Just in time for spooky season, we go hunting for bodies in King's novella (or is it a novel?), as well as Rob Reiner's seminal 80s film, which boasts an all-star cast of young male actors (RIP River Phoenix)
Up for discussion: the meanness of Castle Rock and the tragic backstories (and future lives) of these protagonists; the purpose of that infamous pie-eating contest; disagreements over the success of John Cusack's Denny and Richard Dreyfuss' narrator, and speculation about switching the year of the text from 1960 (in the novella) to 1959 (in the film).
