Stephen King on the Big Screen PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Stephen King on the Big Screen free pdf From 1976 to the present day, there have been over 45 films adapted from the spine-tingling works of Stephen King. Bringing detailed analysis of adaptations and literature together, Browning examines these films in their own right and suggests why they succeeded in scaring viewers, as well as why they often fail. The book rejects previous attempts to make the films and books fit rigid categories, but examines what makes a written or visual text successful at evoking fear and draws conclusions from examples. "Stephen King on the Big Screen" will appeal to readers and scholars with an interest in the wide range of directors discussed, including David Cronenberg, George A. Romero and Stanley Kubrick, and gothic horror genres on screen and in literature.
