The New York Times gives Mr Mercedes a thumbs up.

Mr. Mercedes
Season 1, AT&T/DirecTV, Aug. 9

Based on its first two episodes, this dramatization of the Edgar Award-winning 2014 mystery novel of the same title is the Stephen King adaptation to watch this summer. (Spike’s version of “The Mist” debuts June 22.) David E. Kelley wrote the 10-episode series about a retired detective taunted by a mass killer he couldn’t catch. It has a bit of a “Mr. Robot” vibe and an interesting cast that includes Brendan Gleeson, Holland Taylor, Breeda Wool, Kelly Lynch and Mary-Louise Parker. Harry Treadaway of “Penny Dreadful” plays the killer, replacing Anton Yelchin, who died last year before filming began.

Here are a few now photos from Mr Mercedes.

Here is my review (pretty spoiler free) of the first episode of The Mist TV series. It premiers June 22 on Spike.

The Mist is here! The TV series that is. And let’s start with the elephant in the room. Is it a straight adaptation of King’s story?

Most of you have seen The Dark Tower trailer and most of you also saw the references to The Shining and IT. Now King reveals that Cujo will make an appearance in the movie.

King told IGN , "If viewers who are familiar with my work look very closely, they might see Cujo. Keep an eye out for Cujo in New York City."

You have heard about this before and now the time to help getting this documentary done is here. Pennywise: The Story of IT Documentary will be 3-hours long and cover everything about the 1990 adaptation of King’s books including over 20 interviews and over 2 hours of never-before-seen set footage from SFX wizard Bart Mixon. To make it happen the filmmakers need your help though and they are giving you a great opportunity to help and also get something in return. Besides the documentary itself your pledge will give you a copy of the documentary on DVD or blu-ray, a t-shirt or other cool stuff depending on how much you give.

Personally, I’m certain that they will get the money they need to make this documentary, the only question is if you will take the chance to be a part of it. Check out the video and then head over here to read all about it and find out how you can help.

The Shining Haunted House

Posted: May 23, 2017, 08:27:18

Universal has announced that a house of horrors based on King’s The Shining and the movie adaptation from Stanley Kubrick will be coming to this year’s edition of “Halloween Horror Nights,” a series of huge haunted houses and other big-budget horror-themed attractions in Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort every October.

A press release from Universal states that visitors to the Shining maze will get to find their way through the Overlook Hotel and its grounds, “bearing witness to caretaker Jack Torrance’s spiraling descent into insanity.” The release promises that “nightmarish visions will come to life in this macabre maze, overwhelming guests with the ‘shine’ of the murderous, ghostly entities that lurk around every turn.” It even promises that those same guests will “relive some of the film’s most iconic, and sinister, moments.”
