  • In ‘Late Show’ appearance, Stephen King says it’s time for Sen. Collins to go

    The Portland Press Herald ^ | September 12, 2019 | Scott Thistle
    In an appearance Wednesday on CBS-TV’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Maine horror novelist Stephen King was sharply critical of U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine. King, who has frequently assailed Republican politicians including President Trump on Twitter, told Colbert that he wanted a senator with “a little bit more of a liberal bent.” “She claims to have a liberal bent. But really, that’s not true,” King said, clenching his fist in the air. Colbert held up a photo of a King tweet from a few days earlier that read, “Hey-hey, ho-ho, Susan Collins has got to go.”
  • It: Chapter 2’ Review: History’s Most Incompetent Killer Clown Returns

    No tension, no dread, no sense of peril, no suspense… Pennywise, the most incompetent killer clown in movie history, returns for It: Chapter 2, which isn’t very good, but at least it’s long. Oh, man, is this sucker long; just a few minutes shy of three hours, and you feel every minute of it. Length is not necessarily a problem, not even when it comes to It. Stephen King’s 1986 novel is close to 1200 pages and plenty engrossing. The 1990 television miniseries is over three hours (it was originally broadcast over two nights), and while it’s not scary, Tim...

    VIDEO Perhaps horror novelist Stephen King should consider switching to writing comedy due to his completely laughable streeeeeeeetch of the truth in order to make absurd comparisons between the character of Greg Stillson from "The Dead Zone" to Donald Trump.

    With “Midsommar” earning raves and performing well at the box office, horror has never been hotter. And if, as Justin Chang argued in the Los Angeles Times back in 2017, horror has become the defining genre of the Trump presidency, then Stephen King is its patron saint. The master of horror’s many works have seen renewed interest thanks to a slew of successful adaptations, from the box office record-breaker “It,” to its much-hyped follow-up “It: Chapter Two,” and many more projects currently in the works. And while the master of horror certainly is the king of scary set-ups, he says...

    A year ago, the internet was all aflutter with news that James Wan was producing a remake of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers (which had previously been adapted for TV). That project, obviously, never materialized. Today, however, it would appear that the 20th Century and 21st Century Masters of Horror will once again attempt a collaboration with a remake of Salem’s Lot (originally directed by Tobe Hooper and also produced for TV). The Wrap is also reporting that Gary Dauberman will be writing the script. The writer is one of horror’s hottest properties, linked to Wan as the scribe of all...

    [PHOTO] Like the horror classic called, “A Portrait Of Dorian Gray,” current photos of Stephen King seem to reveal a more and more frightful person. If his hair were a little longer he could look terrifyingly like somebody’s granny. Actually, he maybe looks more like a chimp. [PHOTO] A lot of the things King says, seem as dumb to me as any chimp might say; if chimps could talk. Especially when this overinflated writer of horror, neuroses, and mental illness bloviates on political topics, his utter ignorance rises like a giant sac of hot air. We see hot air balloons...

    In 1976, 16-year-old model Babi Christina Engelhardt embarked on a hidden eight-year affair with the 41–year-old filmmaker that mirrors one of his most famous movies. Now, amid the #MeToo reckoning and Allen’s personal scandals, she looks back with mixed emotions on their relationship and its unequal dynamic. Sixteen, emerald-eyed, blond, an aspiring model with a confident streak and a painful past: Babi Christina Engelhardt had just caught Woody Allen's gaze at legendary New York City power restaurant Elaine's. It was October 1976, and when Engelhardt returned from the ladies' room, she dropped a note on his table with her phone...

    Creepy horror story writer Stephen King promised an electoral horror show for Maine's Republican Senator Susan Collins if she votes to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court justice. King's prediction came in the form of a tweet he posted on Saturday. This comes as no real surprise since King has a track record of really hating Donald Trump.  First a look at his tweet threat followed by a trip into the dark recesses of King's mind.

    Literary fiction, the two most depressing words in the English language, leaves very little space for horror. It’s a claustrophobic, dusty attic in a mansion peopled by “serious” writers. Sure, the holy trinity of Poe, Stoker and Lovecraft is held in high regard, but with the passage of time horror writing stopped being taken seriously. By horror I don’t mean just ghosts and witches, but all that frightens us–loss, deprivation, loneliness, mental instability, self-loathing and personal dissatisfaction. That’s where the writing of Shirley Jackson makes a powerful case for the kind of horror that doesn’t depend on jump scares. Her...

    Stephen King fans are hoping they can get the author of the clown horror story It and 53 other novels to consider running for political office. Among them are the state's most recent former governor, two-term Democrat John Baldacci, who told the Washington Examiner, "Stephen would win any office he decided to run for in Maine." "I would be out there handing out fliers and putting on bumper stickers for him," said Baldacci, who left office after eight years in 2011.
