Castle Rock (second season: horror TV).

I always read this and think, great, they’re bringing back Fraggle Rock … then I realise it’s a Stephen King TV series where psychopath Annie Wilkes, Stephen King’s nurse from hell (played by Lizzy Caplan) gets waylaid in the little ‘ol American town of Castle Rock.

It (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Something certainly rings true in the horror thriller ‘It’ that capitalises on that common known fear that clowns are creepy annoyances to those that have an intense phobia towards them. In the case of ‘It’s dastardly powder-faced joyboy or shall we say corrosive killjoy Pennywise the Dancing Clown, he definitely takes the cake in terms of […]

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King (book review).

It’s not often that a writer revisits a character after 36 years but when Stephen King decided he had more to say about little Danny Torrance, hero of ‘The Shining’, many fans, myself included, rejoiced.

Carrie (2013) trailer.

If this was a British movie, at least we could call it Carrie on Screaming. Or bleeding. Or something. Scary stuff. Hopefully for the right reasons, but maybe not. Stephen King, what do you think – write in and let us know?
