The Films of Stephen King
From Carrie to Secret Window
|Publication Date||February 2008|
|Formats||Ebook (PDF) Hardcover Paperback Ebook (EPUB)|
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. The individual chapters, written by cinema, television, and cultural studies scholars, examine 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.
