2017 looks to be a big year for Stephen King adaptations hitting the big and small screen with “The Mist” (TV), “It: Part 1,” “The Dark Tower,” “Gerald’s Game,” and potentially even more being released throughout the year.

In honor of the upcoming “Holidays” (which is set for a VOD release 4/15/2016), this week’s list is dedicated to one of my favorite subgenres- horror anthology films. For years, horror anthology films sadly seemed to be a thing of the past, but lately there’s been a welcomed resurgence thanks to films like “The ABCs of Death,” “V/H/S,” “A Christmas Horror Story,” “Tales of Halloween,” etc. Granted, this recent batch has been highly uneven, but I’ll still take a mediocre horror anthology film over most modern films.

In honor of the film adaptation of “Horns” (now out on VOD and iTunes with a theatrical release to follow on October 31st), Harper Collins has released a new movie tie-in paperback edition that prominently features star Daniel Radcliffe on the cover.
Written by Joe Hill (the son of literary legend Stephen King), this 2010 horror novel is a murder mystery of sorts that revolves around the tragic and brutal death of a young woman named Merrin. Prior to her death, Ignatius Perrish (who goes by Ig for short) was the boyfriend of Merrin, and while he seems to be quite innocent, the small town locals believe he is guilty of the murder. A year after Merrin’s murder, Ig awakens to find that he has grown horns atop of his head. Stranger still, these horns seem to have powers over people. With this gift (or curse), Ig sets out on a dark path to find answers about who really killed Merrin.
