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 68th episode of Piecing It Together, Josh Bell joins me for the 2nd time in a row, this time for our long awaited episode on Jordan Peele’s Us. After Get Out, the world had been waiting to see what Peele would do next, and with his somewhat convoluted but still crown-pleasing sophomore effort, he didn’t disappoint. Puzzle pieces include The Strangers, Funny Games, Halloween and C.H.U.D.
