Stephen King’s Dollar Babies | Halloween | Filmmakers Q&A. Unnerving, disturbing tales are Stephen King’s specialty, as evidenced by these six films adapted from his short stories (see October 31 for a second program of Dollar Babies). An aging husband’s neurological decline may or may not reveal and unthinkable tragedy; a maid visits a priestess, who has some unusual advice about her unborn son and the author staying at her hotel; an author must decide how much he relates to the characters he’s created; a snowy crash in Jerusalem’s Lot causes trouble for a couple of nearby townsfolk; a young couple ignores warnings to leave their summer cottage; and a man’s plan for revenge hits a roadblock when he’s locked in a portable toilet.
After the program, directors Walter Perez and Stephen Tramontana will take the stage for a Q&A about their films.
