This week's Macabre Monday challenge at HDH is
Stephen King Knightmares.
Now at first glance, this should have been an easy challenge.
Stephen King has tons of films and stories, and even TV shows to
I have read some of his books, but most of them are a bit
too wordy for me. I finished Gerald's Game, Misery, Cujo,
Salem's Lots, Monkey Shines and Skeleton Crew.
I prefer his short stories over his novels any day.
I only got about 300 pages into IT, when I threw in the towel
and watched the movie instead of finishing the book.
I really wanted to make something in homage to Children of the Corn,
but nothing was coming together.
So I opted for a favorite film from my teen years,
Cat's Eye from 1985.
I think this little troll dude was my favorite part/story of the entire film.
He was creepy and kinda cute, in a breath sucking kind of way.
I went with the "every breath you take" quote, since it was the song
playing on the turntable when our little troll friend hit the wall
in Drew's room.
I finally realized I may have been having a hard time with this challenge
because Stephen King was my Mom's favorite author.
She had all his books in hardback, and would read every night
before she went to bed.
I need to request some of her books from my Dad.
I just may finish IT after all.
