    ... The Dark Tower is taking a serious drubbing, and many diehard King fans are similarly displeased with how the movie turned out. But let’s be honest, this isn’t exactly the first film adaptation of a Stephen King book to lay an egg. Children of the Corn, anyone? Maximum Overdrive? The Lawnmower Man? Fortunately, King’s cinematic oeuvre is chockablock with movies that are actually good. If you were let down by The Dark Tower – or you plan to give it a miss entirely – here are seven great Stephen King movies that you can stream or digitally rent from...

    President Donald Trump has apparently blocked supermodel Chrissy Teigen on Twitter after being on the receiving end of what she described as “9 years of hating” him. “After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him ‘lol no one likes you’ was the straw,” Teigen tweeted Tuesday with a photo of a screenshot showing her being blocked from President Trump’s account.

    Stephen King is considered something of an expert when it comes to horror, but it seems that, for the author of It, nothing is scarier than Donald Trump. Except for maybe his supporters. In an interview with the Rolling Stone, King was candidly political, expressing dismay over the rise of Trump, as well as disappointment in the electorate that catapulted the former reality television star and real estate mogul into the Republican candidacy for president. ““I am very disappointed in the country. I think that he’s sort of the last stand of a sort of American male who feels like...

    Donald J. Trump has been working to mend fences with many of his detractors, but among literary luminaries it is looking like it will be a tough sell. A group of more than 400 writers, including big names such as Stephen King, David Eggers, Amy Tan, Junot Díaz and Cheryl Strayed, released an online petition on Tuesday to express their opposition to Mr. Trump’s candidacy on the grounds that he is appealing to the darkest elements in American society. “The rise of a political candidate who deliberately appeals to the basest and most violent elements in society, who encourages aggression...

    This is in some respects a political show, and we are in the throes of hands-down the most insane presidential race in history. What do you make of it, and more specifically, of the rise of Donald Trump? It seems to me that, given the relentless 24-hour news cycle, it was only a matter of time before we had a media-savvy reality star ascend to this perch. Man, I don't know! Trump leaves me speechless. When he came down that escalator to announce that he was going to run for president, I thought to myself that it was a smart...

    According to horror master Stephen King, Donald Trump is actually not all that scary compared to other options running for president of the United States. King believes that Ted Cruz winning the election is the "scarier" of the two options since "Cruz is a fundamentalist Christian," which King compares to an Islamic Imam....

    US President Barack Obama called former President Shimon Peres over the weekend to wish him well, after Peres suffered a heart attack. In the conversation, Obama thanked Peres for their long friendship, according to a press release on Saturday night from Peres's office. "I was lucky to be treated by a dedicated medical team that worked around the clock, not only to open and improve my artery but to improve my heart. I left hospital stronger than I entered," said Peres in the phone call. He also lauded Obama for sealing the controversial Iran nuclear deal, even as it has...

The pair say Nicholson took naps on the floor between scenes to stay in character, talked about missing his daughter Jennifer from his first marriage to Sandra Knight and appeared to be a more devoted family man than his public image ever personified. Lisa, who today is a lawyer and Louise, a published scientist, both 46, also revealed their role in the hit flick did more harm than good to their fledgling acting careers. They...

    “Until responsible gun owners support responsible gun control laws, innocent blood will continue to flow. How many times must we see this?” Mr. King, who has openly supported banning semiautomatic weapons, tweeted to his 743,000 followers Thursday evening. “Too many closed minds on gun control. Worse, far too many PROUDLY closed minds. Meanwhile, the American shooting gallery remains open,” he wrote. “According to Bloomberg Business, gun deaths will exceed traffic fatalities in America this year. Can’t put a seatbelt on a semi-automatic.”

    Liberal novelist Stephen King regrets asserting that if you don't learn how to read, you'll end up in "the Army, Iraq." The comment, widely seen as a shot at the military, was first publicized six years ago on NewsBusters. In an interview with the Huffington Post, King was asked if he stood by the remarks. The author lamented, "No. That was just a case of misspeaking and also having one of those brain cramps that you realize that you're no longer living in the world that you grew up in...If I could take one remark back, that would be the...

    Dennis Rader, the Kansas serial killer known as the "BTK killer," told a Wichita newspaper that he's cooperating with Katherine Ramsland, an author writing a book about his crimes. Rader murdered 10 people in the Wichita area from 1974 to 1991, and his victims ranged in ages from 9 to 62. He gave himself the nickname "BTK," which he said stood for "bind, torture, kill." Rader is serving 10 consecutive life sentences for the slayings, and won't be eligible for parole until 2180. In a letter to Wichita reporter Roy Wenzl, Rader claims he's cooperating with the book project in...

If social media is to be believed, there is a man dressed as a clown wandering around Staten Island at night. Witnesses describe him as bald, wearing a trademark blue and yellow clown suit, holding balloons and OH MY GOD LOOK AT THIS PICTURE. The clown, which has reportedly been spotted hanging around the Grasmere and Richmond Valley train stations according to the SI Advance, has been snapped three times and uploaded to Twitter and Instagram, providing both internet buzz and...

    Ron Howard and Brian Grazer‘s original plan for adapting Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower series was to do it as a series of movies bridged by a few seasons of TV. It always struck me as ambitious to the point of arrogance, while also rich in potential and, actually, quite exciting. But I wasn’t surprised when both Universal and Warner Bros. turned them down. Since then, they managed to lock a deal with MRC to produce a single film, with the possibility of more if it turns out to be a hit. That’s the way these things usually go, of...

    PORTLAND, Maine — Stephen King and his wife have made a donation to a Maine group advocating for stricter gun control laws. King says the gift was "five figures" but doesn't want to say more about it because "charity's supposed to be a private thing." The Coalition for a Safer Maine says King is a gun owner and a defender of the Second Amendment who supports expanded background checks on gun sales and a ban on the sale of high-capacity ammunition magazines.....

So wrote horror writer Stephen King in a Kindle essay Friday entitled "Guns."
