Stephen King at the movies : a complete history of the film and television adaptations from the master of horror / Ian Nathan.

Nathan, Ian, (author.).



"Surely America's greatest storyteller, no single author has been adapted more regularly than Stephen King. With sixty-five existing movies and thirty television shows, and many more to come, the concept of the King adaptation lies at the core of what we understand as Hollywood entertainment, the essence of horror, and the landscape of American life. Illustrated with a fabulous array of familiar and unusual iconography, this is the most comprehensive account of the films and television series adapted from the work of Stephen King ever put together. Every Children of the Corn movie has been accounted for; every remake and reboot, from Carrie to IT, wrestled into submission; all the dark recesses of King's imagination brought out into the light. Including fresh critical analysis, interviews, behind-the scenes revelations and biographical detail, this is both a King completist's dream and a must for all movie fans."--Page [4] of cover.
