This Is Rad!

This week Radtober rages on as Kyle and Matthew welcome author and filmmaker Allison Star Locke Nelson to the show to discuss one of the most influential authors in American horror literature, Shirley Jackson. And the gang couldn't have timed it better as Netflix has just released a new adaptation of Jackson's masterpiece The Haunting of Hill House. Both Kyle and Allison are big fans of Ms. Jackson's prose and they get into some nitty gritty about her backstory, writing process, and the elements that make Hill House in particular such an incredible book. They compare the adaptations and talk about what works and what doesn't in the various versions. They also discuss her other work including her short stories like The Lottery. They also go on some pretty sweet tangents about creative process, horror films, and Flimstruck.
