Hal Leonard Corporation, 01 փտվ, 2014 թ. - 400 էջ
(FAQ). Over the past four decades, the Stephen King movie has become a genre unto itself. The prolific writer's works have spawned well over 100 adaptations for both the big and small screen, ranging from modern classics of horror ( Carrie , The Shining ) to Oscar-nominated fare ( The Shawshank Redemption , The Green Mile ) to unapologetic, B-movie schlock (the King-directed Maximum Overdrive ). The filmmakers to put their stamp on King's material include acclaimed auteurs Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, and Brian De Palma; masters of horror Tobe Hooper, John Carpenter, and George Romero; and popular mainstream directors Rob Reiner, Frank Darabont, and Lawrence Kasdan. Stephen King Films FAQ is the most comprehensive overview of this body of work to date, encompassing well-known hits as well as forgotten obscurities, critical darlings and reviled flops, films that influenced King as well as those that have followed in his footsteps, upcoming and unmade projects, and selected works in other media (including comic books, radio dramas, and the infamous Carrie musical). Author Scott Von Doviak provides background information, analysis, and trivia regarding the various films and television productions, including "Bloodlines" sections on related works and "Deep Cuts" sections collecting additional odd facts and ephemera. All you ever wanted to know about the king of horror onscreen can be found here.
