Every day throughout the month of October, William "Bibbs" Bibbiani from The B-Movies Podcast and Ryan Turek from Shock Till You Drop are reviewing a different theatrically-released horror movie based on the works of Stephen King. It's Day 8, and so Bibbs and Ryan are setting the internet ablaze with Mark L. Lester's Firestarter, starring David Keith .and Drew Barrymore as psychics on the run from Stephen King's evil government organization, The Shop.

Does Firestarter still hold up as an X-Men meets The Fugitive riff, or does it deserve to spontaneously combust? Bibbs and Ryan take a look on Kings of Horror.

Come back every single day in October as Bibbs and Ryan review another theatrically-released film based on the acclaimed Stephen King's novels, short stories and original screenplays on Kings of Horror! Follow your hosts on Twitter at @WilliamBibbiani@_RyanTurek and @STYDNews.
