If anyone knows about horror films, it’s Stephen King. Many of his novels have been brought to the big screen, and he’s even penned a few screenplays himself. When it comes to his thoughts on these spooky films, he’s ready to tell you this fall on Eli Roth’s new show.

King Of The World

Horror movie icon Eli Roth is slated to release his new docuseries AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror. As a guest on the show, King wasted no time to talk about the art of horror films.

One major thing that scared him as a child was the 1954 classic Creature from the Black Lagoon which later became a major influence for him. In his 1986 book It, Pennywise turns into Gill-Man to take out his next victim. For King, the one thing that freaked him out was the movie poster. “The girl in the white bathing suit and the creature is right below her reaching up by not quite touching her foot,” he said.

One Scary Panel

King will be joining a long list of horror film experts for Eli Roth’s new series. Aside from the author, Rob Zombie, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Jason Blum will join the fray.

Universal Pictures

The series will go through the history of horror films with discussions on classics like The Shining and Psycho. The first episode airs on Sunday, October 14.

Keeping The Screams Alive

Several of King’s works are still being brought to life today. 2019 will see the theatrical releases of In the Tall GrassPet Sematary, and It: Chapter Two. In 2020, Doctor Sleep, which is the sequel to The Shining, will be released.

Warner Bros.

On the TV front, season two of Mr. Mercedes is currently airing on Audience. This summer, Hulu delivered their second King adaptation with Castle Rock. The show was recently renewed for a second season. TV shows based on The Stand and The Dark Tower are also in the works.
