Is there a contemporary novelist who has had a greater impact on cinema than Stephen King? Since Carrie’s telekinetic meltdown at the prom over four decades ago, his creations have hit screens, both big and small, with unwavering regularity.
Scarcely a year passes without a handful of new interpretations, and now, with over 100 features, shorts and (in name only) sequels in existence, the ‘Stephen King movie’ is a sub-genre in itself.
But while King’s name is synonymous with horror, this season proves his work can make for richly varied, genre-bending cinema.
As 2017 sees an exciting new crop of adaptations including It and The Dark Tower, and King’s 70th birthday, there’s no better time to celebrate and re-evaluate his invaluable contribution to the moving image. All hail the King.
To celebrate the BFI’s tribute to The King of Horror this autumn we’ve put together a fantastic goody bag.
- A collection of Stephen King films on DVDs, a copy of the BFI’s Stephen King artwork PLUS tickets to the BFI’s Stephen King Summit weekend on 23 September - Fans, critics, and experts converge for this landmark event exploring Stephen King on film and TV. #KingForADay
- A bundle of Stephen King’s classic novels, including Carrie, The Shining, The Stand, IT, Misery, Christine, Different Seasons, 11.22.63 and The Gunslinger.
