15 Easter Eggs Lurking In Stephen King Movies

The Master of Horror. The Deranged Mind of Maine. He Who is Fueled by Cocaine. Stephen King has been responsible for that little fear-shart you’ve made every once in a while since before you were born. When you’ve written one out of every five published horror books for the last 50+ years like he has, you’ll brown a few millionaire pairs of underwear

But not only has King made his (skid)mark in literature — he has made an impact on film, too. Several of his works have been made into movies and TV series of variable quality and success. Since his books have Easter eggs and references to one another within them, it only makes sense that his film and television works refer to one another, too.
