Jung began by discussing his inspiration for writing the story, which he co-penned with Tedi Sarafian. "The Shining played a very important role," Jung said. "I wanted to do a movie from the Pov of Jack Torrance, the character Jack Nicholson played."

He explained, "I felt like no one had done that before, had the main character in the film be the one that’s slowly going mad, and documenting and talking about the process in an almost scientific way as it's happening. I love movies about transformation, especially horror films. David Cronenberg’s The Fly is one of my all-time favorite films."

Anne Rice Unveils the Updated UK Artwork for Prince Lestat

17 hours ago

At the end of July author Anne Rice revealed her UK publisher, Chatto & Windus', artwork for the upcoming Prince Lestat; and it was, to say the least, rather underwhelming. Well, they listened to the fans and have modified it.

Per Anne herself on Facebook: You may remember I recently unveiled the UK cover for Prince Lestat. Many of you liked the handsome young man on the cover but others commented he wasn’t the Lestat you saw when reading my books.

My UK publishers have listened to your responses and designed a beautiful new typographical cover instead, which allows you to keep Lestat in your mind. It will be in a luxurious supermatt finish with my name embossed along with the title And fronds, on the front, spine and back! I think it is gorgeous and powerful.

We agree, Anne. Nice job, Chatto & Windus!

Prep for True Blood's Series Finale with a Sneak Peek of Episode 7.10 - Thank You

Sookie (Anna Paquin) weighs a future with and without Bill (Stephen Moyer).

Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) struggle with their uncomfortable partnership with Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee) while Andy (Chris Bauer) comes upon an unexpected inheritance.
