On the 99th episode of Piecing It Together, Kris Krainock (our resident Stanley Kubrick expert) joins me for Doctor Sleep, the 40 years later sequel to the classic horror film The Shining. Based on a recent novel from Stephen King, Doctor Sleep and director Mike Flanagan tries to answer questions you probably never had about The Shining and expands the mythology in all kinds of new ways. Puzzle pieces include Ready Player One, It Chapter 1 & 2, The Frighteners and the Twilight series.
On the 45th episode of Piecing It Together, I’m joined by Chad Clinton Freeman for a special kind of episode we’ve never really done before… It’s both a Piecing It Together of 2018’s Halloween, and a Breaking It Apart of 1978’s original Halloween. While coming up with our puzzle pieces for the new one, we realized that all the movies that inspired it, were themselves inspired by the original, so we thought this would make for a fun episode. Puzzle pieces include Scream, Happy Death Day and Mean Girls.
On the 27th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Chad Clinton Freeman and I discuss The Nun, the newest entry in the ever expanding Conjuring Universe. The horrifying character who made her debut in The Conjuring 2 and Annabelle 2 finally gets her own movie, diving deep back into how this evil Nun character got her start and set off the events that would build the Conjuring universe and a world of unspeakable evil… It’s also absolutely ridiculous, hokey and hilarious and a great fun time at the movies! Puzzle pieces include Indiana Jones, Evil Dead, the Universal Classic Monsters and Scooby Doo.
