They Come Back which was first featured in King’s collection of short stories Night Shift. The 1991 CBS-TV movie starred Tim Matheson, Brooke Adams and Nicholas Sadler (whom Adam and Margo recall from his famous appearance in a 1990 episode of The Cosby Show.)

Matheson plays Jim Norman, a school teacher who lost his brother to a tragic gang attack and now must face his past as they all somehow show up in his life to raise hell once again.

The original in printed form scared the bejeebus out of a young Margo. The TV adaptation? Not so much but it makes for an amazing discussion with the following topics covered:

  • HBO’s original sex comedy Dream On starring Brian Benben
  • Chanteuse Jane Child and her amazing 90s hit Don’t Wanna Fall in Love
  • Our differing opinions on the upcoming Pet Semetary remake. (Adam is not sure about that one)

Hope you enjoy this different take on our usual Stephen King bonus eps. (Margo breaks out into several giggle fits here.)

What a Creep

Errol Flynn

Season 3, Episode 1

Welcome to the third season of What a Creep talking about old school Hollywood star Errol Flynn and his awful, creepy ways. He was an animal-abusing, lying, thieving, womanizing child rapist who somehow is still beloved by classic movie fans. (It must be the way he held a sword?)

Then, Margo & Sonia talk about a screen legend who was definitely NOT a Creep.

Coraline”

Neil Gaiman’s Classic Novella Vs the Henry Selick Film

What would you do if your mother and father all of a sudden became entirely different (and scary) people? Coraline Jones is a young English girl who moves to an old house that is filled with interesting characters (such as Miss Spink, Miss Forcible and Mr. Bobo,) loving (yet kind of absent) parents and a bricked-up door leading to an adventure which tests the might and ingenuity of our heroine. (Spoiler–we really love this book & movie here!)

Coraline, written by illustrious author Neil Gaiman, was originally published in 2002 though he had been working on it since the 1980s in honor of his daughters Holly & Maddy. In fact, he originally sent to his editor in 1991 who deemed the theme “too scary” for kids. Thankfully, Gaiman kept working on it and the novel was awarded the Hugo Award for Best Novella in 2003. (The graphic novel featuring illustrations by P. Craig Russell is a real treat as well!)

Director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas and James & the Giant Peach) helmed the 2009 film which was nominated as Best Animated Feature at the 2010 Academy Awards. A visual feast for the eyes, the movie Coraline takes the tale to a whole other level.

So which did the Margos like better? Book or Movie? Check out the link below to find out!

Also, we are SO lucky to have Penguin Books sponsor this episode! The Margos are thrilled to be asked to talk about author Ransom Riggs‘ newest “Miss Peregrine’s story”–A Map of Days which you can pre-order now! (It goes on sale October 2, 2018.)

In this ep the Margos discuss :

    • The incredible career of Neil Gaiman who is a master of short fiction, novels, comics, graphic novels, radio and movies (Whew! When does this man rest?)
    • Key changes in the adaptation including setting it in America and the character of “Wybie Lovat.”
    • The various forms of Coraline including the novel, graphic novel, audiobook read by the author and featuring music by The Gothic Archies.
    • The cast of voices including Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, Jennifer Saunders, Dawn French, John Hodgman, and Keith David.

The Stephen King Bonus Ep

With Deana Marie (Twisted Philly)

Pet Sematary (Original & Remake)

It’s time for another Stephen King Bonus ep and Margo D. is joined by Deana Marie of the Twisted Philly podcast to talk about the remake of Pet Sematary directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer (Starry Eyes) and comparing it to the 1989 movie directed by Mary Lambert.

Plus, we delve into the 1983 novel that was inspired by author King’s stay at a residence in Maine for a year that was located by a busy roadway. In real life, his daughter’s cat was run over by a truck and his son was almost struck down by one as well.

King took these events and created the creepy story of the Creed family who moves to Ludlow, Maine to escape the city life. Instead of finding tranquility they discover their home is located near a pet cemetery that has some supernatural powers.

So between the book and two films–what do we think of Pet Semetary? Click on the link below.
