King Horror Claims a Hollow Home

Stephen King's short story, “A Good Marriage” from his 2010 novella Full Dark, No Stars, is becoming a feature film starring Joan Allen as a wife whose spring cleaning unearths her husband’s darkest secrets. Film scouts found the couple’s perfect house languishing on Bellwood Avenue in the ritzy “Manor” neighborhood of Sleepy Hollow. Since the 1950s, the house was used as a library and office space for the Historic Hudson Valley organization. It fell into disrepair until discovered by Hollywood. Now film crews are giving the house a transformative facelift! The expansive street is packed with crew trucks busy with home renovations and nosy neighbors (like this roving reporter) testing camera phones (blurry shots from our move-along-now car). Filming is rumored to start at the end of May. No sightings yet of Uncle Stevie, but TPTB hope the Master of Horror will pose for some gruesomely great Halloween photos during his visit to the Home of the Headless Horseman.

Mona lives in a glass castle and tries not to throw heavy objects, especially stones, that can shatter her belief system. She owns many books yet doesn't make enough time to read them all or write new ones. She is presently trying to teach her cats to read.
