Cast This: Kurt Barlow (Salem's Lot)

  • JoBlo
It may not be the best Stephen King adaptation out there, but I've got a special place in my nostalgia-filled heart for 1979's Salem's Lot mini-series. Filled with atmosphere and suspense, there are moments in the forty-year-old series which still horrify, and the ones which still get me are the appearances of Kurt Barlow (Reggie Nalder), the ancient vampire looking to…

The 10 Scariest Stephen King Movies Ever, Ranked

The 10 Scariest Stephen King Movies Ever, Ranked
Stephen King's status as the master of horror is well-earned. With 88 books and counting to his name, the author's ability to tap into the human psyche and uncover what scares us the most has become uncanny - and Hollywood took notice a long time ago. Not including sequels, more than 40 films based on King's work have been made since 1976's Carrie. In 2019 alone, we got a remake of Pet Sematary, the highly anticipated release of It: Chapter II, and Doctor Sleep (aka the cinematic follow-up to The Shining).

Ranked from simply scary to sleep-with-the-lights-on levels of fear, these movies all had theatrical releases (that means Salem's Lot fans are out of luck), and they all showcase exactly why King will always be the true master of horror in the realms of literature and film.

31 Best Streaming Horror TV Shows

Alec Bojalad Louisa Mellor Oct 2, 2019

Gathered here are the scariest and most bingeable horror shows that Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and more have to offer.

Horror and television have always been a bit of an awkward fit. What's scary and what's bingeable sometimes seem mutually exclusive. Horror requires that you suspend your disbelief and the longer it asks of your attention span, the higher the risk that the tension wanes.

Still, in the modern streaming era, there are plenty of horror TV shows that get the spooky job done. Gathered on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and HBO Now are some truly great bingeable options to elevate the heart rate. Here we've compiled the very best of the best. What follows are the 31 best streaming horror TV shows.

I think almost everybody has read Stephen King’s books. There's a reason his name resonates so powerfully. Were any of you super big Stephen King fans when you were younger?

Jessica Chastain: I was. I think Pet Sematary was one of the first books that I read that wasn't assigned to me. And then I went from there to The Shining to Misery.

Stephen King's The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon Movie Happening with George Romero's Wife
Yet another one of Stephen King's works is set to get the big screen treatment. It's come to light that the author's 1999 novel The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon is being adapted into a movie, with a very interesting team coming together to make it happen. Chris Romero, wife of the late horror master George A. Romero (Night of the Living Dead) has partnered with It Chapter Two producer Roy Lee to bring the book to life.

According to a new report, Chris Romero, along with Roy Lee, Jon Berg of Vertigo Films and Ryan Silbert of Origin Story, are all on board to produce The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon as a movie.

Rutger Hauer Dies at 75, Star of Blade Runner, The Hitcher & Batman Begins

Rutger Hauer Dies at 75, Star of Blade Runner, The Hitcher & Batman Begins
Rutger Hauer, known best for his role in Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic Blade Runner, has died. Hauer was 75-years-old at the time of his passing. The news has been confirmed by his agents, as well as multiple outlets. The actor's funeral has already been held. While no specific cause of death was revealed, it's said Hauer passed after a short illness.

A beloved character actor who spent nearly five decades in the business, Rutger Hauer's career dates back to 1969, when he starred on the TV series Floris. However, it was his work as replicant Roy Batty in Ridley Scott's 1982 movie Blade Runner that Hauer will be remembered best for. While Blade Runner was a bomb at the time of its release, it's since gone on to become a true classic, with many considering it to be one of the finest sci-fi movies ever made. Hauer's performance is no small part of that.

Rutger Hauer Has Passed Away

Whether you knew him as replicant Roy Batty in Blade Runner or John Ryder in The Hitcher, Rutger Hauer is widely regarded as one of the most talented and versatile actors of the last six decades, and it is with deep sadness that we share the news of his passing away at the age of 75.

Multiple sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, have reported the news of Hauer's passing. According to THR, Hauer's agent, Steve Kenis, let them know that Hauer passed away last Friday at his home in the Netherlands following "a short illness," with his funeral taking place among his family on Wednesday.

An actor with more than 170 credits to his name (according to IMDb), Hauer always brought authenticity to his wide range of roles, from the aforementioned Batty and Ryder to Joseph Peach in Channel Zero: Butcher's Block, Van Helsing in Dario Argento's Dracula 3D, Heymar 'Wulfgar' Reinhardt in Nighthawks,

Aquaman 2 Won't Be James Wan's Next Movie

Aquaman 2 Won't Be James Wan's Next Movie
DC fans may have to wait a little while before cameras get rolling on Aquaman 2, as James Wan intends to direct another movie before heading back to the world of Atlantis. Wan has become one of Warner Bros. go-to creative minds, as he's the key producer of The Conjuring universe movies, in addition to the man that really helped get the Dceu back on track with last year's Aquaman. While he's likely going to return for the follow-up, it's not going to be his next project.

James Wan has been making the rounds to promote the release of Annabelle Comes Home, which recently hit theaters. During a recent interview, he was asked what his next movie is going to be as a director. Specifically, if he's going to be doing Aquaman 2. Wan politely stated that won't be the case.

"It wouldn't be Aquaman 2 just yet."

Every indication is that Warner Bros.

