I've actually been waiting for this movie for a while. It's based off the book Horns by Joe Hill. Hill is actually the son of Stephen King and his work isn't all that bad. Definitely pick this one up along with NOS4A2 for anyone who likes a good read you may not like books but I do... **** off

Come on anon. The more you know the more you're worth. You should always jump on opportunities to learn something new when it presents itself.

Also, Locke & Key... one of the best graphic novel series I've read/looked at pretty pictures of. Only 6 books too, so it isn't super expensive to nab the lot of em.

NOS4R2 mate, you made a minor mistake. Heart-shaped box is also good, but it feels like it's one of his earlier books based on the writing style. I just bought 20th Century Ghost, NOS4R2 and Horns for my birthday, looking forward to reading them.

Also, it's really cool, the reason he writes under the name Hill is because he didn't want his success to be based on that of his fathers, and he definitely succeeded in that regard.

Actually it's NOS4A2 in the USA and NOS4R2 in the UK.
By the way, Stephen King himself did a similar thing - he wrote a couple of books under the pseudonym Richard Bachman to see if his fame wasn't just a coincidence. I think the books got quite popular before people learnt that it was him all along. Maybe Joe got inspired and did the same thing, or maybe even Stephen wanted his son to succeed on his own instead of living from his dad's fame.

On the subject of Richard Bachman...the last piece he wrote as Richard Bachman was called The Regulators. The cool thing about this is that the book was written after Bachman "died" and is set in a parallel universe to a book he wrote as Stephen King called Desperation. If you have both hardcovers they line up to make one big picture

Oh I know mate, I have every single Stephen King, I'm a big fan. I do love the whole personality he's given to Richard Bachman, going as far as to discover books he wrote before he "died", as you've said. I remember in an interview he claimed that these books were being found by Bachman's wife in trunk in the attic. Honestly, of all the King books the Bachman's are some of my favourites, they're somehow even darker then the normal King books.

I also bought Mr. Mercedes along with all the Hill books, so I'm keeping up to date on the collection. I only recently read the Dark Tower series by the way and it blew my mind how he managed to even link himself into his own series. It was one of those wow moments, just so clever.

Wow, that's awesome! This only proves what a badass King is. (Not that it needs to be proven, everybody already knows it).
