Jack Ketchum's Death May Be Stephen King's Worst Nightmare

That's saying something given that King is, well, the King of Nightmares. It turns out that he was truly shaken up by the death of the late, great Jack Ketchum, born Dallas Mayr, due to cancer. Not a great way to go and cause for despair and desolation, especially among the kindred. Ketchum died at the age of 71. Too soon.


This Is What Stephen King Had to Say on Twitter:


Seriously Think of That as a Childhood Friend Departing.... Not Just a Colleague


It wasn't like this was a light loss either. We can only imagine of the day when Stephen King departs into the shadows from whence he came. Until that dark day, we watch our masters of the demonic written word grow older into decay.


However, the good news is this: we still have classics from the man himself, Ketchum, from his 1980 debut OFF SEASON to freakish stories like SHE WAKES, COVER, ROAD KILL, ONLY CHILD, LADIES NIGHT, and chilling novellas collected in his published TRIAGE work.

He may be gone, but as Luke Skywalker would say.... "No one is ever really gone."

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!
