Six King’s Crowning
Fans are weird and know too much about how to cripple authors. Misery is great too.
The Mist is a film that should’ve been a thousand times more popular. I’ve never heard louder cheers in an audience than when Toby Jones puts a bullet through the religious nut’s head.
You know something’s wrong when John Travolta is laughing at you. Sissy Spacek did, and got her revenge by burning down a gymnasium with everyone in it. Overkill? Possibly.
Stephen King’s second book and Tobe Hooper’s first big TV movie. This was a few years before Tobe Hooper was replaced by a man intent on destroying the legacy of Tobe Hooper, who was also named Tobe Hooper.
Sure, it’s a great movie. It’s Kubrick. That man took shits, (long, well-crafted shits, with insane amounts of takes) and flushed greatness. But it also started one of the most hackneyed jokes of all time. “Here’s (insert name here. Usually Johnny.)”
I have nothing to say about the movie. But Stephen King’s narration of the trailer is hilarious. So you should just watch that. Trust me, you’re not missing much.
