7 creepiest horror movie kids: The Exorcist, The Sixth Sense

5 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Aussie horror The Babadook, which is currently in UK cinemas and reaches the Us next week, is one of the scariest films of the year. Like a lot of the best fear-flicks, much of its ability to terrify comes down to one truly creepy kid.

In director Jennifer Kent's harrowing debut, six-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) discovers a book called Mister Babadook, which just so happens to coincide with creepy occurrences at home that his mother (Essie Davis) blames on Samuel's overactive imagination. If we reveal any more, we'll ruin the film's surprises, but suffice to say that Samuel's behaviour is every bit as unnerving as the monster that could be lurking in his house.

He's not the only movie kid putting us off parenthood for life. Also responsible for giving Digital Spy a severe case of paedophobia (or fear of children) are these terrifying tots...

Stephen King Just Went Off About How Much He Hates The Shining Again

4 November 2014 9:01 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There has been some real garbage movies made from Stephen King books. (Dreamcatcher and Sleepwalkers come to mind.) But no matter how many years pass, the author behind Carrie, Christine and Pet Cemetery still loathes the best-regarded horror movie based on his works. King still can't stand Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Recently, Stephen King sat down with Rolling Stone. When the topic turned to the 1980 classic, King made his hatred for Kubrick's Shining clear, saying: "The book is hot, and the movie is cold; the book ends in fire, and the movie in ice. In the book, there's an actual arc where you see this guy, Jack Torrance, trying to be good, and little by little he moves over to this place where he's crazy. And as far as I was concerned, when I saw the movie, Jack was crazy from the first scene. I had to keep my »

'The Dark Half' Blu-ray Review

31 October 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back in 2007 I posted my list of the top ten Stephen King adaptations. It's always funny to revisit such lists because there will always be one or two placements that have me scratching my head. In this case it would be the placement of 1408 (still a good adaptation mind you) over both The Shining and The Green Mile. However, the placing of George A. Romero's The Dark Half at #3 would still remain, an opinion again solidified after revisiting the 1993 Jekyll and Hyde thriller on Shout Factory's new Blu-ray release. It's always been easier for filmmakers to adapt King's less fantastical stories to the big screen, films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Misery and even The Green Mile, which is definitely fantastical, but not to the extent of so many other King stories. However, when it comes to the weirder stories, it's not just the narratives that have that particular »

Mondo to Release Goldenthal’s Pet Sematary Score on Vinyl

29 October 2014 5:54 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Justin Ishmael of Mondo released an awesome tease via his Instagram yesterday. I suspect we'll see an official "announcement" later today or tomorrow (Thursday). He posted a picture of the package art you see here of a Pet Sematary vinyl that will be available to order on Friday. That's right, Elliot Goldenthal's score is being released. And that artwork is magnificent. Would love to get that on my wall.

With Halloween around the corner, we're counting down the days by posting five fun facts about our favorite fright flicks. Today's feature film is "Pet Sematary" (1989). 1. Stephen King came up with the idea when his daughters' cat, Smuckey, was hit and killed on the highway outside their house.2. The film was actor Miko Hughes' (above) film debut. He was only two years old during production and would later star in "Wes Craven's New Nightmare," "Kindergarten Cop" and appear on "Full House." See Miko now, at age 28, in the gallery above!3. Ellie Creed was played by two twin actress, Blaze Berdahl and Beau Berdahl. Blaze was mainly credited for the role, while Beau was credited as 'Ellie Creed II.'

13 Fun Facts about Stephen King's Pet Sematary

22 October 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Stephen King's Pet Sematary scared the living shit out of me when I was a kid. It gave me nightmares for months! I couldn't even get to sleep at times because I would imagine Zelda, one of the creepy-ass characters in the film, crouched in the shadows of the corner of my bedroom. Regardless of those terrifying memories of the movie, I still watch it every year during Halloween to remind myself of that fear. Why? Maybe because I'm a little twisted, and even though it scared me to death, I enjoyed the adrenaline rush of it. Here are thirteen fun facts that I came across for the film that I wanted to share.

King once said that this is the only novel he wrote that really scared him.The role of the terrifying character Zelda, who was Rachael's dying sister, was played by a man. The director, Mary Lambert, »

13 Creepy and Killer Kids

13 October 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Halloween is coming and we thought with all those kids that are out trick or treating, dressing up to be grown ups, that we would give these halfstacks their due, children can be creepy as well. The staff has got together and compiled thirteen films where children are to be feared.

The Children From The Children

Tom Shankland’s film shares themes in common with a couple other “youth gone mad” films of the past, but these kids are terrifying in their own way.  A virus of some sort is turning the children into blodthirsty, malevolent creatures.  They still look sweet, but they’re ready to kill, kill, kill.  The scary imps in Cronenberg’s The Brood are spooky, but nothing freaks me out more than a normal looking child becoming violent.  Kids toys become tools of murder here, and a parent’s worst nightmare is born.  This well directed »

Watching Stephen King and Joe Hill’s New Movies Back-to-Back

9 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I was dimly aware, as a fan of both Stephen King and Joe Hill, that movies based on King's A Good Marriage and Hill's Horns were on the way. But Uncle Stevie totally took me by surprise with this tweet from last Friday: "My son's film, Horns, is Also available via VOD today. Father and son movies! How Cool Is That???" Horns is the first film made from a work by Joe Hill, based on his 2010 sophomore novel. A Good Marriage is from the same year, with Stephen King adapting his own novella, found in the collection Full Dark, No Stars, for the screen, something he's done rarely and not recently. (The last King feature screenplay appears to have been Pet Sematary, 25 years ago.) I watched both films back-to-back. Here's how they stack up alongside one another.Stand-alone Entertainment ValueHorns starts out like a realist film about a guy »

