About ENGS 113 Z1

Since the release of Brian DePalma's film CARRIE in 1976, Hollywood's involvement with adapting Stephen King's fictional universe into film has been nothing less than obsessive. At this point in time, over 70 films have been made either based on Stephen King narratives or screen/teleplay scripts that King himself authored. This course seeks to engage some of the best of these films: CARRIE, STAND BY ME, THE SHINING, APT PUPIL, DOLORES CLAIBORNE, THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION with the intention of exploring several issues: despite their different directors and screenwriters, do these films maintain some kind of vision that connects them; what makes these films so popular; and how effectively do they translate King's narrative intentions into film. The course will mostly consist of class discussion, with the occasional lecture as well. Assignments will include a 5 page two-minute analysis of a scene from one of the films and a cumulative take-home final exam.
