Film Review: Stephen King's Strawberry Spring (Crimson Productions) by James K. Blaylock

Stephen King's Strawberry Spring
Based on the short story by Stephen King
Directed by Carter DeCurtis and Morgan Gunderson
Release date: June 25, 2016
Stephen King’s Strawberry Spring is a well-intended short film. But of course it suffers from many of the traits of such a venture. Unfortunately not only does it fail to reach an audience but its sound issues make it hard to even care anyways. Not to tear a black hole into its creator’s heart, or anything, because I’m sure this was still a worthwhile learning experience. But next outing look a little deeper into your creation and pinpoint any hindrances, if there are any. Tweak those bad boys unto perfection. It’s always better to put in a little more effort than allow everyone see those frailties. Besides wouldn’t Stephen King demand nothing less of himself? I can just imagine him being a perfectionist. There you have it: the good, the bad and the ugly. -James K. Blaylock
