Have you seen all the movies based on Stephen King’s writings five times each? Own the DVD releases of the various television miniseries? Think you know every last detail about every last Children of the Corn sequel? With The Illustrated Stephen King Movie Trivia Book, you can test yourself and your horror-loving friends about both the big-screen and small-screen adaptations of your favorite author’s works.
Arranged by movie, starting with 1977’s Carrie and going all the way through 2011’s Bag of Bones, authors Brian James Freeman, Hans Åke Lilja, and Kevin Quigley test you on some of the most trivial details, from the name of Captain Hollister’s secretary in Firestarter to the type of soft drink used to drug Wharton in The Green Mile. There are special sections for sequels, for King as an actor, and for his “Dollar Babies.” The most prolific franchise, Children of the Corn’s six “awful” sequels, also has its own segment near the end of the volume.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Glenn Chadbourne’s fantastic illustrations throughout the book. The artist’s renditions of Church and Pennywise are a couple of my favorites in this book.
This book is recommended without reservation for horror movie buffs, especially those who specialize in Stephen King cinema.
