Abstract:

From 1976 to the present day, there have been over 45 films adapted from the spine-tingling works of Stephen King. In Stephen King on the Big Screen, Mark Browning addresses the question of why some of the film adaptations of the world?s best-selling author are much more successful than others. By focussing on the theoretical aspect of genre, Browning brings an original approach to familiar films and suggests new ways of viewing them. Although often associated with the macabre, King?s stories form the basis for dozens of narratives, which are clearly not horror from Stand By Me to Hearts in Atl.
