Stephen King was my first real entrance into the world of horror. When I was in ninth grade, I convinced my English teacher to let me read The Stand for my assigned reading, even though it wasn’t “AP-approved.” My powers of persuasion may rival those of Randall Flagg, but I digress.
Joan Allen will star in the King adaptation (adapted by the master himself) of A Good Marriage. The story was a part of King’s recent collection Full Dark, No Stars. The tale finds a woman alone in her home while her husband of twenty years is away on business. While searching for batteries in the garage, she discovers a wooden box hidden under the work bench. What she finds is “a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.”
Full Dark, No Stars currently sits on my list of books to read, in a queue behind many others (I think I may have a problem), but I may just have to move this one up a bit, because filming will begin sometime in October.
