The FrankenPod - A Gothic Literature and Cinema Podcast

Nov 13, 2018

Swears, Spoilers and Kids with Guns

Melissa and Morgan both read Rage. Then we both had a bit of a rage.

What is it about this terrifyingly suburban gothic and thoroughly unrealistic novel that inspires real teenagers to do some very real and horrific acts?

How much of these acts can really be attributed to King's juvenalia?

And what would it take for you to kill your own creation?

We also discuss gun control, cultural violence and King's status as a gothic author.
