Summer is over. We're entering the weekend past Labor Day. And yet, officially, technically (sorry everyone back in school), we've still got two more weeks. Lucky us. Lucky that now, when someone comes a knocking slinging nonsense like, "Th...

Review: The Dark Tower

If you've read Stephen King's prolific Dark Tower saga you know it's a weird, wonderful, flawed, brilliant, mess of an epic that touches so many genres it's hard to classify it at all. It bounces from western to science fiction to...

See The Dark Tower Early and free

I am so incredibly worried about The Dark Tower. The series of Stephen King books that the film is based on is some of my favorite writing, but this movie doesn't really look much like them. It's got a good cast, but the studio is dumping i...

The Dark Tower receives another trailer, still has a tower

Okay, no, Andy Serkis is not actually playing the tower, much to my own disappointment. Though, I'm sure if he did, there'd be some article praising how he gave the tower some much-deserved characterization, and truly brought the role to li...

The Dark Tower receives its first trailer

First, if you haven't read Stephen King's The Dark Tower series go and do that. It's fantastic, and his greatest undertaking as a writer. It's a massive western, science fiction, fantasy, met narrative that can get unwieldy, but i...

Here's the first look at the It reboot's new Pennywise

Watch The Chickening, a NSFW and WTF parody of The Shining

Nick DenBoer and Davy Force's The Chickening is a poultry-centric parody of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. I want you to pause a moment, read that sentence again, and then just watch the NSFW video below. That was the Citizen Kane of poult...

Matthew McConaughey up for villain role in The Dark Tower

If you said to me that Matthew McConaughey was going to star in The Dark Tower films being made I'd instantly think he'd be playing Roland, the Stephen King series's protagonist. However, Variety is reporting that he's been offered the...

Cujo remake has terrible new title

Ready to bash your head against your keyboard. They're remaking Cujo (no, don't bash yet) and the new film is going to be called C.U.J.O. That stands for Canine Unit Joint Operations (you're good to bash now).  A remake ...

"It" no longer has director

Well... It is supposed to start shooting in mid-June, but over the weekend, the adaptation of the Stephen King-classic It, has lost its director, Cary Fukunaga. It is a shame, isn't it? According to Deadline, the True Detective director has...

Cary Fukunaga to start It adaptation next summer

A new film adaptation of Stephen King's It has been bouncing around for a while now with director Cary Fukunaga attached. It hasn't really gotten off the ground, though, but now, possibly because Fukunaga is so cool nowadays thanks to ...

Pet Sematary gets a remake with 28 Weeks Later director

As someone who enjoys the occasional horror film, I don't love seeing original concepts run through the ground over and over again. Sure that's what most of the genre is built on, but I do avoid lots of unnecessary sequels and remakes (alth...

Affleck off The Stand, Scott Cooper in to direct

One of the things that happens when you get cast as Batman is that Batman becomes a major time suck. Affleck now has a Batman/Superman movie to start in, a JLA film to star in (and possible direct) and most likely a stand alone Batman film ...

New Carrie reboot photos spoil the ending

Granted Stephen King's story is so well known by now that everyone knows the ending, but these images kind of take out the emotional punch that Carrie needs. The final scenes are supposed to be so shockingly vibrant that Carrie's emotional ...

Stephen King's It getting adapted into two movies

It is one of my favorite Stephen King books, to the point where I wind up re-reading it every year, and every year I thoroughly enjoy it until the adolescent gangbang at the end. Seriously. If you don't remember that, you probably are ...

Jonathan Demme will adapt an upcoming Stephen King novel

Harry Potter director and writer set to adapt The Stand

I will say it now: The Stand is Stephen King's best book. Or, the Complete and Uncut Edition is, anyway. It's also one of his longest books, and, as we all know, the longer a story is, the more difficult it is to adapt. Well, it seems ...
