This week we have a very special bonus episode for our listeners. Given that we're all trapped in our homes with the shelter in place orders in full effect, we're missing socializing and seeing our friends lovely faces. We had the idea of doing Skype table reads of classic horror movies, but that idea was one-upped by Mike Vanderbilt and Nat Brehmer by settling on reading some of the great unmade horror movie scripts. For our first time out, Jerry brought MAXIMUM KING to the table. It the kinda true, kinda exaggerated, you had to be there story about Stephen King's disastrous attempt at directing Maximum Overdrive. It has everything: cocaine, killer trucks, boozy binges, heavy metal, steamy sex, cocaine, people losing eyeballs on set due to gross negligence, cocaine, Cujo, cute kids, a heart warming reunion and cocaine.
If you like what you heard, and have a couple bucks to spare, please donate to the Rock Island Public House go fund me, where our stage director Mike Vanderbilt tends bar. As we all know, this pandemic has affected hundreds of thousands of servers, waitstaff, kitchen help and bartenders that rely on our patronage to keep them afloat. Any help would be appreciated.
