What If A Love Song Was A King Book?

Posted: June 20, 2017, 11:34:58

What if a love song was really the title of a King book? What would that look like? Well, Butcher Billy know...


Stephen King is one of the most influential authors of horror, supernatural fiction, suspense, science fiction, and fantasy. His dark and twisted imagination has been crucial in shaping the contemporary pop culture since the late 70's - when his novels were first discovered by filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick and Brian De Palma - until more recently with modern TV series like Stranger Things paying homage to his brilliant influence and monumental contribution to pop culture.

This series imagines an alternate universe in which some of the most hopeless, desperate and tragic heartbreak songs of the 70's and 80's were actually novels written by Stephen King. The concept is to look at the dark side of love through the lenses of pop culture, bringing twisted aspects of his classic stories to play with the original meanings of the songs - that can be completely subverted or strangely emphasized, while paying tribute to the vintage design of the original book covers.

Here is a Pennywise statue that will be released later this year.


A highly detailed Premium Motion Statue of Pennywise from the classic movie. Tim Curry’s likeness of the sewer dwelling clown is hauntingly immortalized in this 15” tall recreation of the character as seen in the popular roadside scene where he waves while holding floating balloons. Best of all, this statue features audio of your favorite lines from the film.

This isn't King but it's his son and I know a lot of you, like me, enjoy Hill almost as much as King. so, I got his latest newsletter and in it were two pretty cool photos.

This one is just for fun...

...but this makes me wish October was here.


Oh, and I found this trailer for the pilot for Locke & Key that never happened. Too bad, it looks really good if you ask me.
