The film: Charles Brady (Brian Krause) and his mother, Mary (Alice Krige) are sleepwalkers, which are a sort of werecat vampires who feed on virgin women in order to survive. The only things that threaten them are cats, who show up wherever they go. After draining a girl in Bodega Bay, they set up residence in Travis, Indiana with their sights set on local teen Tanya Richardson (Mädchen Amick) for their next feed. Mary is one mother you don’t won’t like when she’s hangry.

Given the luxury of an hour to bed in David E Kelley’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes takes its time. Introducing us to this world with a gruesome front and centre crime of indiscriminate motive and R rated lashings of claret. Never constrained by network censors this piece of thrilling detective ephemera goes in hard before flashing forward two years, where our protagonist is passed his best.
Slovenly, sloth like and reclined in his lazy boy Gleeson appears immediately comfortable. Portly, indifferent and sporting mammoth chin whiskers his retired detective connects with few people, shares confidants with less and considers companionship a burden. His day consists of sitting amongst a sea of unwashed dishes, empty beer cans and conspicuously avoiding things like personal hygiene. Within twenty minutes Bill Hodges is fully formed with hang ups, characteristic contradictions and »

69-year old author Stephen King has a bunch of his works in the adaptation pipeline currently, but he was able to take a second and reveal which of his works he'd like to see adapted next. The Dark Tower is currently in theaters and The Mist is on the Spike television network. Next up is the Mr. Mercedes 10-part series on the DirecTV Audience Network and the heavily anticipated big screen adaptation of King's It in September. If that wasn't enough, the Netflix movies of King's Gerald's Game and 1922 are also currently in production.
While It remake director Andrés Muschietti has his eyes on King's iconic novel Pet Sematary as well as the author's short science fiction horror story Jaunt, the legendary author has other ideas about what he would like to personally see get adapted next. King recently sat down with Variety to talk about all of his »
R.L. Stine is a cool dude. And he doesn't often speak out of school or criticize other performers, artists, or their work. But he seems rather upset with Jim Carrey's awful performance in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. In fact, he blames the comedian for ruining any chance the book adaptation had of becoming a successful movie series. It did eventually find success as a TV series on Netflix, with Season 2 already shooting and a third season expected. While Stine has yet to comment on Neil Patrick Harris' take on Lemony Snicket's Count Olaf, he had this to say about Jim Carrey.
"A really horrible movie can ruin a book franchise, look what happened to the Lemony Snicket books. Jim Carrey just ruined it. He was so awful. It's weird, they can't really translate it because Lemony Snicket, Daniel Handler, is one of the funniest people on earth. »
For better or for worse, 2017 has proven to be a momentous time to be a Stephen King fan. Just in terms of films, there’s , the first of two It adaptations, another Children of the Corn sequel, a Netflix production of Gerald’s Game and 1922 (based on a little-read 2010 novella). The TV side of things is looking even more robust, with The Mist, Castle Rock and Mr. Mercedes. Understandably, not all of these are going to be passable, let alone good. King is notorious for selling off the film rights to his work to the highest bidder and

We consider Mary Lambert’s adaptation of Pet Sematary to be one of the greatest Stephen King adaptations ever filmed. That being said, the idea of remaking it has been kicking around for a while now, and at one point Jeff… Continue Reading →

Speaking to The Toronto Sun, Barbara revealed that the duo hold the film rights to King’s 1981 short story The Jaunt, but are particularly interested in bringing another of his novels (back) to the big screen.
Published in 1983, Pet Sematary follows a family who move to a small town near a busy highway. Near to their new house is a pet cemetery, beyond which is an ancient Indian burial ground that can bring the dead back to life.
Pet Sematary was previously adapted as a feature in 1989, with the »

Andy Muschietti is not done with Stephen King. The director of the new version of It, King’s famous creepy clown horror story that was originally adapted as a TV miniseries, has set his sights on resurrecting Pet Sematary. But Muschietti still has a ways to go before he exhumes the corpse of Pet Sematary. He is still in the midst […]

