Halloween Audio Ala Stephen King

Carrie-StephenKing-AudioDid Carrie freak you out?  I’m talking about the original one with Sissy Spacek.  Stephen King’s first published novel has been remade into a current version Carrie The Movie.  The previews alone are enough to make the hairs stand up on my arm so imagine the movie.  I remember seeing the original movie but had not realized that Sissy Spacek is the Narrator of the current unabridged audio book.  Stephen King does the intro and even that gives me the creeps.

There is something about horror stories that make them both repelling and attractive at the same time.  You can say the same about Halloween.  As a kid I was always the one who had nightmares and couldn’t sleep after seeing a horror movie yet I always couldn’t help myself.  I had to know the outcome of the story and in the end that is what movies are, stories.  Stephen King is a master at weaving the story that sucks you in like the car crash you don’t want to see but stare at anyway.

Besides the release of this new version of Carrie, Stephen King also published the follow up to another one of his most memorable scary stories, The Shining.  He follows it up with Doctor Sleep which brings back the little boy Dan Torrance.  Again this can only build on the terror brought to life by Jack Nicholson in the Shining.  Whenever I walk down a hotel hallway I can’t help but say “redrum, redrum” in my head.  Doctor Sleep is narrated by Will Patton who has such a great voice.  Some of you may better know him as Captain Weaver in the show Falling Skies.  He does a good deal of audio book narration though.

If you want a good scare this Halloween season Stephen King audio books won’t let you down but you do need to be careful if you are driving.  They can be so distracting you may end up being a ghost in one of his future stories…
