Guest Post: A Review of Shudder's CREEPSHOW by Janine Pipe

So by now you will have worked out that I have a thing for horror, and my favourite kind by far, is what I refer to as classic, comic book horror if you will.

Therefore, when we subscribed to Shudder at the start of Lockdown in the UK (thank YOU Shudder for an amaze-balls dealio) and I realised that they had re-imagined Creepshow, my mind was blown.

Friday Feels- April 3rd, 2020

Happy Friday Night Worms! Are you starting to go a little crazy in your isolation? SAME. I tend to like to lean into whatever is going on in the world with what I’m reading. Since I’m practicing social distancing and kind of going nuts, I figured I’d it might be a good time to reread THE SHINING by Stephen King.

start by trying my hand at casting a potential adaptation of King’s most recent novel, THE INSTITUTE. If you haven’t read the novel yet but want to get a quick background on the story, you can check out the side-by-side review of this novel that I did with Sadie right here.

THE INSTITUTE Review by The Horror Hypothesis 

 

“Luke guessed you could get used to anything, it was a horrible idea.” -Stephen King

 

“No one who fully grasped the Institute's work could regard it as monstrous” -Stephen King 

 

Throughout his prolific career as an author, Stephen King has proven that he can deftly handle the horrors of institutionalization (RITA HAYWORTH AND THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) and the complicated social dynamics of children (IT, THE BODY).  In his most recent novel, THE INSTITUTE, he blends...
