‘The Night Dracula Saved the World’ is the Judd Hirsch Dracula Movie You Need Right Now

It’s the final days of July, and nothing says “dog days of summer” like talking about Halloween TV specials from 1979. Word broke today that Judd Hirsch was joining the cast of the new Steven Spielberg movie, and while some people probably immediately associate Hirsch with Taxi or Independence Day, the first thing I think of is The Night Dracula Saved the World, AKA The Halloween That Almost Wasn’t. The half-hour TV special, which first aired on ABC on October 28, 1979, features Hirsch as a gro...

‘The Shawshank Redemption’ 4K Will Tunnel Its Way to Freedom This September

The Shawshank Redemption, a great movie that got a bad wrap after playing on cable 24 hours a day for five straight years in a row, is coming to 4K. The Stephen King adaptation from director Frank Darabont opened in 1994. While the movie would go on to score some Oscar nominations, it was actually a box office disappointment. Thankfully, Shawshank eventually found its audience on home video. At some point, I feel like it became cool to declare disdain for The Shawshank Redemption. I don’t ha...

‘Chapelwaite’ Red Band Trailer: Adrien Brody Leads a Grisly Stephen King Series

Get ready to sink your teeth into Chapelwaite, a new EPIX series based on the Stephen King short story “Jerusalem’s Lot.” Even if you’ve never read that story you can probably see a connection to another King work – the vampire novel Salem’s Lot. Sure enough, “Jerusalem’s Lot” is a prequel to Salem’s Lot, and now here comes Chapelwaite, which takes considerable liberties with the source material while still remaining firmly within King’s world. And now there’s a bloody new Chapelwaite red band ...

‘The Innocents’ Review: The Superpowered Kids Are Not Alright in Chilling Norwegian Thriller [Cannes]

I’m not entirely sure, but it’s possible that it was watching Children of the Corn that made me realize I definitely never wanted kids. There was something especially traumatizing about young people doing harm, and it was far scarier to me than any supernatural creature out for blood. With diabolical kids, you’ve got all the sadism that humanity is capable of, with none of the shame and restraint that adulthood ideally instills. It’s chilling. While there have been numerous films about sociopat...

‘Lisey’s Story’ Spoiler Review: Maybe Stephen King is the Wrong Choice to Adapt Stephen King

“Everything the same?” This is how Scott Landon, one of many writer characters in the written works of Stephen King, greets his wife, Lisey, when coming home from a hard day of catatonic gazing by the dream pool. Like many creative people, he’s half in this world and half out. His favorite haunt is Boo’ya Moon, a mystical realm, like Never Never Land only scarier and potentially more lobotomizing. It’s the human imagination, literalized as a place of peril and wonder, and it’s only ever a blink...
