Final Audio Excerpt from Full Dark, No Stars; Expanded Synopsis & Liner Notes for A Good Marriage

Published

on

With its November 9th release date just one short week away, the fourth and final audio excerpt from Stephen King’s upcoming Full Dark, No Stars is now available from the book’s official website, this time from “A Good Marriage”, along with author King’s liner notes for that novella as well its slightly modified synopsis.

Fourth Audio Excerpt from Full Dark, No StarsAs a reminder, the narrators for the audio edition of Full Dark, No Stars are Craig Wasson (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) and Jessica Hecht (Wes Craven’s My Soul to Take). To listen, either click the image to the right or visit the official Full Dark, No Stars website, where you can also read along with the excerpt.

You’ll find the “A Good Marriage” liner notes below the synopses for all four of the Full Dark, No Stars novellas and a short commercial:

  • “1922” – “I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger…” writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “1922,” the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness. (Listen to an excerpt here.)
  • “Big Driver” – In “Big Driver,” a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself. (Listen to an excerpt here.)
  • “Fair Extension” – “Fair Extension,” the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil – never a stranger from most people with something to lose – not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment. (Listen to an excerpt here.)
  • “A Good Marriage” – When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable, and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.

    Liner Notes for “A Good Marriage”:
    What, I ask you, is more of an American success story than a good marriage? It’s something we all celebrate, occasioning ever more sumptuous parties to mark ten years, twenty, forty, sometimes even sixty. Big cakes! Lovely presents! But inside every marriage is a secret world full of its own rewards and resentments, sweetness and anger, heat and cold. Do we know everything about our partners, even after decades? I think not. I think some secrets still hold. In “A Good Marriage”, Darcy Anderson discovers her husband has been keeping an especially terrible secret for years. What happens when, on a perfectly ordinary evening, all the things you believed in and took for granted are turned upside-down? What do you do and who do you call on when you discover that your good marriage has been built on a nightmare foundation of torture and murder?

    Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy

    Published

    on

    We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

    Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

    Principal photography began back in October 2017.

    Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth

    Published

    on

    Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

    Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

    Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

    In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
