A QUIET PLACE Screenwriters Penning the Adaptation of Stephen King's THE BOOGEYMAN

We know. You're not surprised. But call me surprised that the very people who will be bringing Stephen King's short story to life are the same masterminds behind the most recent onslaught of the senses (at least four senses, anyway), A QUIET PLACE. What are the chances....

THE BOOGEYMAN Was Simply a Short Story Stephen King Wrote for His Anthology NIGHT SHIFT Back in the Day



And now we're going to see it on the big screen -- as a motion picture. Lovely.

The premise is easy enough: a man recently loses all his children to a creature lurking in the closet. So, the Boogeyman.

The interesting thing about this is it's the eleventh short story of Stephen King to be adapted into film. That's impressive. It's not terribly easy adapting a short story into a film as you see, for example, 1408 (the short story) is a whole lot different from 1408 (the film). A lot of fleshing out involved.

My Worry Is That This May Be a Massive Misfire for the Makers of A QUIET PLACE


As the boogeyman has been quite the staple of horror stories for quite some time now. We had that lackluster 2005 film of essentially the same title, and then of course who can top SINISTER? Perhaps Stephen King's short story can.

We shall see. I'm game.

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

WHAT'S TRENDING RIGHT NOW!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
