The King of Horror was born on this day–in 1947.

His importance to the world of literature–especially Horror–cannot be overstated. He truly is the “King”.

So loved this show.
It’s like a mash-up of Stand By Me/Alien/Super 8.
or
Stephen King meets Steven Spielberg by way of Guillermo Del Toro.
This is the kind of story I loved to read when I was a kid–and the kind of story I want to write, especially for kids. Everyone should watch this.

Historical Happening:

My favorite haunted house film–The Legend of Hell House–was released today in 1973. (It’s based on the novel–my favorite haunted house novel–by Richard Matheson, who also wrote the screenplay).
