Though we gotta say goodbye for the Summer (of Stephen), we wrap it up with the novella, APT PUPIL, and the film adaptation.
Summer of Stephen continues as we discuss the novella “Secret Window, Secret Garden” and the 2004 film adaptation, SECRET WINDOW.

Summer is here, and so is our 4th annual “Summer of Stephen,” where we review a Stephen King story and the film adapted from it. Join us as we kick this year into gear with CHRISTINE.
Because it’s a short episode with just Joe and Chris, get it? A quick chat about recent viewings and news items in this one. Enjoy this bite-sized treat!
