About This Show
King Me is the unofficial Stephen King movie podcast and the official podcast of Kinging Me. Comedians Rob Avon and Dan Gagliardi are on a quest to try to make sense of every entry in the vast and diverse world of Stephen King movie adaptations. They're watching everything from The Shining to Dreamcatcher, from The Shawshank Redemption to The Lawnmower Man 2, to try to get a beat on Stephen King's work and its pop culture legacy.

No, not THAT The Shining. That was The Shining. This is STEPHEN KING'S The Shining.
Stephen King was famously displeased with Stanley Kubrick's 1980 adaptation of his book about hotels and the souls they devour. Apparently King felt that 17 years was all it took for the public to forget one of the most beloved horror films of all time, and set about EPing a miniseries adaptation of his classic novel. Directed by Mick Garris, and starring Steven Weber and Rebecca de Mornay as Jack and Wendy Torrence, Stephen King's The Shining is a trip into the valley of the uncanny and then the mountain of exposition.
Also in this episode: a very earnest, very prolonged bath hag discussion.
