Saturday Frights Podcast Ep. 65 (Halloween Special IV)

What can you expect from the Saturday Frights Halloween Special IV? How about a visit to the Haunted Drive-In for a movie marathon? Furthermore, the Projectionist and myself are joined by a host of friends this time. All gathered to discuss that maestro of horror, Stephen King! We cover the likes of his books, film adaptations and even TV miniseries. Of course since we are at the Haunted Drive-In, you can expect plenty of surprises and vintage audio treats.

For the Halloween Special IV, we are joined by I See Robots, Allison L. Venezio, Ashley Thomas aka The Nerdy Blogger, Rockford Jay, Gino Vega, and of course the Retroist. I ask you, what better time to discuss Stephen King than on Halloween?

As for what we cover on the Saturday Frights Podcast Halloween Special IV. It ranges from Cujo to the The Running Man.Pet Sematary and The Ramones – up to the author’s influence on the hit series Stranger Things. I think we have certainly thrown a wide net on King’s work. However I feel there is one movie in particular that managed to plant seeds of fear with more than one of us.

“What Retroist Means to Me…” By Allison Venezio

In salute to the ongoing and unending appreciation for Retroist by the people that are the heart and soul of the site, I (among others) was asked to tell the world (preach from the rooftops, if you will!) what Retroist means to me. Give me eleven minutes, and I’ll be happy to tell you why!

Not exactly short, sweet, and to the point, but it is important to remind our readers and contributors about why we do this.

As we move into 2017, I’d love to continue to give unending thanks for the opportunity that has challenged me, made me excited to write, and given me a huge source of pride and contributed to the happiness I was able to find within myself.

And if my response wasn’t short, this one is:

Allison has been contributing to Retroist since July 2015, and has published a new article almost weekly since then. She has bragger’s rights to a large collection of retro commercials, plus she has a knack for finding the obscure nostalgia we may have forgotten…or never knew about. If you like everything you’ve seen here (check out her Retroist writer’s profile), she has her own blog, Allison’s Written Words. You can follow her blog on Facebook, and her on Twitter @AllisonGeeksOut.

Please express your appreciation for Retroist (and what it means to you) with #ThankYouRetroist. She is huge on solidarity, and feels this is a great step in that direction. She’ll see you in 2017!
