World Premiere, 2022 Fantastic Fest
In 1976, Brian de Palma directed Carrie, the first novel and adaptation of Stephen King’s work. Since then, more than 50 directors have adapted the master of horror’s books, in more than 80 films and series, making him now the most adapted author still alive in the world.
King on Screen (2023) is an inside-look into the mind of the Master of Horror and his influence on storytelling and Hollywood, featuring many of the directors who’ve reimagined his work.
“one hell of a trip down Stephen King cinema memory lane… If you like the works of Stephen King or just horror in general then this is a must-see”
—Crockett Houghton, Film Inquiry
