Since then, more than 50 directors have adapted the master of horror's books, in more than 80 films and series, making him the most adapted author alive in the world. What's so fascinating about him that filmmakers cannot stop adapting his works? KING ON SCREEN reunites the filmmakers that have adapted Stephen King's books for cinema and TV, including Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, The Walking Dead), Tom Holland (The Langoliers, Chucky), Mick Garris (The Stand, Sleepwalkers) and Taylor Hackford (Dolores Claiborne, Ray).

      Brian Lowry CNN.com Almost inadvertently, though, this new documentary highlights what a mixed bag all those productions have yielded, with insights into where and how King-inspired productions shine, and where they haven’t. Aug 15, 2023 Full Review Meagan Navarro Bloody Disgusting While Baiwir successfully underscores how prolific King and his adapted works remain, King’s expansive output presents a tricky hurdle for the director to connect the interviews and talking points to a cohesive throughline. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 10, 2023 Full Review Anton Bitel Little White Lies Baiwir assesses King’s work through the medium of adaptation, turning for insightful commentary to nearly all the directors who have converted his writing to cinema, in a whistle-stop tour of this prolific, often prescient author’s œuvre. Jun 19, 2023 Full Review Lee Zumpe Tampa Bay Newspapers The documentary never fully engages the viewer. Baiwir fails to impart her enthusiasm for King’s work and for the dedication of so many filmmakers who have helmed King adaptations. Oct 26, 2023 Full Review Daniel M. Kimmel North Shore Movies In spite of its shortcomings, “King On Screen” is a film that fans of the author and/or the film versions will find fascinating. Consider this the start of the conversation rather than the final word on the subject. Rated: 3/5 Sep 11, 2023 Full Review Neely Swanson Easy Reader (California) “King on Screen” is more than the sum of its parts, so much so that you can forgive the director the lame imitation of King in her opening foray before she dives into the meat of the issue with the director interviews and fun film clips.
