It's tempting to think of this book as having been intentionally made with a visual media release in mind. King always likes to say he wrote it as a screenplay because that's the format the story insisted upon. After reading this work, I can't help but feel King was right. It's difficult to imagine this story in any other format. A charismatic lead, a truly terrifying villain, and an engaging supporting cast make this one a lovely read. 4/5

When we lived in NJ we used to watch this every year during the first snow. Now that we live in SC, we just wait for a cold night! #RIPMartha #borninsincomeonin #losersclub

Liatrek Man I love this one! It‘s so intense I was excited when it showed up on Hulu. 1y
BarkingMadRead @Liatrek it‘s on Hulu?!? That‘s good to know. We have the DVD and I always worry that it will get scratched up! 1y

A devastating story, and one that manages to beautifully blend human and supernatural horror.

Found at goodwill. Nabbed for my sister's collection. The weird part is that I was just talking about this movie the other day.

W is for Weather. Stephen King uses natural elements from weather patterns in several of his stories in order to add a greater level of suspense. Imagine IT without the rains, Revival without the lightning storms, or The Shining without a blizzard, and you'd have a completely different story. King's masterful use of things we can relate to, like the weather, is just one of the many reasons his books are timeless.

AmyG Good one. 6y
GarthRanzz I almost picked up a copy of this last weekend. It‘s one I don‘t have and can‘t remember if I‘ve read it or only seen the miniseries. 6y
Sweettartlaura This is one of my favorite films/miniseries of his. I loved the premise - the idea of how towns full of people just disappear. And the performances were great. Linoge is scary AF😱. And the townspeople... well, they never fail to disappoint 😕 (edited) 6y

Another pick for #scaresyou #stephenking17

This villain - Linoge (sp?) - & this scenario - do we stand together? Fight together? Die together? Or do we get scattered by evil? King is a MASTER at heightening these moments, when we really see into our neighbors' hearts, when we have to choose how we want to live, & how we want to die.

EsquireGirl @Sweettartlaura yes his name is Linoge. I remember because there is a line in there about rearranging the letters of his name spells Legion as in the quote from the Bible by the demon who says it's name is Legion "because we are many". That line freaked me out for some reason! 7y
Sweettartlaura @EsquireGirl Me too😱 I remember that line, but since I only watched the mini-series (never read the teleplay😮), I wasn't quite sure of the spelling. And what that line made me think was that evil is as eternal as God 😱. The whole thing is just scary from beginning to end. 7y

Pics of school after our storm. We have another one coming tomorrow with up to a foot more forecast. We may have to resort to tunnels in order to get around.

One of my favourite things about Stephen King novels: When they're #setinasmalltown and include the community. I love how he sets up so many different side-characters, their quirks, interests and relationships with each other...and how it derails once the supernatural hits. #photoadaynov16
