Stephen King’s New Book Follows Author Haunted by Horrible Adaptations of His Stories

BOSTON, Mass. – Fans of horror maestro Stephen King are in for a treat this fall, as the author is releasing his brand-new book Cursed, which tells the story of a world-famous author who is forced to endure hundreds of awful, half-assed, and downright terrible adaptions of his heralded work. “I’ve written about so many things in my career,” said King, who has produced sixty books and almost two hundred short...

100 Words or Less: On ‘Crimson Peak’

Guillermo del Toro returns to ask the question, “What would it be like if Wuthering Heights was actually interesting?” The film stars big, frilly dresses and freshly starched jackets with a special appearance by all of Liberace’s candelabras. Originally titled The Shining: Origins, the film was altered at the mere mention of a lawsuit, although eagle-eyed viewers will still be able to spot a horrifically CGI’d Scatman Crothers...
