Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum

Mike Flanagan

Episode Summary

Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep, The Haunting of Hill House) joins us this week and talks about his successful tenure as a horror film director and how he’s able to still scare people despite being personally desensitized to horror. Mike talks about the inside and outside pressures working off of Kubrick’s classic ‘The Shining’ while also getting Stephen King’s blessing to continue his story the way he wanted to in ‘Doctor Sleep.’ We go deep into our opinions on the horror genre as a whole, how Mike is starting to shift the balance between career and family, and how he was able to morph into a gripping horror film director after growing up afraid of everything.