James Wan's Salem's Lot Will Stay as Close to Stephen King's Book as Possible

James Wan's Salem's Lot Will Stay as Close to Stephen King's Book as Possible
I'm not sure if you guys know this about me by this point in time, but I'm a massive Stephen King fan. And thus one of the upcoming horror movies I'm looking forward to checking out the most is producer James Wan and screenwriter Gary Dauberman's big-screen adaptation of King's horrific vampire novel Salem's Lot. And today Dauberman spoke a bit about the upcoming film and how he is approaching penning the adaptation - mostly, that he plans for the film to be as faithful to the original novel as possible.

Specifically, the Annabelle Comes Home and It Chapter Two screenwriter says this.

"I like to be as true to the story as I possibly can until it gets a little too unwieldy for a movie. I'm very, very excited to be a part of that and tackle it. It hasn't had the big screen treatment yet, which is how I felt about It.

New ‘Salem’s Lot Movie Hopes for Terrifying Vampires

Don Kaye Jun 26, 2019

Annabelle Comes Home writer/director Gary Dauberman tells us what to expect from his new 'Salem's Lot movie.

Den of Geek had a chance to speak with Gary Dauberman, writer and director of Annabelle Comes Home. Dauberman makes his debut behind the camera on the film, but has written a number of scripts in the Annabelle/Conjuring universe as well as working on the screenplays for It and It: Chapter Two with director Andy Muschetti.

So it wasn’t exactly a surprise when it was announced back in April that Dauberman and James Wan would produce a film adaptation of another classic Stephen King novel, ‘Salem’s Lot, with Dauberman writing the screenplay. The book, published in 1975, was King’s second novel and took place in a small Maine town that is overrun by vampires.

Deadline reports that Øvredal will direct an adaptation of The Long Walk for New Line Cinema.

Written by Stephen King under the pseudonym Richard Bachman and published in 1979, The Long Walk "takes place in the future in which 100 teenage boys embark on an annual competition known as 'The Long Walk.'

Salem's Lot: James Wan and It Screenwriter Team Up for Stephen King Adaptation

Matthew Byrd Apr 24, 2019

Salem's Lot, one of Stephen King's best novels, is finally getting a big screen adaptation.

Yet another Stephen King novel has been tapped for a modern adaptation as It screenwriter Gary Dauberman is set to pen an adaptation of Stephen King's classic vampire novel, Salem's Lot

What's really catching everyone's attention, though, is the fact that James Wan is producing the film alongside Roy Lee and Mark Wolper. As of this writing, none of the people officially involved with the project have been signed on to direct. However, there have been loose rumors for quite some time now that Wan is interested in directing a Salem's Lot movie. 

While it's a little strange that Wan wouldn't be named as the director at this time if that was the studio's plans, it's not impossible that he could agree to direct at a later date. The only upcoming

James Wan to Produce and Gary Dauberman to Write New Adaptation of Stephen King’s ’Salem’S Lot

After teaming up several times to bring nightmares to life in The Conjuring cinematic universe, James Wan and Gary Dauberman are now looking to bring one of Stephen King's classic stories to the big screen.

According to multiple sources, including The Hollywood Reporter, a movie adaptation of King's 1975 novel ’Salem's Lot is in the works at New Line Cinema, with James Wan producing and Gary Dauberman executive producing and writing the screenplay based on King's beloved book. Roy Lee and Mark Wolper are also on board as producers. A director has yet to be named.

A story about an author who moves back to his hometown only to discover that it's being overrun by vampires (thanks to the enigmatic new resident in town known as Kurt Barlow), ’Salem's Lot was adapted as a TV miniseries in 1979 by Tobe Hooper and in 2004 by Mikael Salomon. A sequel to the 1979 miniseries,

Stephen King's Salem's Lot Movie Gets Producer James Wan and It Writer
Stephen King's Salem's Lot is finally coming to the big screen, courtesy of The Conjuring filmmaker James Wan and It screenwriter Gary Dauberman. King is, and has been, one of the premier voices in horror for decades now. That being the case, quite a few of his novels have been adapted for the big screen, with mixed results. But Salem's Lot has yet to actually be turned into a theatrically released movie. Until now that is. And two of the biggest names in the horror genre working today are on board.

According to a new report, Gary Dauberman will write the adaptation of Salem's Lot for Warner Bros.' New Line Cinema, with James Wan producing. Wan and Dauberman have teamed up for several entries in the very successful Conjuring franchise at New Line. As such, it's not terribly surprising that they've tapped the duo to bring this vampire

Interview: The Nun Director Corin Hardy on Working with James Wan, Casting Taissa Farmiga and Bonnie Aarons, and His Paranormal Set Experience

  • DailyDead
It only takes a few minutes of talking to Corin Hardy to know that he’s a monster kid at heart, and he got to live his dream by filming The Nun in Romania. As part of the press event for the movie, I had a chance to join a handful of journalists for an interview session with Hardy to discuss working with James Wan, changes made to the script, working with Taissa Farmiga, Demián Bichir, and Bonnie Aarons, and he told us about his on-set paranormal experience.

What was your relationship like with James Wan during the making of The Nun?

Corin Hardy: He’s a fan of this stuff. Anyone who's a fan of a certain thing, whether it's a band, or a style of music, or a film, or a genre, you are immediately on a level with them. So, once you've met someone that you admire,
