10 Movies You Didn't Know Were Stephen King Books
Huffington Post - 5 months
By Sarah Jane Abbott | Off the Shelf Guinness Superlatives, the group that awards the Guinness World Records, has named Stephen King the living author with the greatest number of motion picture adaptions of his work. This comes as no surprise, as it seems that nearly everything Stephen King writes is adapted into some sort of film. Many of these adaptions have become iconic horror movies, while some are lesser known. They are based on King's novels, short stories, novellas, and even on original screenplays. In honor of some exciting new adaptions on the horizon, we decided to run down our favorite Stephen King writings that have been adapted for the small and big screen. Go ahead, read the source material for a film you love--you'll be glad you did!   Night Shift "Children of the Corn," a short story from the collection NIGHT SHIFT, has spawned an ongoing horror franchise with sequel after sequel. The story follows a couple who accidentally hit a boy while driving throug ...

Hemlock Grove Will Continue Its Reign of Terror on Netflix
Boom Tron - over 3 years
It’s a good time to be a Netflix Original Series. I have yet to hear of one of Netflix’s new shows not getting a second season and now Hemlock Grove is the latest to reach the age of two. Somewhere out there Eli Roth is jumping up and down, squeals of glee bouncing off the walls of his horror memorabilia-filled mansion. The horror lover is an executive producer of the series, along with Brian McGreevy, Lee Shipman, Eric Newman and Michael Connolly, and is excited about the future of Hemlock Grove, saying “Season One was just a warm up for what we have in store for season two.” According to Deadline, Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes, which is a curious number. The first season consisted of 13 episodes, so why the decrease going into the second? It’s no secret Hemlock Grove didn’t exactly wow critics. But this is a genre show so impressing everyone is virtually impossible. Plus, when the first season launched on April 19, it had a very strong viewer count. It even scored a bigger ...

Supernatural Comic Series 'Locke & Key' Getting Big-Screen Adaptation
MTV News - over 3 years
Supernatural comic book series "Locke & Key" was being eyed for a TV adaptation, but word from THR indicates the project is now headed to the big screen. Joe Hill — who also happens to be Stephen King's son and just released a new novel, "NOS4A2" — wrote the series, which centers on the Locke children. After their father is brutally murdered, the family moves into their ancestral home, the Keyhouse. They discover the house contains secrets and magical keys that unlock incredible powers. But there is a dark force lurking there that wants the family to open a door that could destroy everything good in their world. Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, and Bobby Cohen will produce the adaptation with Ted Adams, CEO and publisher of IDW Publishing, the company behind the comic book. People like Steven Spielberg have been fighting to get the project adapted for the past several years. A TV pilot was created, with Nick Stahl ("Carnivàle") and Miranda Otto ("The Lord of the Rings") starring ...

'Hemlock Grove': Darkness Is Coming
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
At the foot of a sweeping grand staircase in the foyer of an imposing early 20th century mansion, Famke Janssen is stoically explaining what's going to happen next to Bill Skarsgard as he fights back tears. The two are filming a scene of "Hemlock Grove," the epic new Netflix series helmed by horror-master Eli Roth. The show is based on Brian McGreevy's novel of the same name, and follows two teenage boys (Skarsgard and "Degrassi" alum Landon Liboiron) at the center of a murder mystery in a creepy small town full of supernatural elements. Its horror-esque approach and broad mix of supernatural beings may sound a lot like "True Blood" (which stars Skarsgard's older brother Alexander), but "Hemlock" is carving its own path. "We started by casting an entirely different Skarsgard," jokes McGreevy, who serves as an executive producer on the show. Janssen plays Skarsgard's mother, the matriarch of the wealthy and powerful Godfrey family. Dougray Scott is her husband, Norma ...

Peep EXCLUSIVE Red-Band Trailer For 'Hemlock Grove'
MTV News - almost 4 years
After Netflix's first, cerebral, sardonic foray into original programming with the political thriller "House of Cards," we don't know quite what we were expecting from their second binge-watch-ready direct-to-web series—more dialogue-driven drama, maybe, or a new riff on Kevin Spacey's smug/fabulous monologuing straight into the camera? But whatever our expectations, our EXCLUSIVE red-band trailer for "Hemlock Grove" has exceeded them, and then some, to the point where we cannot actually form coherent sentences due to its lingering effects; all we've got is a general sense of unbridled anticipation plus some fragmented mumbling about werewolves and worms and what unsettling thing may or may not be hiding inside Bill Skarsgård's pants. And if that doesn't make sense to you, don't worry. IT WILL. This first look at the supernatural horror of "Hemlock Grove" is a bloody, sexy, extravagantly over-the-top mess that should be watched with caution by anyone with a weak constituti ...

Theme Park Bits: Eli Roth to Launch Goretorium, Disney Readies The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, Universal Studios Pushes Into Moscow
Film - almost 5 years
The filmmaker who brought us Hostel is now, ironically enough, getting into the tourism game himself. Eli Roth’s Goretorium, a haunted house, is scheduled to open September 27 at the corner of the Strip (a.k.a. Las Vegas Boulevard) and Harmon Avenue in Las Vegas. Though the timing is expected to help the Goretorium tap into the Halloween industry, the multi-level attraction will remain open all year round. Roth was previously behind the popular Hostel-themed maze at Universal Studios Hollywood last year. Roth expressed his hope that the new attraction would become “the world mecca for horror fans,” and talked up the Goretorium’s terrors. “Horror fans know that with my name on it, it won’t be for little kids,” he said. “They know it will be a very scary experience.” If all goes well, the Las Vegas Goretorium could be the first of many. Roth says that he’s already received offers to franchise the Goretorium to locations in London, New York, and Tokyo. [Deadline] After the jump, Cap ...
