Few writers have managed to affect the cinema as much as Stephen King. From the '70s until today, almost all of his novels have been brought to the big screen or television, an indication of King's extraordinary ability to tell stories that are just made to be transformed into images. Directors like Brian De Palma, Stanley Kubrick, Rob Reiner and Frank Darabont have ventured into adaptations of King's writings, in some cases obtaining resounding success.
Guide to the Cinema of Stephen King recounts the genesis of all the films (or TV series) adapted from King's works and analyzes them from the point of view of a film critic. From "Carrie" to "The Shining", on through "It" and "Misery", up to the recent television series "Under the Dome", this book is a veritable bible for fans who will find anecdotes, interesting facts, and detailed critical analysis of Kingian films.
