Nothing But Trouble Page 10
When I was a wee kid, I remember having the telly on in the background while playing. I often played with cartoons like Transformers or just had it on for background noise. One day, a movie captured my attention and had me watching, forgetting my toys. Sure, I did not understand everything that happened but I got the gist of it. The movie turned out to be the adaption of Stephen King‘s Thinner. The movie stuck with me for a long time and recently I got my hands on a copy of the book. It also influenced me when it came to the slow thrilling buildup of horror, instead of jumpscares and slashers.
