Stephen King Films FAQ: All That's Left to Know about the King of Horror on Film -- Scott Von Doviak

Stephen King Films FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the King of Horror on Film
This is an amazing compendium of information about the films based on the work of Stephen King, including, of course, the films that spun off the films based on King's work.  I mean, when it comes to things like Children of the Corn, this book has it covered.  Oh, sure, it covers the big-time stuff, too.  The Shining is here.  Everything is here.  And it's not even just movies. The Rock Bottom Remainders are covered.  Plus you get quotable quotes, a list of King's cameos, plenty of info on other movies (the first 40 or so pages cover "precursors and influences"), and lots more.  

And it's not just the information that matters.  Von Doviak writes well, he can be funny, and he's opinionated.  If you like movies based on King's work, or if you hate them, this is the book for you.  It really does have everything, and it's fun to read.  Check it out.
