I read "the mist" today and it was really scary!

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 03:51 (fifteen years ago) link

from the ages of 10-15 he was the C of C.

now, eh, i'm sure i'd enjoy rereading some of the good ones.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Monday, 23 February 2004 03:56 (fifteen years ago) link

i am looking forward to this new movie, "secret window" which stars johnny depp and john turturro.

oh yeah and know what's annoying? the american version of lars von trier's "the kingdom" is called motherfucking "STEPHEN KING'S KINGDOM HOSPITAL"!!! what the fuck is that shit?!

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 03:59 (fifteen years ago) link

like you'd think he'd be embarrassed about that!

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 03:59 (fifteen years ago) link

and "kingdom hospital" alone would be such a stupider title, even

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 03:59 (fifteen years ago) link

he wrote secret window? that looks cool.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:01 (fifteen years ago) link

of course he wrote it, it's about a writer in maine haunted by a supernatural dude in a hat who accuses him of plagiarism!

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:04 (fifteen years ago) link

don't really get all of that from the commercials. just that it's spooky and has john turturro.

Viva La Sam (thatgirl), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:07 (fifteen years ago) link

i hope it's good but the last stephen king movie was "dreamcatcher," and whew boy, that was something else.

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:13 (fifteen years ago) link

they aren't even advertising this film as by Stephen King, so maybe they've realized that his name attached to a film = box office death these days.

anthony kyle monday (akmonday), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:20 (fifteen years ago) link

then why "stephen king's kingdom hospital"?

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:31 (fifteen years ago) link

(which i presume he adapted)

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:31 (fifteen years ago) link

"Dreamcatcher" had the worst ending I have ever seen in a film.

"I read the Mist today, and boy was it scary!"

If you can find it, there's a audio dramatization of the Mist available on cassete. The cool thing about it is that it's in three-dimensional sound, which gives the story an extremely spooky effect.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Monday, 23 February 2004 04:32 (fifteen years ago) link

did you see the "original ending" on the dreamcatcher dvd? it was so much better, i have no idea why they chose to go with the alternate.

Emilymv (Emilymv), Monday, 23 February 2004 05:20 (fifteen years ago) link

it was! i liked that in the non-original ending the movie ended with dude saying "jonesy!" though.

s1ocki (slutsky), Monday, 23 February 2004 05:21 (fifteen years ago) link

from the ages of 10-15 he was the C of C.

This is so true. His were the first "adult" books I got into reading, as a kid. (I remember learning about most aspects of sex -- except the nuts and bolts, of course, which my mom taught me -- from Stephen King books.) And I think he made for a pretty good segue into the more usual fiction, when I became a preteen... (Because, y'know, he writes about couples and relationships and people musing about their lives and all that shit... just with monsters.)

And I remember "It," which I read in sixth grade, as being one heck of a great book.

morris pavilion (samjeff), Monday, 23 February 2004 06:07 (fifteen years ago) link

He was always somebody I knew of growing up -- he was that big by the late seventies when I first heard of him thanks to The Shining's adaptation, and he still is, Harlan Ellison called him sui generis and I think he nailed it. But I never really got into him -- it wasn't that I didn't like his work as I read it, I just tended to look elsewhere. But what few short stories I've read of his capture a certain beautiful atmosphere of the physical land itself are gripping, and it occurs to me that some of his greatest strengths aren't the obvious ones.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 23 February 2004 06:11 (fifteen years ago) link

I will throw in a few more cents: those Dark Tower books (the few that I read -- first three or four?) = disappointing dud; the first half of "The Stand" = awesome, but the 2nd half = dud; a few of those "Bachman Books" = Classic. "Eye of the Dragon" (is that what it's called?) = totally classic.

morris pavilion (samjeff), Monday, 23 February 2004 06:24 (fifteen years ago) link

Stand by Me = classic. No question. period. end. over. The Best.

sunjammerr, Monday, 23 February 2004 06:49 (fifteen years ago) link

Oh, duh! Secret Window was in Four Past Midnight. I knew it looked familiar.

I think his stuff in the last decade or so is unbearable nostalgic crap, I still think his first 15 years had a few genuinely great novels (The Dead Zone and Pet Sematary seem to stand up the best) and a boatload of really scary scenes (the Lincoln Tunnel sequence in The Stand, Ben's Hubie Marston nightmare in 'Salem's Lot).

At this point, though, I'd wager that most of his stuff made for better movies, at least when real directors (as opposed to Frank Darabont) were at the helm. Carrie, The Shining, and Christine are all way beyond the source material. And Cujo, The Dead Zone and 'Salem's Lot are all great movies in their own right.

Eric H. (Eric H.), Monday, 23 February 2004 07:34 (fifteen years ago) link

Pet Sematary is a great horror novel, one of the few that has actually creeped me out.

latebloomer (latebloomer), Monday, 23 February 2004 07:37 (fifteen years ago) link

I always liked his short stories. The one with the tiny army men, and the one about the kid's dad with the bad 6-pack of beer and the cats in the wall... I haven't read The Mist since I was in that 10-15 age range. I liked it a lot then. Does it hold up?

