  |  @   |  

You may have heard of Stephen King. I think he sold a book or two”¦ or 350 million. The world-famous author and his son, fellow author Owen King, packed the St. Ann’s & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, September 26, as part of an event put on by Books Are Magic, a bookstore in Cobble Hill. We got there for the 8:00 PM event at 4:30 PM, and the line was already wrapped around the block. I asked the group sitting in folding chairs in the front when they got there and the casually responded, 9:30 AM. Introduced by Emma Straub, owner of the bookstore and daughter of King collaborator Peter Straub, the Kings took the stage to raucous applause.

“I will take you places you’ve never been. I will show you things that you have never seen and I will see the life run out of you.”

Written by Lawrence D. Cohen (Carrie) and directed by John Irvin (Hamburger Hill), 1981’s Ghost Story is based on the best-selling 1979 novel by author Peter Straub.

In a quiet New England town, four old friends – Ricky Hawthorne (Fred Astaire), Sears James (John Houseman), Dr. John Jaffrey (Melvyn Douglas), and Edward Wanderley (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) – comprise the Chowder Society, a social club dedicated to the telling of ghastly tales.

Scary stories become reality after a bizarre family tragedy. In New York City, Edward’s son, David (Craig Wasson, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors), dies under unusual circumstances. After witnessing his fiancé (Alice Krige) transform into a living, rotting corpse, David plummets to his death from a high-rise window.
