Reading Time: < 1 minute

With IT Chapter 2 in theaters, we decided to cover the King of Horror: Stephen King. With the help of Alex from Frightday.com, we dive into King’s history in writing and how he’s crafted stories that have landed at the most film and TV adapted author currently alive. We talk about his faults as a writer, his experiences, his advice, and ultimately why his stories continue to resonate with us. With The Mist, Pet Sematary, It, The Shining, Salem’s Lot, The Dead Zone, and The Stand all either in their second adaptation or being adapted for the second time, King resonates with us, find out why he always will.
