Sordid Cinema Podcast #534: ‘Super Dark Times’ and ‘Gerald’s Game’


Coming off of the modest success and positive critical buzz surrounding last year’s Hush and Ouija: Origin Of Evil, writer/director Mike Flanagan decided to re-team with Netflix for a film adaptation of Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game. Of the four big screen, Stephen King adaptations released this year, Gerald’s Game might be the best of the bunch. It’s not an easy sell, however: Not only is King’s book structured in such a way to make it extremely difficult to adapt but much of it takes place inside the mind of the main character. Needless to say, we here at Goomba Stomp are big fans of the movie but the question on everyone’s mind is, do we like it better than Andy Muschietti’a It? We’ll answer this question but before we do we also set aside some time to discuss Super Dark Times, the feature debut of the incredibly talented director Kevin Phillips, whose critically acclaimed short film Too Cool For School had critics raving after it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. Joining us this week is special guest, Brian Marks of L.A. Weekly, The Village Voice and Sordid Cinema.
