There’s no debate over the fact that Stephen King is a monster when it comes to churning out some of the most chilling and fucked up books out there (and some heartwarming ones too). And his stuff is so good that Hollywood’s been all over him ever since he debuted with Carrie to turn his words into creepy movies. And sometimes, if they’re lucky, the man himself takes a stab at writing his screenplay himself.
Now, I’ll be honest, you’d think that Stephen King, taking a Stephen King novel, and making it a screenplay, would be a slam dunk, but it’s not always the case. Sometimes, his ideas are best left in a dog-eared paperback, and read late at night, under a blanket. With a flickering flashlight.
