The folks over at Psycho Drive-In are kicking off a new column devoted to film adaptations of great stories with Page to Screen and little old me has the privilege of being the very first contributor to this latest addition. So, what masterpiece of horror or science fiction did I choose to inaugurate this moment? Well, an under appreciated little gem of a short story called Eight O’clock in the Morning by Ray Nelson. Never heard of it? That’s okay. I’m sure this will help jog your memory.
John Carpenter’s classic They Live! was inspired by the brief but thought provoking story by Ray Nelson. Want to read my thoughts on it? I knew you would. Just follow the link and while you’re at it, check out all the other great reviews and stories that PDI has to offer.
