WRITTEN BY STEPHEN KING

October 7

Stephen King has ruled popular culture as few writers ever have, a breakout acolyte of pulp genius cult writers like H.P. Lovecraft, Jim Thompson, and Donald Westlake who has kept his mass audience riveted since the publication of his first novel, Carrie, in 1974. Directed with verve by Brian de Palma, Carrie would be a sensation in cinemas as well, and King’s influence on movies has been felt ever since—not exclusively but especially in the horror genre. It is in honor of the fecund, warped mind of the man from Bangor, Maine, then, that Metrograph presents a ghoulish parade of cinematic King adaptations.
