The King Zone Podcast Episode 19 – ‘You Guys Wanna Go See A Dead Body?’ A Deep Dive Into Stand By Me (1986), Misery (1990) and Dolores Claiborne (1995)
Welcome to this Podcast series from The Super Network with The King Zone! This podcast series is all about the adaptations of Stephen King, from the cinematic films, mini-series and TV movies!
Join your co-hosts ‘Super’ Marcey and the ‘Terrible Australian’ Bede Jermyn as they welcome back the very first guest we had on The King Zone and good friend Sam Inglis (Growing Pains & 24FPS)! This episode is very special as it covers the favourite film of Super Marcey with Stand By Me (1986). The three films chosen were put together because we get two double headers, the Rob Reiner double and the Kathy Bates double!
