Why do we like horror, anyway? Stephen King knows better than most.
Stephen King’s classic books are tied to a specific era in American history. The white picket fences and creeping dread of his New England horror universe are tied up in the ‘70s and ‘80s, to Carter and Reagan, with nostalgia inside of them dating even further back.
After years of being stuck in development hell and having a number of different directors reportedly attached to the film, the first trailer for Paramount’s big screen remake of Pet Sematary is here to resurrect one of Stephen King’s most disturbing stories ever.
Castle Rock just dropped its season finale, “Romans.” Did we get an explanation for every aspect of the Hulu show’s multi-layered, Stephen King-inspired mystery? Nope. We got something even better: an ending that revealed most, but not all, and somehow felt satisfying while also being completely bleak.
Castle Rock’s season finale is next week. But if you thought you had an idea of where the Stephen King-inspired mystery series was heading, this week’s episode, “Henry Deaver,” will make you rethink everything. Or, it’ll confirm all the sneaking suspicions you’ve had all along. Or maybe...both.
The Nun, a prequel delving into the antagonist first introduced in The Conjuring 2, comes out September 7—just the latest project spawned by the spooky franchise (lest we forget, a third Annabelle movie is now in the works). Now that horror spinoffs are all the rage, we have a few suggestions beyond the Conjuring …
Fall means colder days, longer nights, and the first waves of panic about holiday shopping. We’ve already told you all about the films you might be interested in but collected here—in a list that numbers nearly 100 entries—is the season’s vast array of sci-fi and fantasy books. Plus a few collections, memoirs, and…
Castle Rock has thus far mostly followed the story of Henry Deaver, a man forced to confront a past he neither understands nor fully remembers when he returns to his Maine hometown. “The Queen,” the show’s most daring episode yet, shifts the show’s focus to another character: Henry’s mother, Ruth.
The very tense, very enigmatic sixth episode of Hulu’s Castle Rock, “Filter,” is up today, which means we’ve passed the halfway point of the Stephen King-inspired supernatural thriller. Here’s what has happened so far—and why you should tune in for the rest.
Stephen King adaptations are everywhere these days, from movie theaters to network TV to streaming services. And while Hulu has gone the series route with Castle Rock, Netflix is dabbling in original movies. Two are already on the service—Gerald’s Game and 1922—and a third is now on the way.
I didn’t grow up with Stephen King. Apart from checking out the TV miniseries The Stand, and my mom once seeing him at a casino, King and his work haven’t been a part of my life. Having barely visited his stuff, I was curious whether Hulu’s Castle Rock—a series that dwells within King’s stories, intertwining his …
We all know the big names behind Hulu’s Castle Rock—Stephen King, J.J. Abrams—but at Comic-Con, we got a chance to talk to its co-creators, Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason. Of course, they couldn’t reveal too many secrets, but we did learn more about what to expect from the new series.
So far, the marketing for Castle Rock—the J.J. Abrams-produced Hulu show that’s set in Stephen King’s sinister vision of small-town Maine—has been appropriately eerie and deliberately mysterious. The first episode had its world premiere at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, and all we can say is: more, please.
We’ll have more on Castle Rock, Hulu’s Stephen King-inspired series, very soon—including a review of the eerie first episode. But first, here’s an early treat for fans of King, true crime, and spooky history, in the form of a Hulu-produced short documentary investigating how Maine itself has inspired the horror author…
The nostalgia revival train keeps on chugging. This time it’s George A. Romero and Stephen King’s ‘80s anthology Creepshow. It’s being turned into a television show this time and it has the perfect creator attached.
Welcome to Castle Rock, a town embroiled in mystery, balloons and long stares. The latest trailer for Hulu’s Stephen King saga adds to the mystery and hypes Bill Skarsgård’s character, but continues to leave the plot on the cutting room floor. What exactly is going on here?
The Losers’ Club is reuniting in Derry, and now they’re all grown up.
It feels like almost every single day, a new Stephen King property moves forward in Hollywood. Yesterday, it was The Boogeyman. A few weeks ago, it was the sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep. Now, the remake of Firestarter has taken a jump forward by landing acclaimed director Fatih Akin.
Another day, another Stephen King adaptation. This one has some extra juice, though, because it’s from the makers of Stranger Things and A Quiet Place.
This week, Media Rights Capital revealed it commissioned a 10-episode adaptation of crime thriller The Outsider by an author who has seemingly become the most desirable man in Hollywood lately: Stephen King. A lot of King’s work is currently in the process of being remade for television and film—so here’s a reminder…
