Over seventy-five films have been made based either on Stephen King narratives or screen/teleplay scripts that King himself authored, yet this body of work has received very little scholarly attention. The Films of Stephen King is the first collection of essays assembled on the cinematic adaptations of Stephen King. Written by cinema, television, and cultural studies scholars, this work examines the most important films from the King canon, from Carrie to The Shining to The Shawshank Redemption. Contributors focus on the most intriguing aspects of these movies - race, gender, and technology - and draw conclusions on their socio-political relevance.
