It's that time of year to start watching horror movies (though to me it's always that time of year), so why not make some serious cash while doing it.
By serious cash, I mean you can make $1300 just by watching 13 horror movies by Halloween...
"It Chapter Two" is officially out in theaters.
Of course, I saw it opening day. Then, I saw it a second time (because sure, I had other friends who wanted to go). And my sentiments held true after a second viewing: Bill Hader was the absolute best part of "It Chapter Two"...
It is the adrenaline rush the box office sorely needed after a summer that could accurately be described as “pretty bad” — the new take on Stephen King’s doorstop of a novel is the best horror opening ever, the highest single-day box office for an R-rated movie, the lowest-budgeted movie to gross over $100 million in its opening weekend, and now it’s the biggest opening for a September movie in history.
Stephen King adaptations are a dime a dozen these days (almost literally; rights to his books are famously cheap), but a good Stephen King adaptation, like a properly cooked steak or a movie where Harrison Ford is actually awake, is exceedingly rare. Of the two adaptations of beloved King novels released this year, the idea that IT might be the superior of the pair seemed laughable a few months ago. IT is better than The Dark Tower in every conceivable way, but beyond the inevitable comparison, it’s just really good. Scary good, even.
There's always plenty of Stephen King adaptations in the works, but here's one based on a story you might not be as familiar with -- and as a bonus, King himself wrote the screenplay. 'A Good Marriage' appears to examine a marriage through King's grisly lens, and the suburbs are looking pretty deadly.
