Don’t Read The Latin! Episode 92: Screamplays Based On Books!

0 Comments | This entry was posted on Mar 25 2019

With a punny title like that, I feel like the opening here should be, “Hello, kiddies, welcome to another episode of Tales From The Crypt Don’t Read The Latin!”

This time, Jennifer Lovely and Rhias Hall are joined by Jillian Venters of Gothic Charm School to talk about their favorite books turned into movies. Spoiler: A fair number of them are vampire ones for some reason *cough*Jillian*cough*

And check out Rhias’ and Jillian’s podcast The Night Library for more book-related content!

(Note: the pun in the title wasn’t me, for once. It was Rhias.)

Hey, Don’t Read the Latin listeners, it’s time for another episode, and this one’s done in black and white. Maybe some grays and sepia, too.

This week’s co-host is returning favorite Rhias Hall of The Villain Edit, and she and Jennifer drink habanero cider and talk classic colorless cinema they love. Enjoy!

“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!
