Posted: April 4, 2019 at 4:24 pm   /   Film, Movie Reviews, Reviews

Sometimes dead is better. And, sometimes remakes actually are too. Pet Sematary remains one of Stephen King’s most troubling novels.

Posted: September 7, 2017 at 6:31 pm   /   Movie Reviews, Reviews

When word spread that Stephen King’s classic tale,”It,” was being remade, many wondered if Pennywise the Clown would be as memorable as Tim Curry’s Pennywise was in the made-for-TV movie.

Will Christian Bale Be The Gunslinger In Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower”?

Posted: January 26, 2011 at 5:10 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie News

First off let me say that I love Christian Bale.  The man has turned in outstanding performances for years, and I’m completely stoked for him to receive his first Oscar statue.  Also, he plays Batman which is easily my favorite superhero franchise.  Double bonus.  So I am okay with him playing any part he wants […]

I’m still getting used to typing a name as stupid as SyFy. I didn’t think when you had such a literal name that it would be that hard for people for forget how to spell it. I’d like to know how well this gimmick worked out for them. As far as I can recall I […]

Mandalay Pictures options Joe Hill’s ‘Horns’

Posted: October 12, 2009 at 11:21 am   /   Local, Movie News

This really doesn’t sound like a big deal (and it may not be), but when you are the son of famous author Stephen King, the media kind of steps up and notices.