Stephen King’s A Good Marriage | Review

3 October 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Golden Years: Askin Adapts Stephen King’s Domestic Dilemma

For those hoping for resurgence in the quality of Stephen King stock, the unique promise of A Good Marriage is not the ticket. Sporting King’s first adapted screenplay of his own work since 1989’s Pet Sematary, his customary flourishes are stamped all over it, including the predilection for the perspective of the underdog and plenty of trawling around in the private headspace of the favored character, which inevitably leads to moments of exaggerated artificiality. True, King has (or had) a unique flair for creating intriguing and sometimes empowered female protagonists, but the suburban housewife anchoring the lukewarm scenario here isn’t nearly as well-honed as the film necessitates.

Married for twenty five years, Darcy (Joan Allen) and Bob (Anthony Lapaglia) seem to have found the secret to success. Celebrating with friends and associates, including their daughter, Petra (Kristen Connolly »

'A Good Marriage' (2014) Movie Review

2 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There was a moment during A Good Marriage, adapted by Stephen King from his own novella and directed by Peter Askin (Company Man), where I thought to myself, you know, I'm kind of digging this. In the aforementioned scene, gas station lights and a restaurant sign in the background provide a cool ambience as an unidentified woman walks out to her car, the screen fading in from black to reveal a noirish gray color palette. A dull, eerie piano score kicks in as the woman gets into her car and drives away, unknowingly tailed by another vehicle from which the action is captured. Unfortunately this is the opening shot of the film, and it is followed shortly by a cliched opening monologue, a generic party sequence, an uncomfortable sex scene, and some seriously hokey dialogue. I'm not sure either King or Askin had terribly lofty ambitions for the film anyway, »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Hulu Announces Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Series Order

23 September 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Hulu‘s original content doesn’t get the attention it deserves, but things may change soon as Stephen King and J.J. Abrams join the mix. They’ve announced a series order for the nine-episode event based on King’s 11/22/63. The alt-history novel that surrounds the Kennedy assassination is not only a great story, and one that King himself believes fits the format, it will be an interesting series that may open some doors.

There are a lot of alt-history works that I’d like to see, whether as series or films, and something has to sell the genre to the money people. Plus, Hulu has several fantastic shows, and you don’t hear enough about them. Maybe something that has a lot of roads to attention will pull in a big range of new potential Hulu fans, who will then check out more content.

Series Based on Stephen King’s 11/22/63 Picked Up by Hulu

22 September 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like far-reaching ripples made by a stone plopped in a still pond, three shots in Dallas changed the course of America’s history on November 22nd, 1963. The assassination of President Kennedy has been debated and analyzed for decades, but in Stephen King’s novel, 11/22/63, one man has the chance to erase it from history in a time-bending journey that’s now being adapted into a new series for Hulu.

An upcoming Hulu original series, the adaptation of 11/22/63 will be executive produced by Stephen King, J. J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, and Bridget Carpenter (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood), who will also script the project. J. J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television are backing the adaptation, which is being developed as a nine-hour event series. We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. In the meantime, we have the official press release with full details (via TV by »

Stephen King’S A Good Marriage Coming To Theaters & VOD October 3

15 September 2014 7:16 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Here’s a look at the trailer for Stephen King’S A Good Marriage.

When her husband (Anthony Lapaglia) of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson (Joan Allen) looks for batteries in the garage. Instead she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.

The film, directed by Peter Askin and starring Joan Allen, Anthony Lapaglia Kristen Connolly, and Stephen Lang, is written by Stephen King and based off his short story “A Good Marriage” from the collection “Full Dark, No Stars”.

A bit of trivia on the movie - this is the first feature film screenplay Stephen King has adapted from one of his works in 25 years (last one: “Pet Sematary” in 1989), and only the 4th one overall (the other two feature films: “Cat’s Eye” in »

What Is the Best Horror-Movie Title of All Time?

28 August 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

What makes a good title for a horror movie? Hollywood doesn't seem to know these days, as evidenced by names like Oculus and too many nouns ending in "ing" (The Awakening; The Conjuring) or adjectives that are rather tame sounding, like Sinister and Insidious. This week's new release As Above, So Below is either a good title or a bad one, depending on whom you ask, but I'd say its only real problem is that it doesn't immediately sound like a horror movie. That doesn't mean it's not worth seeing, just maybe that it won't as easily draw audiences as, say, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That's a title that tells you what you're in for. Other titles that you know are going to be scary movies include Pet Sematary, A Nightmare on Elm...

I Have Never Seen Stephen King’s ‘It’

20 August 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Quick catch up if you missed the first installment of this series: I’m a guy who missed a lot of generation-defining movies from my youth (though I did not, as many readers apparently suspect, intentionally not watch them as some sort of devious scheme). Now I’m watching them as a 30-year-old in 2014 with no nostalgia for them. It doesn’t make my opinion any more or less valid, but hopefully it’s an interesting one. Or that’s the hope, anyway. This week, I watched Stephen King’s It. I’ve read the book, but not seen the movie. I think I might have seen a brief part of the original airing when I was six (I remembered seeing a black dog, and that was indeed in the movie), but my parents probably didn’t want me watching it because I had gotten freaked out by Pet Sematary not long before.

Good day, extinguishers of all things solar.

To take your mind off all that, check out the limited release of Jeff Baena.s zombie comedy Life After Beth, which uses winning performances to bring life to a tonally fluctuating plotline. How is Aubrey Plaza not in everything at this point?
