The documentary details the historic career and cultural impact of legendary horror fiction novelist Stephen King.
Stephen King: A Necessary Evil will be available on MagellanTV to all, including non-subscribers, through Halloween. (Following October 31, only Magellan subscribers will have access)
Through extensive and rare archival footage – including King’s past interviews, guest lectures and book readings – and framed by scenes from his novels’ myriad feature film adaptations, Stephen King: A Necessary Evil chronicles the renowned author’s life from his modest upbringing in Maine through his meteoric rise in popular literature. The feature also sheds light on King’s little-known introspections, including his perspectives on mainstream versus “serious” literature and evaluations of his own book-to-screen adaptions over the years.
Stephen King: A Necessary Evil is directed by Julien Dupuy and produced by Arte France, Brainworks and Rockyrama. It was previously released in France and Germany.
