Stephen King - The Stand
Well, the long road to seeing a big screen adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel The Stand just got a little longer—since the film’s announcement in 2011, The Stand gained Ben Affleck as a director, then lost him, then gained Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace), and then lost him, too.  And now, the film has...

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s Halloween, which means it’s time for the studios to announce all manner of horror-related news so that we may have all of that Halloween-related click-bait that we desperately feed upon like the blood of innocents.  One such bit of news is the fact that Pet Sematary, the 1989 film based on the darkly horrific 1983 Stephen King...

Perhaps there was a risk when CBS premiered Under the Dome this summer as an event program, but the show opened big and has held on to much of that audience, even though many have complained about how boring and repetitive it became. Perhaps some of those viewers will be back for Season 2, which CBS officially greenlit today, because Stephen King is set to write the...
