Top 10 Stephen King Movie Adaptations

24 November 2011 9:19 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Stephen King is undeniably one of the most recognised household names in modern literature. A prolific idea machine, King’s schlocky, pulp-style delivery and liberty-taking use of prose is an instant turn-off for some. But it can’t be denied that many of the concepts that he dreams up are truly touched by greatness.

There are a ridiculous number of varying movie/TV adaptations from throughout the length and breadth of Stephen King’s career; believe me, I counted them. In all, I found evidence that no less than eighty-four various projects (from shorts to feature films and the gamut in-between) have been adapted out of Stephen King’s novelizations and short stories. And chances are you’ve seen a good chunk of them, even if you’re not aware of it.

Of course they’re not all great, not by a long shot. Some of them are downright drivel (the T. »

Top 5 Stephen King Film Adaptations We’d Like to See

18 November 2011 3:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In the 35 years since Carrie came to our screens, Stephen King has become one of the most bankable names in horror and fantasy film. The list of adaptations of his work reads like a who’s-who of filmmaking: Carrie, Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Creepshow, Christine, The Dead Zone, Stand By Me, Pet Semetary, It, Misery, The Shawshank Redemption, The Mist, The Green Mile etc., etc.. It’s hard to think of any other living writer whose work has been so prolifically embraced by filmmakers.

But just as Stephen King has continued to write (despite threatening retirement in 2002), so the public’s appetite for his work remains. While recent adaptations like Secret Window and 1408 have hardly been stellar, there are plenty of other King works which would make for riveting viewing. Here are 5 that we think should be at the top of any film executive’s list for green-lighting.

'Sister Wives': Warren Jeffs' Flds lifestyle discussed

6 November 2011 7:47 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

On the latest "Sister Wives," we get a look into the principle of plural marriage as Kody advises his friend Andy about courting a second wife and the Browns talk about Warren Jeffs, the "prophet" of the Flds.

So some friends from Utah come to visit, Andy and Nicole. They were raised in plural marriage and believe that, but they are monogamous. Interesting. Andy wants to talk to Kody about dating a woman as a married man. Andy and Nicole already have six children and Andy isn't sure he should be going after a young woman with no children.

Andy's take on the Brown family is that they're in a divorce in Las Vegas because they don't all live together in one house. Huh. He also doesn't want to leave one wife home alone when he goes to sleep with the second wife. Huh.

I just have to interject that »

Did You Know: The 1970s Almost Brought Us a 'Spider-Man' Movie Directed by John Carpenter?

1 November 2011 3:40 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

So who else watched John Carpenter's Halloween last night? It's become somewhat of a tradition at Movies.com headquarters to watch the iconic horror movie on Halloween, if only because it makes the whole night just that much spookier. This was also the film that introduced the world to John Carpenter, a director who would later go on to bring us other memorable hits like The Thing, Christine, Big Trouble in Little China, They Live, and more. What you probably didn't know, however, is that Carpenter almost took on a superhero film in the 1970s, admitting to IFC that folks were interested in hearing his thoughts on stories for two superheroes who are enjoying their own big, splashy franchises as we speak. "Well, I've thought about it before," he told...

John Carpenter explains why his "Asylum" comic book is an "irresistible" project

28 October 2011 9:49 PM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

When it comes to the Halloween season, there are few directors whose films get more mileage than John Carpenter.

So, how is the filmmaker responsible for horror classics like "Halloween," "Christine," and "The Thing" celebrating the holiday this year? By attending this weekend's Long Beach Comic and Horror Con and showing off his latest tale of terror, apparently.

IFC caught up with the director ahead of his appearance at this weekend's show to get more info on John Carpenter's Asylum, the upcoming comic book series he helped create with his wife, Sandy King, and actor Thomas Ian Griffith. (You can check out a teaser for the book at digital publishing site Graphicly.)

