I am putting the finishing touches on a big report into horror movies, due for release in the coming months. One of the many things I looked at was horror adaptations and so I thought it would be fun to share a small part of what I found as it’s become rather topical.
A new adaptation of Stephen King’s It is currently doing great business in cinemas worldwide, leading Warner Brothers to start work on a sequel, entitled Chapter One. Details are still few and far between, but as the current film only adapted half of the original novel, the plot and characters are already common knowledge.
Excitement for the sequel is high, but the history of Stephen King adaptations contains an ominous warning.
