Having embraced King’s softer side with Stand by Me, Rob Reiner’s second adaptation of the author’s work saw him plunge headlong into much darker territory. After a near fatal car crash, a bestselling novelist finds himself at the mercy of his ‘number one fan.’ Expertly blending agonising tension with jet-black humour, it remains one of the most successful cinematic distillations of King’s writing.