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 07:38 (fifteen years ago) link

There's an audio-CD of the Mist that's great. You have to listen to it with headphones, but they did a great job with the surround sound (for ~1993 when I heard it).

At 15, C of C, OTM. The Shining, Christine, The Stand, and It. And Misery.

I stopped caring before the first chapter of Delores Claiborne ended (tho that movie was good).

weather1ngda1eson (Brian), Monday, 23 February 2004 08:58 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, Bachman books - classic. The 4 stories in "Different Seasons" are pretty good. The only one not made into a movie was my favourite - The Long Walk. Basically a near-future-reality-show concept piece. Very simple: 100 people (mostly young) start walking down a highway. If you drop below 4 miles per hour, you get a warning. After the 3rd warning, you are shot dead (the military follow your progress). Last one alive "wins" (you get whatever you want). I almost hope reality TV goes this way someday...

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Monday, 23 February 2004 10:07 (fifteen years ago) link

Yeah, Salem's Lot and The Mist scared the piss out of me as a young'un.

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Monday, 23 February 2004 10:08 (fifteen years ago) link

You could just take them out of the running instead of shooting them. Some people might argue that only the threat of death can provide sufficient motivation to determine the "real" winner. Anyway, 4mph isn't very fast.

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:14 (fifteen years ago) link

Average normal pedestrial walking speed is like 3.375 mph.

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:17 (fifteen years ago) link

Are you getting Different Seasons confused with The Bachman Books, Rob? The Breathing Method is the only story out of DS that wasn't filmed: The Running Man is the only one of BBs that was.

Short stories: great. Dark Tower also good in principle (the first one was only good enough to get me vaguely interested in the seond one, which was great), but if it turns out that I'd have to read all his other books to understand the next volume, I'll be pissed off.

You have to reckon he's jumped the shark when he starts making TV miniseries of all his longer stories, including The Shining. Apparently the film was fine, but not what he was looking for.

And Christine to thread!

Good things about Stephen King:

1. The Shining
2. The Strand was good as I recall though the middle 500 pages dragged a bit
3. He wrote some book about dragons. I forget what it was called but dragons are so awesome.
4. His short stories I think are generally excellent, and much different from his fiction. They're published in the New Yorker and other such magazines quite often. He had an excellent one about highway restroom graffiti.
5. Also he got hit by a truck, which is so crazy. Then he wrote lots of memoirs about being hit by a truck. The one celebrity we have in the whole state of Maine gets mauled by a drunk driver. I thought we should have put his giant creepy head on our state quarter, but apparently that wasn't taken into consideration.

j c (j c), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:45 (fifteen years ago) link

The Stand I mean. The Strand is a bookstore I have to go to this afternoon. Apologies.

j c (j c), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:46 (fifteen years ago) link

least scary element in a bad s.k. novel: killer coke machine in the tommyknockers. course, he was high on coke at the time, so it makes sense. i kinda love the fact that he doesn't remember writing cujo. If you had asked me what the great american novel was 20 years ago i would have said The Stand. I love everything up until the novel he doesn't remember writing. it was touch and go after that. hate when he takes a short story idea and adds an extra 700 pages a la Insomnia.

Eye of the Dragon - about the prince locked up in the tower who steals threads from napkins and weaves them into a rope using the tiny loom in his doll house.

>Are you getting Different Seasons confused with The Bachman Books, Rob
Yes. Yes I am. It's been a while...

>Anyway, 4mph isn't very fast

True. This is the beauty of the contest. The 100 starters can go on for quite a while before the 1st person is shot, which is obviously a sobering event for the remaining 99. Only after about 48 hours things start to go a bit crazy. People start to freak out, as one would expect. Dunno why that story stuck with me for so long - it's a disturbing concept.

-- anthony kyle monday

then why "stephen king's kingdom hospital"?

-- s1ocki

Stephen King signing on to the Kingdom remake is the only thing that got it made; it's been in and out of production for years, so I assume they're tagging it with his name because they aren't confident in it except as a King vehicle (whereas a Johnny Depp movie is a Johnny Depp movie, and you really don't need the Inspector 13 tag.

I haven't seen Dreamcatcher and don't know if I will, but coming so soon after the extended discussion of "trunk novels" in Bag of Bones (which, love it or hate it, is considerably different in scope, tone, and approach), and King's subsequent accident and public difficulties with returning to writing, I half-assumed it was a trunk novel itself. It certainly reads like one.

Tep (ktepi), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:54 (fifteen years ago) link

I recall something about the first story in the Bachman books (Rage) causing a stir because it depicted a fed-up high school kid coming to school with a gun and having a little kill-fest. Apparently it was reading material for a real-life high-school-rage-murder tragedy, but don't recall when/where.

