TODAY'S 2nd NUGGET: Dreamcatcher (2003) Part II - King's Opinion Why This Script is Good

I just had to share this one last quote from King's forward.

He explains further why he thinks so highly of this script:
Maybe the most notable thing is what you won't find here: the easy shortcuts, the stereotyping, the reliance on shock effects to replace the work of building characters the audience is willing to care about.  Believe it or not, I have never been particularly interested in horror; what I care about is how people react to the unexpected, the painful, and the terrible --Jonesy's accident, for instance, which isn't a bit supernatural. The business of good fiction, whether on film or the printed page, is saying something true about how we live, how we get along, and how we die.
