“The house was full of dead bodies, it seemed. It felt like a mechanical cemetery.”
Hey, spooky friends! It's a special, Bradbury birthday edition of book club. Aurelien discusses (and spoils!) her favorite Ray Bradbury short stories: the spacey sadness of "All Summer in a Day" and the visceral horror of "The Veldt". Plus: how it feels when a favorite author might be someone you wouldn't want to talk to at a party.
Listen to Aurelien talk about "The Mummy" (1999) on Film on the Rocks podcast! https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/film-on-the-rocks/id1482638759?i=1000487571880
