Cycle Of The Werewolf (The Novella) Versus Silver Bullet (The Film)



Stephen King has a body of work that is ripe for adaptation. Over the decades many of his short stories and novels have been adapted into everything from feature films, television miniseries and even comic books. Depending on their faithfulness to the source material, those adaptations run the gauntlet of being surprisingly good to painfully bad. But what about those adaptations penned by the man himself? There are only a few examples of King being in charge of transferring his work from one medium to another and we here at the Versus Machine are taking advantage of that! Get ready for Cycle Of The Werewolf (the 1983 novella) VERSUS Silver Bullet (the 1985 film)!

Cut The Crap Movie Review – IT (2017)



 

Stephen King has long been labeled the modern day Master of the Macabre, even though not all of his novels and short stories are considered horror. But because the majority of his body of work does exist in the realm of nightmare fueled, scream-inducing terror, they are ripe for adaptation.
Over the decades, King’s work has appeared on both the big and small screens. During the ’90’s and early 2000’s, it wasn’t uncommon to see a new tv mini-series based off a King book every year or so. One would think that breaking up a massive story over two, three or sometimes even four nights would give filmmakers the chance to adapt King’s works more faithfully, right? The horror and gore had to be watered down for the television viewing public, but that’s a small price to pay for getting the story transferred, isn’t it?

Wrong!

You can’t do justice to any written work if you have to censor the tone to make it work for a new medium! Cut parts out that won’t transfer well to film? Understandable. Change things around so the flow of the film is more fast-paced than the book? If you have to. But when you boil it down, the point of Stephen King’s work is to make you as uncomfortable as possible while peeling back the layers of real-life horrors! Tricking people, King hides those horrors behind the mask of a possessed car, or a rabid dog, or a haunted hotel…or a child eating, shapeshifting clown!

2017 brought moviegoers what some fans and critics are calling the BEST interpretation of King’s work ever! The film was a juggernaut at the box office and has since been made available on DVD, Blue Ray & VOD. But after all the hype…does it still hold up?  It’s time to Cut The Crap as 2GuysTalkingHorror reviews the 2017 theatrical release of IT.
