The Book Was Better Podcast Episode 90: Poltergeist (with guest host Courtney Coulson!)

This week we scare the crap out of ourselves by reading James Kahn's novelization of the Hooper/Spielberg attacked-by-a-toy-clown classic: Poltergeist! Luckily I'm joined by the intrepid - and virtually fearless - Courtney Coulson, who still, after all these years, is not afraid of no ghost. This film is a classic pants-pisser and yet, could the book actually be better than the movie? This one is going to shock you, folks!

Follow me under the cut for a re-cap of Day 1 including Jamie Bamber (Battlestar Galactica, Hornblower, Law and Order UK), John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Arrow) and Katie Cassidy (Supernatural, Arrow).
