Josh & Zak discuss a film by Bryan Singer & short Novella by Stephen King.

Apt Pupil is about Todd Bowden (Brad Renfro) a college student studying the Holocaust who discovers that his neighbor (Ian McKellen) is a death camp criminal hiding out in America. Bowden makes him an offer; tell me what they don't tell us in school and I won't turn you in, and the old man agrees, but then as the revelations begin to affect Todd's health and work, school counsellor Mr. French becomes suspicious. Based on the novella by Stephen King
