Tnx Summer!

Serendipitous Anachronisms

sbmDear Readers, this post is for “The Stephen King Blogathon” aka “The Halloween Kingathon” which runs throughout October. Darren at Movie Reviews 101 and Rob at Movie Rob co-host the event, be sure to visit their sites for full event festivities and read along as they cover 62 Stephen King films!

Like most horror fans, I read a lot of Stephen King books growing up. My favorites are his Castle Rock stories. Castle Rock is a fictional area where his best stories occur: Needful Things, Cujo, The Dark Half, It, Salem’s Lot, Carrie, Pet Sematary all happen in the Castle Rock area.

One of King’s most beloved films is Stand By Me.

Stand By Me is based on King’s novella The Body and was written under a pseudonym “Richard Bachman”.

Upon hearing of the death of a childhood friend, Chris Chambers (River Phoenix), a writer Gordon LaChance (Richard Dreyfus) reminisces about his childhood.
