DRtL Episode 42: The Book Was Better!

Posted on May 12 2016 in Episodes

“I’ve never seen the 50’s Vincent Price version . . . or, now that I stop to think about it, I don’t think I’ve seen the 60’s version, either . . . and I’m not sure I saw I Am Legend . . . . “

“Oh, my God — move on!”

Welcome to our only slightly late episode! This time, we’re exploring that strange territory where the silver screen and your local bookstore collide. That’s right, this episode is all about horror movies based on books! Bad movies based on good novels, good movies based on bad novels, and everything in between. Did we miss any of your favorites? Let us know!

Worthy of Note: Hopefully you will notice a big improvement in the sound quality over previous episodes. We’re trying a totally new audio set-up, and we think it sounds a lot better. Let us know what you think of that, too. We’re still experimenting and learning, and after two years of doing this, we’re finally making a little progress! Eventually, we catch on.

Speaking of which, also Worthy of Note — we’ve missed it by just a few days, but May 9th was the second anniversary of our very first episode! I know, we can’t believe it, either! For those who have been with us from the beginning, thank you so much for listening and for your comments and support, and for telling your friends about us. For those of you just joining — welcome! Grab some popcorn and settle in, because we’re not going to stop watching horror movies any time soon. See you in two weeks!

  1. Great ep, guys! I’d suggest adding “The Phantom of the Opera” to the list, because Gaston Leroux’s novel has pockets of weirdness that none of the film adaptations have captured. For example: in the book, while Raoul and the Persian are making their way down to the Phantom’s lair to rescue Christine, they cross paths with the Ratcatcher, a FLOATING FLAMING HEAD ACCOMPANIED BY AN ARMY OF RATS. After which, the Persian is like, “Oh yeah, Erik’s told me about that guy but he never said what he looks like.” AND THEN THIS IS NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN.
