The King Reviews

King

I’ll admit that I’m a moderate Stephen King fan, mostly I enjoy his short stories more than his novels and his non-fiction book “On Writing” is one of my favourite books.  Over the many years since King gained a following and became regarded as one of the best writers of our time, much of his work has been adapted for film and television and has not always been received well in this medium.  But there are some good adaptations and some that start out well, then take a dive.

Now with “Under the Dome” moving forward as a full on T.V. series, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at some of the films and television offerings created by and adapted from King’s work.  There is certainly no shortage of both.  Up first and posting shortly is the 1999 mini-series, Storm of The Century.
