Insight into the King of horror... 23 Jan. 2015
By Detour - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been a big Stephen King fan, ever since I first read FIRESTARTER, way back in 1982. As a rule, I always read a King book first, before seeing one of the adaptations. I always find this improves the movie for me, as I can fill in the story with what I read in the novel. So being a fan of both King and horror films, I was looking forward to getting some insight on each of the films. Well, brother, let me tell ya, I was not disappointed. A great read, fun, with humor in the right doses. Lots of facts and trivia that I wasn't aware of. I was a little sad when this one ended.

Highly recommend to Stephen King fans, horror fans and film fans
A great read, tho too hard on Hooper's 'SALEM'S LOT & NIGHTFLIER 22 Mar. 2014
By Derek Jager - Published on
Format: Paperback
Really a terrific read with great insights and explanations as to why some films works, others don't and why so many STILL
have not been made. (Although THE TAILSMAN will probably be a mistake after all this time, as will a remake of THE STAND.)

I think he was a bit too hard on Tobe Hooper's `SALEM'S LOT--but when compared to the remake, he seems to give it more faint praise. And I think THE NIGHTFLIER remains an excellent King adaption.

And to think, he had to watch all those films and listen to all those commentaries!
An amazing, absorbing, and very witty must read for Stephen King fans 13 Mar. 2014
By Bill Baker - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are a Stephen King fan as I am, then dive into this incredible study of all those films and TV shows made from his works - like you, I have seen some of these and, like you,
have my favorites, but Scott Van Doviak knows his stuff and writes with wit and flair, and as he suggests - this may be a book you want to keep by your bedside or chairside and delve into occasionally - an entertaining and fun read.

This is a must read for all Stephen King fans.
The Definitive Book on the Movies of Stephen King 30 May 2014
By Josh Wiles - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have many a book on the various movies made from Stephen King's writings. They all pale in comparison to this tome. From Carrie to the endless parade of Children of the Corn movies to the more recent Under the Dome tv show, this book covers every movie or mini-series to date. From the pre-production process to the behind the scenes drama to the good and bad of the finished product, this book covers it all. If you are a horror fan, a Stephen King, or a movie fan, you won't regret picking up this book.
Great read. Perfect for beach, bathroom or coffee table. 18 May 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I expected to jump around in this book and only read about my favorite Stephen King movies, but I ended up reading the whole thing. The author has a fun way of presenting facts. I laughed a few times. And he comes up with some interesting behind the scenes stuff I’d never heard about. He did a book about the terminator movie that I also liked a lot.
