31 Great Horror Movies: ‘The Shining’

I really didn’t mean to put so many Stephen King stories in our 31 Days of Horror. It just kind of happens. He is the Master of Horror, though, so I guess it makes sense. His best story, “The Shining,” made such a terrifying movie. It’s one that sticks with anyone who sees it. “The […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Misery’

I’ve never been sure if “Misery‘s” Paul Sheldon was the unluckiest man on the planet or if Annie Wilkes was the luckiest woman on the planet. Paul (James Caan) just happened to have a nasty car accident on the same road Annie (Kathy Bates) drives. Paul is Annie’s favorite author. She’s his No. 1 fan, […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Carrie’

“Carrie” isn’t like other horror movies. The bad guy is really the good guy driven by bad people to do bad things. I think if I took another minute I could make that last sentence even more confusing. Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) is your typical high school outcast. She’s a frumpy dresser, she’s quiet and […]

31 Great Horror Movies: ‘Christine’

[…]

Update on two ‘Children of the Corn’ remakes

I know the original “Children of the Corn” was bad, but do we really need two remakes to make up for it? Not only is SyFy (still can’t get over what a dumb re-name that was) airing a TV-movie version of “Children of the Corn,” Dimension has announced a theatrical remake already equipped with a […]

The Dark Tower Adaptation Will Have To Wait For Lost

Damon Lindelof, the executive producer of “Lost” and the upcoming reboot of Star Trek, has optioned the rights along with JJ Abrams to Stephen King’s opus, “The Dark Tower”. King gave them the rights for just $19 (nineteen has special significance in the seven novel series) last summer, but little had been heard on the […]
