The Dark Half

The Dark Half  Description 
Thad Beaumont (Timothy Hutton) is a happily married family man with a successfully two-faced career as a writer. On the one hand, he publishes respected but poorly-selling scholarly works under his own name. It is under the name George Stark, however, that he sells millions of books with his signature strain of extremely violent action novels. When Thad makes the decision to write only under his own name, he stages a PR-friendly burial for his pen name which receives prominent media coverage. After this event, itís not long before townspeople somehow connected to Thad start turning up dead, with all clues pointing to the unassuming author. Is there a second party trying to frame Thad? Could the murders be somehow connected to the fragments of a undeveloped twin removed from Thadís brain when he was a boy? When the sheriff (Michael Rooker) finds Thadís fingerprints at the crime scenes, the unsuspecting authorís life spins increasingly out of control. Director George Romero adapts frequent collaborator Stephen Kingís 1989 best-seller into a tight mainstream thriller with a fine dual performance from Hutton.

In director George A. Romero's THE DARK HALF, based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, author Thad Beaumont sees his very normal family life turn upside down when his nom de plume takes on an identity of its own and commits a series of violent murders.

Shot on location in Pennsylvania.

THE DARK HALF was completed in 1991, but the collapse of distributor Orion Pictures caused the film to languish on the shelf for two years.

"...An exceptionally entertaining film....Outdistances every other King adaptation [besides THE SHINING]..."

"...It certainly ranks as one of the top King adaptations..."
