‘The Dark Tower’ TV Series Cast Adds ‘Game of Thrones’ Actor Jerome Flynn as a ‘Cowboy’

Having failed to work on the big screen, Stephen King‘s fantasy epic The Dark Tower is headed to smaller pastures with Amazon’s new Dark Tower TV series. Rather than follow the path of King’s books exactly, the series is said to be more of a prequel – which means it will likely use elements from the forth book in the series, Wizard and Glass. We already learned who would be playing the leads of the show, and now a new Dark Tower TV series cast member has been added. Jerome Flynn, who plays Bron...

‘Rest Stop’ Movie, Based on a Stephen King Story, Will Be Directed by Alex Ross Perry

Her Smell director Alex Ross Perry wants in on the ongoing Stephen King adaptation boom. The filmmaker will write and direct Rest Stop, based on a King story of the same name. King’s tale follows a mystery writer who intervenes in an act of domestic violence unfolding at a rest stop. The story is very brief, and even a bit anticlimactic, so you can expect Perry to take some liberties with his adaptation. Alex Ross Perry has had a bit of an odd career, jumping from under-the-radar indie title...

Horror Legend Tom Savini Directing ‘Creepshow’ TV Series Episode Based on a Joe Hill Story

Director and make-up legend Tom Savini created effects for George Romero’s Creepshow movie, so it’s only fitting that Savini would have a part to play in Shudder’s Creepshow TV series. Savini will direct an episode of the show, adapted from Joe Hill‘s short story “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain.” The story involves a Loch Ness Monster-like creature. It would be wrong to have some sort of new Creepshow without Tom Savini, and thankfully, Shudder knows that. The director, actor and make...

The new version of Pet Sematary is a little more intimate than the average horror movie. Staying true to the spirit of Stephen King‘s book, there’s about as much drama as horror in Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer new version of the classic story. Especially in the first hour, the filmmakers take their time to make the Creed family a believable unit with both joy and pain in their lives.

‘Pet Sematary’ Book vs. Film vs. Film: Comparing Stephen King’s Novel With Its Two Film Adaptations

In 1983, Stephen King released Pet Sematary, a novel so unsettling that even King himself felt he had gone too far. Decades later, it holds up as one of the author’s best, and scariest, books. Hollywood has turned to King’s novel about a cursed burial ground twice now (three times if you want to count a sequel that has nothing to do with King). In 1989, Mary Lambert helmed a spooky, somewhat campy, but still effective adaptation. Now, in 2019, Paramount is set to release a new take on the tale ...
