The Secret Movie Club Team (Connor Lloyd Crews, Edwin Gomez, Daniel Ott, and Craig Hammill) digs into Frank Darabont’s neo-classic, The Shawshank Redemption, starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman and adapted from Stephen King’s novella. King is a massive force in literary horror but he’s explored every genre, and here the Team flips through King’s non-horror work! Edwin is pumped on Schwarzenegger action flick The Running Man. Daniel finds Stand By Me to be his favorite. Craig wants to translate his favorite King books, The Stand and Wizard & Glass, to the screen. Connor pitches several adaptations of his own. Hollywood: he’s available!