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:56 (fifteen years ago) link

He's great at writing a near-perfect example of a sub-genre. IE Rage is a great "high school shooting" story, The Long Walk is just one beautiful idea, "Survivor Type" is a great cannibal story..

(xpost)

Andrew Farrell (afarrell), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:57 (fifteen years ago) link

"Incidently, 'Rage' is the only novel that King admits he wishes he never wrote. Several similar incidents have occured across the United States, and Rage has been mentioned in connection with them. Considering how sympathetic King is to his protagonist, it's easy to see how disillusioned teens could come to identify with its themes"

Rob Bolton (Rob Bolton), Monday, 23 February 2004 14:58 (fifteen years ago) link

oh, but classic! cuz even though i don't read his new stuff i still dig him. he's such a kook, and he never makes me cringe really. which is more than i can say for most people who have been in the public eye as long as he has. search:Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Rage, Night Shift, The Stand, The Dead Zone, Danse Macabre, Firestarter, Different Seasons, Needful Things, The Dark Half, Pet Semetary, Misery, Skeleton Crew, and Thinner (even if you are older than 10-15)

That Mist dramatization is floating around on soulseek.

Stuart (Stuart), Monday, 23 February 2004 16:16 (fifteen years ago) link

The best Stephen King audio I've heard -- although the person I heard it with says The Mist one is great, too -- is "1408," the haunted hotel room story from Blood and Smoke, his audio-only thing. The first time I heard it was in the middle of the night, in the middle of a ten hour road trip through east Texas and southern Louisiana, which probably added a lot to the overall effect.

Tep (ktepi), Monday, 23 February 2004 16:31 (fifteen years ago) link

the langoliers is really cool too.

i mean the thing with stephen king is he's really good at writing really readable stuff, and he has some neat ideas, but man oh man does he repeat himself. which is kind of interesting in a way, i guess. it's like he applies whatever good idea he has to the basic mold of "writer in maine" and lets it rip.

(obviously that applies more to the novels)

def agreed on cgi literalism but of course movies can do ineffable wrongness just fine if you have the talent for it (which is why you even said mise-en-scene). suspect the people who edited that old lady scene have seen inland empire.

lynch is a good example, his reputation as an arthouse director often overshadows the fact that he's exceptional at creating unsettling or often deeply frightening moments and scenes, and has the ability to maintain an atmosphere of dread over long stretches. the most frightening thing i'd seen in my early years was maybe Twin Peaks, which captures in a very different way a small town full of unexplained terrors, and it's always made me think he could pull off an outstanding SK adaptation.

omar little, Thursday, 9 May 2019 23:43 (six months ago) link

all true and obv the shining gets this in its own way, and probably others if i thought about it. just i feel like the powers that be with greenlighting a big horror film in the 2010s aren't going to grok a pitch that really leans into that stuff. so maybe it's not so much "unfilmable" as "not what decision-makers picture a 'stephen king movie' as being like."

Good morning, how are you, I'm (Doctor Casino), Friday, 10 May 2019 00:00 (six months ago) link

Lynch & king have a shared interest in certain archetypes & Americana and both independently arrived at the idea that the ultimate embodiment of evil is a goofball in a denim jacket, although only Lynch managed to make that actually terrifying. King attempting Lynch gives you daffy shit like his riget remake; I would love for Lynch to attempt king, if only to give ol Steve something to hate even more than kubrick’s shining

One Eye Open, Friday, 14 June 2019 14:45 (four months ago) link

King films are notoriously mostly dogshit, it’s interesting now we’re in this moment of ~respectable~ king films and the decent to dogshit ratio is exactly the same as before except that funless competence is now the peak

The new it and pet sematary are the most egregious, you can feel the cumulative hedging of 500 script iterations by committee creating a product that’s less compelling than the trashy 90s versions

shhh / let peaceful like things (wins), Friday, 14 June 2019 14:49 (four months ago) link

The early King adaptations are still the best, obv. I mean when your work is being adapted by De Palma, Kubrick, and Cronenberg the results are gonna be okay! Gotta give a shout out to The Running Man and Stand By Me too but they are obv different from the usual when it comes to King.

His horror works much better on the page and anyone trying to directly translate it has to devote a lot of time to dialogue about shit weasels and so on.

omar little, Friday, 14 June 2019 14:59 (four months ago) link

Pet Sematary remake was the most pointless thing. The original was fine, nothing mindblowing but better than most King adaptations. I haven't heard anyone say anything complimentary about the new one. What's even the point. Remake the freakin' Lawnmower Man if you absolutely have to go down that road.

Xposts: archive.org is the ticket. There’s a rip of someone’s vhs tape complete with local New Hampshire commercial breaks. File is too large to stream in browser but you can download it.

Last week's "origin" episode was excellent

It really was great, reminded me of "The Queen" episode from last season.
