J.J. Abrams, Stephen King and Hulu invite us to take a trip to Castle Rock

According to THR, Castle Rock is being written and executive produced by Sam Shaw (Manhattan) and is said to “weave together characters and themes from those novels that use the Castle Rock location. Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons.”

Castle Rock first appeared in 1979’s The Dead Zone, and has since served as the setting for the likes of Cujo, The Body, The Dark Half and Needful Things, as well as being referenced »

J.J. Abrams and Stephen King are teaming up for a limited series on Hulu.

The surprise announcement came Friday evening, thanks to a mystery image posted on the official Twitter account of Abrams’ company Bad Robot.

Fans of Stephen King, known as Constant Readers, will recognize “Castle Rock” as the setting in many of King’s books, including “Cujo,” “The Dead Zone,” and “The Body.”

The trailer winds a path past many famous locations found in King’s books — like ‘Salems Lot, the Shawshank State Prison, Pennywise (the clown from “It”), the name Annie Wilkes (the crazed uber-fan in “Misery”) and more — before zooming out on a map of Maine.

Blu-ray Review: David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers Collector’s Edition

16 January 2017 1:24 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

When people accuse David Cronenberg’s work of being “cold” or “clinical,” I suspect the movie they’re really talking about is his 1988 psychological thriller, Dead Ringers. It is a movie about surgeons, so of course it’s clinical. It is photographed with special cameras and carefully choreographed movements that require precision. It is a film about two men who share an unspoken bond and who keep all of their emotions under wraps. Of course it feels cold. But it is also a movie in which a woman tears into the flesh connecting conjoined twins with her teeth. There’s no mistaking it for anything but a David Cronenberg movie.

Jeremy Irons plays Beverly and Elliot Mantle, twin gynecologists who run their own highly successful and experimental clinic. Despite their deep connection, the brothers are different: Elliot is suave and confident, while Beverly is shy and frightened. When they meet »
