PODCAST: Popcorn Talk Episode 6 (‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’)

André Øvredal’s film “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” based on the ’80s and ’90s short story collections, transforms the creepy tales we read and chilling artwork (from Stephen Gammell) we absorbed as children onto the movie screen.

The question we had before we watched it was, ‘How do you make a movie out of a children’s book of short stories?’ We were a little skeptical at first, but the imaginative collaboration of  Øvredal and Guillermo del Toro made for an incredible viewing experience. This may just be our highest ranking film on “Popcorn Talk” yet. Listen on to find out why.

“Popcorn Talk” is a 30-minute long podcast dissecting movies both new and old and providing a decent review that will at least help you decide if a movie is worth seeing or not.

In this sixth episode of “Popcorn Talk,” Logan Raschke, a senior journalism major at Eastern Illinois University and Fall 2019 managing editor for The Daily Eastern News, and Analicia “Anali” Haynes, a senior journalism major and senior reporter for the DEN, analyze “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.”
