The horror writer and his son are having quite the big bounce in Hollywood paydays, and this June 2 release adds to that and yet barely scratches the surface in the back catalog of Stephen King writing that could be filmed, streamed or podcast.

Those of us who lived through earlier waves of Steven King adaptations are entitled to wonder if and when this one will crest and ebb.
With horror held in such high regards these days it’s not likely he’ll be perceived as box office poison. But he’s had his in and out years.
This looks fairly conventional.