It’s been three years since we reported that Jeff Buhler‘s screenplay was nearly complete on the fresh adaptation of Stephen King‘s Pet Sematary. Prior to that, 28 Weeks Later director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was attached to direct for Paramount, with Guillermo del Toro vying for the job back in 2015. While the project appears to be […] »

The idea of a Pet Sematary remake is basically a nicely wrapped gift for people who like to make easy jokes, seeing as how the original story and movie are about dead things coming back to life and turning evil, so we should all be grateful that It director Andy Muschietti recently told the Toronto Sun (via io9) that he’d like to make a new version of Pet Sematary someday. Hey, it’s almost like this guy never read the book, huh? Where the cat comes back evil and then the kid comes back evil? Who knows, maybe the movie itself will come back evil!
Easy jokes aside, Muschietti says he and his sister/writing partner Barbara Muschietti are “huge fans of Pet Sematary,” and he apparently has a version of the story in mind that he’d like to do. “If we can get our hands on that »

It hasn’t arrived in theatres just yet, but already, the film is generating an enourmous amount of pre-release buzz, all of which is very positive. Each trailer has been better than the last and some are already hailing it as one of the most terrifying movies ever made. A bold claim, to be sure, but if director Andy Muschietti can deliver and give us a horrifying and well executed adaptation of Stephen King’s classic story, then you can bet that it won’t be the last time he works with the iconic author.
Indeed, it seems that the director already has his eye on updating another one of King’s novels: Pet Sematary. Of course, the tale was already adapted in 1989 by Mary Lambert to moderate critical and financial success, but that’s not to say it can’t use a fresh coat of paint, right?

Thirty-four years later, Pet Sematary remains one of Stephen King’s most viscerally nasty books, an ugly blend of otherworldly temptation and very real paternal fears. King has famously stated that much of the book’s horror had, as its inspiration, a house he and his family rented in Orrington, Maine in the 1970s, which was situated close to a busily traveled road that always seemed primed to lure cats, dogs, and (potentially) kids under the wheels of inattentive truck drivers. (Hence the crudely assembled pet cemetery built by local youths on the back of the property.)
Well, now, you, too, can live with the perpetual fear that your beloved animals and family members might someday be torn away from you, only to tempt you to madness with the possibility of their grim return. Per Wcsh-6, the 113-year-old home is now up for sale, complete with two floors, two fireplaces »

Stephen King lived in this house. Now you can. As explained on Stephen King’s official website, it was while living at a rental home in Orrington, Maine in early 1979 that King was struck with the inspiration to write Pet Sematary, released in 1983 and turned into a movie in 1989. The site explains the novel’s origin […] »

Stephen King published his first novel in 1974. That novel, Carrie, would go on to sell more than a million copies in its first year of publication. The popularity of this book resulted in a movie adaptation two years later. As Stephen King released more novels, his popularity as an author grew, and many more films, miniseries, TV shows, and graphic novels came to be based on his writings. Today, King is one of the most well known and successful modern writers. Although he has written in many genres (including contributions to comic books), he is best known for his horror writings.
58 films have been released so far that have been based at least in some part on the writings of Stephen King. »

“I don’t think we have to go into the supernatural to find horror and terror,” the show’s star Brendan Gleeson said at the “Mr. Mercedes” premiere, held Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. “What it’s about is something that could be in every one of us.”
Harry Treadaway, who plays the villainous Brady Hartsfield, echoed Gleeson’s sentiment on the supernatural-less horror story.
“What’s more terrifying to me is what’s going on on your street and in your neighborhood,” Treadaway said. “It’s that sort of cul-de-sac, documentary horror that Stephen King is brilliant at doing. He finds the horror in the lies between people who think they are telling the truth, or »

Sydney Park Interview
You might not be too familiar with the name Sydney Park, but if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead then you’ll definitely know the face. Park joined the show last season as Cyndie, the grand-daughter of Natania, the leader of the Oceanside clan. Last we saw her, Cyndie and her people were being ambushed by Rick’s posse for their arsenal of guns.
She’s actually been in the industry since she was six, when she started doing stand-up on America’s got Talent. Over the years she’s worked for Disney as well as being a main cast member on Nickelodeon show Instant Mom. Recently though, Park has been hard at work in new horror Wish Upon.
