The three Carrie movies side-by-side
February 26th, 2018 under Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]

Even though the 1976 version of Carrie with Sissy Spaceck was perfect that did not stop Hollywood from remaking it not once but two more times. The second version hit the airwaves in 2002 and then 9 years later it was back on the big screen again.

Matt Skuta brilliantly combined the three films in a nearly 13 minute video to show us how alike and different the three versions are. As technology advanced, you would think it would get scarier. It did not. The first one still looks like the best of the trio. The last one was by far the worst. There was nothing about it that made me want to reach my arm out from the ground to see it again. When it comes to the original, I have seen it more times than Carrie has fingers on both of her hands. It really holds up well.

Now, I have to find the TV movie version because I think Rena Sofer looks like she was a better coach than Betty Buckley. Sorry Miss Buckley.


Castle Rock’s trailer has the most accurate tagline!
October 8th, 2017 under Hulu, Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]

Hulu just released the first look at Stephen King’s series based on his beloved characters all living in one town, Castle Rock.

In the trailer, I saw references to The Green Mile, It, Cujo, Christine and Carrie, but the latter one is only because it was Carrie herself, Sissy Spacek. Anyways when a voice is finally heard in the promo, it says, “You have no idea what is happening here. Do you?” I was like you totally read my mind because I have absolutely no idea what is happening here. Yet, I cannot wait to see it.


Bill Skarsgård’s smile is creepier without the It makeup
September 12th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]

Bill Skarsgård is playing Pennywise in the It remake, and there is only so much scary the makeup department could make him. Some of it he needed to do himself and the most important thing was that creepy smile which is finishing touch for the frightening clown. A smile, he told Conan O’Brien, he learned from his older brother when he was just 10 years old and he would use it torture his younger brother. Seventeen years later that trick helped to land him a role that will haunt our nightmares as much as it did his little bro.

Talking about family, Bill Skarsgård looks more like Tim Curry’s (the actor who played him in the original movie) son than his own dad Stellan Skarsgård. What do you think?


Words of Wizdumb from Stephen King!
May 12th, 2017 under Stephen King, Words of Wizdumb. [ Comments: none ]

For decades, Stephen King’s words have given us nightmares, but yesterday his words of wizdumb were very sweet. The Horror novelist Tweeted, “I felt really depressed today, so I ate a whole bunch of chocolate. It cheered me up quite a lot. Chocolate seems to be the answer.” As woman, I totally agree with him. Is there anything chocolate isn’t the answer to? Bad day, eat chocolate. Messed up, give chocolate. Hungry, eat chocolate. Need to eat something healthy, down some dark chocolate. Reading a King book all alone on a dark rainy night, call someone special over and tell them to bring chocolate. Is there any thing chocolate isn’t good for? Besides our waists?


It vs It
April 1st, 2017 under Stephen King. [ Comments: none ]

Matt Skuta took the scenes from the 1990 movie It and compared them to the ones in the updated version of It.

When I saw the 2017 trailer, I had no temptation to see it because I think that CGI ruins Horror movie remakes. But now that I have seen that the newer version is loyal to the original one, I kind of want to see it.

What do you think seeing them top to bottom like that?

When it comes to Skuta, my clown mask is off to you because that was brilliant editing.
