I’m a goner, ain’t I, Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day? I’ve got that stuff from the meteor on me and I’m gone, ain’t I?

Published at: Oct. 15, 2010, 6:32 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! I would have loved to have a picture of Stephen King from Maximum Overdrive, his first and last foray into directing and a movie I think is kinda dumb, but in all the right ways. I’m a huge fan of that flick and a huge King fan in general, so it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t include the maestro in my October horror run of BtSPotD. Thankfully I do have a nice picture of King and George Romero hanging out on the set of CREEPSHOW, which King wrote and starred in as the country bumpkin Jordy Verrill. Last Halloween I was Jordy Verrill, albeit the fat version, with moss covering my face, overalls and a plaid shirt, so you can tell I’m a pretty big fan of Creepshow. Hell, I even love Creepshow 2. The Raft is probably my favorite segment of any of the Creepshow films. But The Lonely Death of Jordy Verrill is pretty close. What good horror geek hasn’t exclaimed “Meteor shit!” when they get their hands dirty?

I’m a sucker for anthology horror and any throwback to the great EC comics days done by modern masters is always smiled upon. Here’s the pic, click for a bigger image! Enjoy!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes Pic will involve one of the above two men. See ya’ then! -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    by buffywrestling

    Local; very small affair held in a hotel "ballroom". Found the Creepshow graphic novel signed by King and the dude wanted $11 bucks for it. I was hemming & hawing {that was a case a beer & a pack of smokes at the time! Canadian, of course} but it was the only thing I bought. I wasn't a comic nerd - or that much of a geek at the time - but I was already a Stephen King fan. My first fandom. You always remember your first.

    ...I also wondered why, when Tales from the Crypt was hot, someone didn't jump on the bandwagon and do one based on Eerie or Creepy. I loved those. And has anyone seen Creepshow 3? They have it at the library but I wasn't sure if it would be worth picking up.

    King use to be pretty good....

    by Arcangel2020

    I use to be a HUGE Stephen King fan growing up...Man! I loved reading his earlier works like..Salems Lot, Pet Cemetary, Christine, IT, Skeleton Crew, The Stand, Fire Starter...hell, even Cujo was pretty good for novel about an insanely rabid killer St. Bernard!! I even enjoyed watching the first "Creepshow" Movie as a kid in High School (Took a high school sweetie whom I had a major crush on and she was a huge horror fan too ;) ) Then..something seemed to happen to Mr. Stephen King...he was either taken over by a Pod people impersonator or maybe he was replaced by a "Fringe" Universe/Alternative King...all the moves that were made from his Novels and Short stories...Children of The Corn, Christine, Firestarter, IT, Pet Cemetary..yeah, even the Stanley Kubrick version of The Shinning and Maximum Overdrive...were all pieces of shit! It's like King became so full of himself and thinking he was the Ultimate voice of a generation of Horror Writers that he whored his works out just to get them onscreen and basically was like..Fuck YOU fans of my work! Of course ther have been rare exceptions to the rule when it comes to Kings stuff being translated to the screen..both Big and Small..Stand By Me and Shawshank Redemption are excellent films to this day...The Stand mini-series was passable and as was the more true to the original version of The Shinning TV Miniseries remake. I don't care for his little camero appearences in his movies based on his books...it isn't cool or humorous the way Stan Lee's apprearences in Spiderman and The Hulk were...in fact...I cringed when I saw him on Sons of Anarchy as "Mr. Bachman" (Yeah, real "cute"/real "funny"...not!!) Lemme ask you all a rehtorical question here...could YOU sit through such Stephen King made for TV crap as IT, Tommyknockers and Rose Madder? Yeah, neither could I! And his more recent works like The Cell and Under The Dome? Garbage and should be used as kindling to light a fire with only! Mr. King needs to retire and stop embarassing himself by writing any more garbage with which to subject on his fans and former fans.

    "Do you love?"

    by Sailor Rip

    As far as The Raft goes, it is one of the most disturbing and effective pieces of storytelling ever brought to screen. The end where the guy is like "I beat you, I beat you!" and the thing just fucking reigns up and....reminds me of The Blob remake. One of the best remakes ever. After, The Thing and The Fly of course.

    don't remember "The Jaunt". Is tha the one where they're jumping off the barn loft? "Survivor Type" I do remember. Guy deserted on beach, pumping himself full of heroin in order to stay alive while he eats his limbs. Ahhhh Skeleton Crew. Also like the one where the guy drinks skunked beer and turns into a gelatinous mess and the one where the astronaut grows eyes all over his body. It's been a while. Might have to dig it out of the archives. It is Halloween after all and we're all entitled to one good scare. Right?

