Castle Rock Historical Society
From its ambitious beginnings as an unofficial companion podcast to the Hulu Original Stephen King series, Castle Rock, CRHS has grown into a hilarious, King-orbiting-but-frequently-divergent, horror genre podcast.
CRHS: The Shining
We're back and starting out with a big swing!  We talk about the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film The Shining.  King didn't like it, we all know that, but hopefully we reveal a couple things you didn't know. We had a great time talking about it and if you have questions or comments, hit us up at Oh and here is the link we promised in the episode. Go read the journals!  Journal Repository | THE HORROR SCHOLAR JOURNAL (

CRHS Talks Malignant
We had to watch Malignant and talk about it because the movie seemed to be so divisive. So we watched it and we talked about it and it was great to talk about an actual movie again. TV is good but sometimes you wanna just watch something for two hours and be done with it.  So join us as we discuss the movie that split people right down the middle!

CRHS: Lisey’s Story – Episode 1
The Castle Rock Historical Society is back and we are excited to be covering Apple TV’s Lisey’s Story.  The first episode lays out a lot of track and we are excited to follow it.  And since neither of us read the book, we get to judge it as a show instead of an adaptation.  So […]

The Tommyknockers
This week Hannah and Acadia review The 1993 miniseries adaptation of The Tommyknockers and it goes pretty much like you would expect. But Meep Morp aliens and the most evil mailman in the history of the Post Office cannot derail the Castle Rock Historical Society from completing their appointed rounds.  And, as a bonus, we […]
