Pet Sematary

Back in 2010 the writer behind 1408 was hired to work on a remake of Pet Sematary. Obviously that didn’t work out.

Now, after another adaptation of a Stephen King story in IT had great success at the box office, Paramount wants to keep things rolling with another crack at Pet Sematary. To make this happen for them, the studio has hired Starry Eyes directors Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer to make the movie.

Stephen King Sleeping Beauties

You may have heard of Stephen King. I think he sold a book or two… or 350 million. The world-famous author and his son, fellow author Owen King, packed the St. Ann’s & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, September 26, as part of an event put on by Books Are Magic, a bookstore in Cobble Hill. We got there for the 8:00 PM event at 4:30 PM, and the line was already wrapped around the block. I asked the group sitting in folding chairs in the front when they got there and the casually responded, 9:30 AM. Introduced by Emma Straub, owner of the bookstore and daughter of King collaborator Peter Straub, the Kings took the stage to raucous applause. The two were there to introduce their latest project, the 700-page novel Sleeping Beauties, as well as take part in a self-led Q&A.

Gerald's Game Netflix Carla Gugino Bruce Greenwood

Gerald’s Game
Based on the novel by Stephen King
Written by Jeff Howard and Mike Flanagan
Directed by Mike Flanagan
Starring Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, Carel Struycken, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel
Netflix
Released date: September 29, 2017

The new film Gerald’s Game marks the fourth Stephen King adaptation of 2017. This summer’s The Dark Tower was universally panned and flopped at the box office, yet It, conversely, is currently breaking box office records. Mr. Mercedes is a television series on a new platform, AT&T’s Audience Network, while Gerald’s Game landed on Netflix right before Halloween season officially begins. King’s novel Gerald’s Game was published in May 1992 and remained one of the author’s lesser-known works until Netflix optioned it. Directed by Mike Flanagan, one of horror’s up and coming auteurs, who co-wrote the screenplay with collaborator Jeff Howard, the results are a tour-de-force of filmmaking and acting that needs to be watched, albeit from between the fingers of your hand covering your face.

‘1922’: Watch A Trailer For Another Movie Based On A Stephen King Story

Netflix's 1922 Trailer

Adaptations of the stories of horror legend Stephen King have been popular for a long time, but the author’s works have been particularly popular lately. A trailer was released recently for the latest King adaptation, titled 1922, which is based on the novella of the same name.

An adaptation of King’s Gerald’s Game arrives on Netflix in just a few days from now, and a couple of weeks back the new adaptation of IT hit theaters and has done incredibly well for an R-rated release, recently passing Universal’s middle-finger to the original remake of The Mummy, which had the more box office-friendly PG-13 rating. Proof once again that an R-rating is not a risk. The risk is in who you pay to make the movie.

Continue below to check out the trailer for 1922.

Movie Review: Stephen King’s IT (2017)

Stephen King's It Movie Header

Stephen King’s IT
Directed by Andy Muschietti
Written by Chase Palmer, Cary Fukunaga, and Gary Dauberman
Starring Bill Skarsgård, Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Nicholas Hamilton, Jackson Robert Scott
Warner Bros. Pictures
Release date: September 8, 2017

The first adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel It was a 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as the child-eating monster. The ambitious project from director Tommy Lee Wallace tried in vain to fit all 1,100 pages of King’s epic novel into two 2-hour blocks and the results were a mixed bag. The first half is nearly universally beloved thanks to some great child acting and Curry chewing the scenery and stealing nights of sleep as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The second half focuses on the adults 27 years later returning to stop the evil again and it falters heavily from cheesy overacting and a universally “be-loathed” giant spider ending.

Coincidentally, it’s 27 year later, and Mama director Andy Muschietti took what worked back in 1990 and focused an entire film on it with Stephen King’s IT.

It Pennywise 2017

Having only seen bits and pieces of original IT TV miniseries, I didn’t know what to expect from the new Stephen King’s IT from director Andy Muschietti. But after catching a screening of new film, I can understand why everyone is so afraid of clowns. That being said, there are a few flaws, but overall, I had a terrifyingly good time. The reaction has been so good that Warner Bros. feels confident enough to move forward with a sequel.
