Blurb/Shorttext:
Mara-Lise Owen’s book presents adaptation theory and how film techniques affect two Stephen King adaptations, "Carrie" and "Children of the Corn." In the films "Carrie" and Children of the Corn," there are many examples of film techniques being used and also many moments where there is a clear difference between the use of specific film techniques, such as character development, the close-up, camera angles and lighting. During the release of "Carrie," most audience members were astounded by its complexity as a film, and merely eight years later, "Children of the Corn" did not receive nearly as much praise. This book argues that it is the significant use or lack of use of film techniques that affect how adaptations are experienced, and how a specific medium's techniques affect how we adapt to our real world's society.