    Seriously? King for the most part has NOTHING to do with the movies based on his books. <p> I hate when people say, and I'm not saying you, "I like Stephen King's movies." He made Maximum Overdrive, The Shining tv movie, Storm of the Century, Sleepwalkers, and maybe some others but to judge him from the movies made of his work is very irresponsible. <p> The guy's a writer. He writes. Books.

    The Jaunt

    by buffywrestling

    was a sci-fi piece. People travelled to Mars[?] but they had to be anesthetized first or else it wouldn't work. I loved how the inventor "jaunted" his finger across the barn by mistake and finally figured out that the mice had to be asleep before they came out normal on the other end. The whole story about the inventor was very introspective. He unfortunatly passes along that introspectiveness to his son, who holds his breath during his "gassing". Time travel? "It's longer than you think, Dad, " he croaked. "It's longer than you think."

    Being a biased fan

    by buffywrestling

    I don't think King has gotten worse at story telling. I realize that statement kinda null & voids my opinion but fuck it. Every King story I read still has his "voice" for me. It still has his own cadence. King books are special to me because I "hear" them different inner voice than any other author I read. <p> True fact for me: The first novel I ever read was "The Shining". I was 11. The first line: "Officious little prick." I didn't know what "officious" even meant but it was like a sledgehammer to me. <p> Now King might be getting old and he may have had a life-changing near death experience that for some reason people think he should stop revisiting but he can still pull out a story altering *sentence* that will make a mediocre read memorable for me.

    King's movies

    by MandrakeRoot

    While King may not play a part in many of the film adaptations (writing, directing, etc.), these are still films based on his stories. For that alone he deserves a lot of credit. And while yes, there has been some shitty ones, I think people tend to overlook how many great ones there are; The Shining, Carrie, Misery, Stand By Me, Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile...some great movies there. Then you have a lot of other decent ones like The Mist (I'd say better then devcent), Dead Zone, Christine, Pet Sematary, The Stand (TV), Thinner. The anthologies are a good watch too (Creepshow, Cat's Eye). And I guess you could include Running Man, but then again it bears very little resemblance to the novel. Anyway, I can't think of many authors who have that many OK to Great films based off their work.

    My favorite is The Ballad Of The Flexible Bullet

    by Monolith_Jones

    It's in Skeleton Crew. It's about a successful writer who believes a "Fornit" lives in his typewriter. His madness "infects" his editor as he indulges the writer at the request of the writers wife. I prefer King's short stories rather than his novels. <p> <p> I also like The Mist, Jerusalem's Lot, and One For The Road maybe? City guy stumbles in to a bar around Salem's Lot, during a blizzard, his wife and kid are stuck with their car. So the Old man bar owner and the old man patron go to help them, ready to fight vampires.

  • Oct. 16, 2010, 4:03 a.m. CST

    I think most of us are not here to "make a name for ourselves". I would gather that most, me included, are here to talk movies and not become some kind of talkback celebrity. I have to believe that because if I believed people's lives were so empty they come here to find attention and an identity any faith I had in humanity, which is low at the moment, would fucking implode.

    The Lawnmower Man

    by Sailor Rip

    Why did they name the movie that? It has absolutely ZERO, fuck all nothing to do with King's story. Not one fucking word...except the title.

    Koontz? I'll admit, Phantoms is a great book(I like to call it the best Stephen King book not written by Stephen King). But the other's I've read(Midnight, Demon Seed, I forget the others) not so good. Although Night Chills was decent as was Intensity. I guess he is ok afterall. I guess it's just Midnight. Koontz really didn't seem to know what kind of book he wanted it to be.

    TWO EVIL EYES

    by Darthkrusty

    by Darthkrusty

    Love King

    by Hipshot

    And have had the chance to hang out with him, just a bit, on a few ocasions. He is a madman, and plays a mean R&R guitar. A genuinely decent human being who once autographed a copy of "Eye of the Dragon" to my newborn daughter (name excised here) "To X...welcome to life, sweetheart. Steven King." He is a national treasure, and probably the great storyteller of the 20th Century.

    I hope Stephen King didn't really spell his own name wrong. Are you sure it was him? jk.

    "You did well.

    by AugustusMacReady

    Go out and fuck somebody. But wear a damn rubber, everybody's got the damn herpes these days." Every so often I get the urge to watch Creepshow 3. Is there ANYthing in it worth a look?

    Trick 'r Treat

    by D_T

    Just another vote for it - really fun anthology horror flick (in the vein of Creepshow, Twilight Zone) with a nice overarching storyline (featuring the little creepy fellow on the cover art). I picked it up for $7 on BD after we saw it the first time last year - going into our Halloween movie rotation :)

    My first thought on that day was "They must have read Rage" and was not surprised to learn years later of his reaction.

    It's "The Lonesome Death," Not "Lonely Death"

    by PinkFloyd7

    Yeah, it's nitpicking, but someone who claims to be a huge fan should know that.
