Stephen King’s ‘Suffer the Little Children’ to be adapted by Bonfire Films.
Maine based collaborative team Corey and Haley Norman of Bonfire Films are set to bring Stephen King’s short story Suffer the Little Children to life with their latest film. Hardcore King fans will be familiar with the tale from his 1993 collection; Nightmares and Dreamscapes despite being initially published in 1972. Suffer the Little Children centres on a third grade teacher who starts to become suspicious that her young pupils are possessed. According to The Great Stephen King Universe, the tale has been described as an “effective chiller” as there is certainly nothing more terrifying that the destruction of innocence. Nightbreed actress Anne Bobby who has previously worked on Bonfire Films previous feature will star in Suffer the Little Children as lead character Ms. Sidley. Bobby ensures us that the movie is guaranteed to “scare the crap out of you” as it did her reading it.
The Hanover House filmmakers need our support to make this dreamscape a reality! The Norman’s require the help of the fans to achieve this fantastic project. Over on indiegogo they have set up a campaign with some must have perks on offer from signed posters to a copy of their short film Tickle to a name in the credits; there’s even opportunities to make a cameo in the film as a teacher (no dialogue role) and attend its eventual premiere. Other than donating, you can raise awareness by sharing the campaign page over various social media. Being given the rights to adapt the works of King comes full circle for the writing/directing team who originate from Portland, Maine just like the iconic author. There is no doubt that this is where some of the best American horror comes from.
Bonfire Films have achieved various awards for their work so far at horror festivals across the US including best short film, best feature film and best director.
