Stephen King Alyssa Sutherland

Our first look at the forthcoming series adaptation of Stephen King's popular novella 'The Mist' has finally arrived in the form of a gripping trailer for Spike TV. The 10 episode first season is set to air this summer, but this isn't just about a small town grocery store anymore.

Created by Danish filmmaker Christian Torpe ('Rita', 'Silent Heart'), who also directs the first episode alongside Adam Bernstein, this new adaptation of 'The Mist' follows the lives of various people within a terror-struck small town. It comes ten years after the critically acclaimed Frank Darabont film adaptation was released starring Marcia Gay Harden, Toby Jones and Thomas Jane.

The Trailer For Stephen King's 'IT' Is As Terrifying As It Is Exciting!


Stephen King

Stephen King's critically-acclaimed horror novel 'IT' has been terrifying readers for decades now, and despite once getting a small screen live adaptation in 1990, which starred Tim Curry as the creepy clown Pennywise, this year's movie release will serve as the first time 'IT' has hit the movie theatre.

This time round, former 'Hemlock Grove' actor Bill Skarsgård will be donning the makeup and handing out the red balloons as Pennywise, luring children to their death and making sure the residents of Derry, Maine don't get much sleep.

What To Expect From Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' [Pictures]


Stephen King Idris Elba Matthew Mcconaughey

The forthcoming adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' series is coming this summer starring Matthew Mcconaughey and Idris Elba, but it's not your regular kind of adaptation. The movie will act as something of a sequel to the book series, with some familiar characters and an all new story.

We really hope this idea of continuing a novel saga in film catches on - 'Harry Potter' is kind of halfway there. 'The Dark Tower' continues on from events in the seventh and final book of Stephen King's saga of the same name (though a prequel was released in 2012 entitled 'The Dark Tower: The Wind Through the Keyhole' that was meant to become the fifth novel); a series which he has more than once described as his magnum opus.

Who Should Play Pennywise In Stephen King's 'It' Reboot?


Stephen King Jim Carrey Jared Leto

A re-boot for one of the scariest Stephen King films ever released, 'It', is finally coming next year with Andrés Muscietti named as director. However, there's no-one yet attached to the lead villain role of evil shape-shifting clown Pennywise. So who do you think should play him?

Will Poulter from 'The Revenant' was originally in talks for the part, but news has emerged that he has backed out. There's no word yet on whether or not Tim Curry will reprise the role, though it's definitely unlikely as much as we'd love to see him back. Let's look at the specs: Pennywise has his insane laugh, wide smile, gruff voice and is largely humorous. So who could rock those traits the best?

'Green Room' Tops Our List Of 2016's Most Exciting Horrors


Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

Stephen King's 'It' Gets A Reboot For 2017


Stephen King

There's a lot of Stephen King to look forward to over the next few months; his horror tales consistently make good movies, so much so that sometimes you gotta make them again. Pennywise the evil clown is returning next year in a re-boot of 'It'.

Stephen KingStephen King's 'It' returns

Many might confess that the last Stephen King character they want to see again is Pennywise; once was enough for a lifetime of nightmares. Nonetheless, this 1990 Primetime Emmy winner is such a popular fear flick that it's being given a modern makeover - we just wonder how they're going to improve on the vision of terror that is that darned clown. It's probably a fact that nobody has booked a clown for their kid's birthday since 1990. Probably.

The Witch And 9 More Epic Occult Horror Films


Stephen King Gemma Arterton Christopher Lee Sam Raimi Mia Farrow

The directorial feature debut of Robert Eggers has put the scariness back into witch culture with a critically-acclaimed slow-burning horror that even had Stephen King terrified. 'The Witch' doesn't rely on jumpy moments or grotesque imagery, merely unsettling scenery and a menacing film score. It's a precious release for the horror genre, because genuinely enjoyable (and scary) occult-based films are very few and far between.

We've racked our brains to think of ten of the best witch horrors of all time:

Idris Elba Rumoured For Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower' Movie Adaptation


Idris Elba Matthew Mcconaughey Stephen King

Idris Elba is being lined up as the leading actor in the hugely anticipated movie adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Dark Tower’.

The British star, 42, is due to play the part of gunslinger Roland Deschain, who squares off against the series’ villain, The Man In Black, played by Matthew Mcconaughey who had previously expressed interest in playing both roles, according to Deadline.

A big screen adaptation of King’s epic series of novels has been rumoured for a long time, but the new project’s backers Sony are reportedly going to be more ambitious than settling for just a movie, floating the idea of a TV series set in the same fictional universe.

The Hotel That Inspired 'The Shining' To Become World's First Horror Museum


The Shining Jack Nicholson Elijah Wood Simon Pegg Stephen King

The owners of the iconic Stanley Hotel in Colorado – better known as The Overlook Hotel in the classic horror novel 'The Shining' – are planning to open the world’s first horror-themed museum inside the building, according to a new report.

Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 classic movie, starring Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duval, based on Stephen King's book, was inspired by the vast hotel. Though the interior of the hotel you see in the movie itself was constructed in Elstree Studios in Britain, and the exterior shots are of the Timberline Lodge in Oregon, the Stanley Hotel in Colorado was the inspiration that King used for his 1977 novel.