"It's essentially a horror comic about a conflict that involves the most powerful evil of all, and a plan to open a portal in Los Angeles that would be the beginning of the end for mankind," said Carpenter of the series. »

Scary Monsters 2011, Round 3

27 October 2011 2:14 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Following rounds 1 and 2, this one will take us right on through the countdown to Halloween and will surely be the most actively updated of the bunch. Best to begin, then, by grounding it in a classic, so we turn to David Kalat: "Frankenstein isn't a science fiction story about an arrogant scientist who intrudes on God's domain, it's a metaphor about our relationship to God." That's his argument, and I'll let him explain, but I want to pull back to a couple of earlier sentences in his piece. Mary Shelley's novel, "and the 1910 film version, treated the 'science' of Frankenstein as just so much folderol, a MacGuffin to introduce the artificial man into the story. Whale was so good at providing a reasonably convincing visualization of reviving the dead — no, more than that, a stunningly satisfying visualization of reviving the dead — it focused popular attention on that part of »

Stephen King Reads Excerpt Of 'The Shining' Sequel 'Dr. Sleep'

27 September 2011 6:09 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Many of author Stephen King's novels have been adapted to film: 'Carrie,' 'Christine,' 'Cujo,' 'Salem's Lot,' ''Pet Sematary,' 'Misery,' and dozens more. Perhaps the most famous adaptation of his work is the 1980 film from director Stanley Kubrick, 'The Shining.' Jack Nicholson played Jack Torrance, a man who takes on the job of caretaker at a desolate hotel with his wife and child, Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and Danny. (Danny Lloyd) The hotel is haunted by several spirits, which slowly assist Jack in going absolutely insane. The son does his best to combat his father's insanity by using his telepathic and psychic abilities called the 'Shining.' King is currently writing the sequel to 'The Shining' called 'Dr. Sleep.' Made official by his website, the novel concerns a presumably adult Danny and his dealings with "a traveling group of vampires called The Tribe. »

The James Clayton Column: to drive or not to drive?

15 September 2011 5:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ahead of Drive’s release in cinemas, James takes a leisurely cruise through the history of auto-obsessed movies…

I feel the need - the need to not have to rely on public transport because I can’t drive, and have never seen Top Gun. I just don’t want to hang around on an aircraft carrier with Tom Cruise. Sorry.

One day, no doubt, I will plug that gap in my pop culture knowledge and run around in aviator shades screaming, “How did I live without you, Maverick?!” but right now I have more pressing priorities, like learning to drive. As far as life skills go, that’s more important than total familiarity with every single Jerry Bruckheimer production.

Review: Super Hybrid (Blu-ray)

22 August 2011 11:57 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Sometimes when I’m behind a particularly idiotic driver, I find myself wondering, in between shouted obscenities, if there’s even anyone at the wheel. Of course when I’m asking this, I’m imagining someone clipping their toenails or prattling away on their cell phone.

Obviously, the latest gossip about Jim-Bob is much more important than the two-ton hunk of steel that they’ve put on the road. Imagine, though, what if there wasn’t anyone in that driver’s seat at all. What if. . . the car was driving itself?

Sure, there are already movies with this premise, take Stephen King’s Maximum Overdrive and Christine for example. Sentient cars aren’t a new concept. However, let’s take this notion a bit further: what if that car in front of you isn’t even a car at all?

Super Hybrid and Sparks Under the Hood: A Movie Review

18 August 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Eric Valette.

Writer: Benjamin Carr.

Cast: Oded Fehr, Shannon Beckner and Ryan Kennedy.

Ah, the killer car horror sub-genre. Not since Stephen King's Christine and Maximum Overdrive have murderous cars been so fun. Benjamin Carr and Eric Valette's introduction to this genre puts the killer car film into the creature feature genre and the result is a Super Hybrid. This title releases on DVD August 23rd through Anchor Bay Entertainment and the film stars Oded Fehr (Resident Evil), Shannon Breckner (You are Here) and Ryan Kennedy ("Caprica"). Much like the film's title, Super Hybrid is one part female empowerment film and one part mindless entertainment.

A damaged car is brought back to a Chicago Police Department salvage yard for storage and later investigation. A tyrranical garage manager (Fehr) makes sure everyone is on the job, while he harrasses the cute secretary. Then, actress Breckner arrives as Tilda »
