60 Days of Stephen King Movies

I’ve been woefully absent from this blog in recent months. And while the reason is good (my other blog?is growing like crazy), I wanted to do another fun horror centric project this summer. As some of you may know this blog originally started when I decided to watch and review 365 horror flicks over the course of a year. I completed that challenge back in March of 2011 and quite frankly was burned out on reviewing. I was like a fat kid who got loose in a cake store or a frat guy and a gallon of Southern Comfort, I had so much that I almost never wanted to touch the stuff again. But eff that. I wanna get puke sick on horror again.

Enter Stephen King and the insane amount of movies based on his literature.

Going back to my blog roots, I am going to watch and review as many Stephen King based movies thru August 31st as humanly possible. So,?I made a list of all the Stephen King stuff I own. It’s 64 movies. I am going to start old and work my to the new. First review will be posted on July 1st.

Happy First Day Of Summer, Bitches!

    Can’t wait! Unfortunately a great many of King’s films don’t make a successful transition from book to film, but the one’s that do are classics. I’m interested to read your take.
