'Tis the season for binge-watching stuff I missed, so am just now getting into this. Anyone a fan?
Am 3 episodes in to Season 1, and can already tell this one is a modernized version of The Shining (which is fine because early King was at his creepiest/most psychologically brilliant, and, of course, Jack Nicholson). I have to say, if Season 1 continues along this pace, I'm not sure if I will be able to watch subsequent seasons! This is intense! I have always dug the "implied horror" genre moreso than the overt blood/guts/gore, and so far this show is delivering.
Did you know King absolutely hated Nicholson in that role?
I did not know that....but I find it funny, since Jack was so iconic in it, and his performance (along with Shelly Duvall's) is what made it great and kept it from turning into another shit movie adaptation like all the rest, even though there were changes between book/movie.
I have a feeling I will be watching FreakShow by myself...Mr. Pig HATES clowns.
Erm, which season is this? I have a wee problem with clowns meself. Reading It was quite hard for me, I had to put it down and sleep with the light on for a few days before I could pick it up again. Did that a couple of time actually.
Me too. I'm going to start from the beginning again. I went to put the preview on (to refresh my abysmal memory) and it looks like I watched quite a few, but I swear, I can't remember any of them. Must have been longer than a month when I first started watching because it was off my 'Watch Next' list, of all the shows we've been watching recently.
I've watched through to episode 6 (I think) the part II of Halloween. WTF? The kid is dead isn't he? He was the gunman that he talks about with the dad/psychiatrist and he died in that event, I'm guessing. The only time we see him not in the house is on Halloween, when they meet for lunch. That's why Lange's character wants her daughter to die on the property, so she can get stuck there, like all the others. I'm hoping the next episode with cover Lange and her experience in the house. She said she had 4 kids, and we've only met 2.
Oh and what the hell did the nurse see in Vivian's scan that made her faint?! That child she's carrying is not her husband's but the guy in the black vinyl suit, right?
I've advanced little. Just watched the episode that confirmed my theory of Tate being dead. And now Vivian is eating raw brains and stuff. I've gotta say, the sautéed sweetmeats looked pretty good. Guess I'm hungry.
