At the end of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, Jimmy Stewart appears to have gone crazy and is about the murder his whole family. He’s just got that look.

Have you ever thought about doing a dark take on its a wonderful life.. It's my favorite Christmas movie, but a twist on it by you would be pretty damn awesome.

How dark of a take do you want? It’s a movie about a guy contemplating suicide on Christmas Eve
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I have had a theory for many years that It's a Wonderful Life is a horror/thriller. A man with dreams of traveling the world and experiencing life becomes stuck in a never ending loop of life disappointments and traumas. "And danced by the light of the moon"
 
In reply to @StephenKing
It was his first project after the war and you might find the odd article suggesting that some PTSD entered the role.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Just watched it the other night -we’ve all had those moments of being overwhelmed - the police officer randomly shooting in the town square disturbed me more to be quite honest
 
In reply to @StephenKing
So who really is"Stephen King"? As we all but not everybody gets paid for it!how do I contact the real Stephen King by email please

Homeboy is out here writing the book of Stephen wtf. I think you need to give the pen a break my man - remember zuzus petals.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Sorry to get all bitchy here, but by far you are my favorite author of all time bro. I won’t even get into the books because I’ve read them all, the only book that was so frightening was doctor sleep. If you were able to make me afraid to turn the page, then you’re the KING.

There is a horror movie (forget the title) that has a scene of a mashup of IAWL and Night of the Living Dead, resulting in the entire cast of the former turning into zombies at the ending which is absolutely bonkers.

If you want to know what happened next, read Suspects by David Thomson. Great “novel.”

Murdering Lionel Barrymore's rotten character Mr. Potter would've been dark since he was in a wheelchair. Would be a sick twist yet weirdly satisfying.🎄 #tistheseason #ItsAWonderfulLife pic.twitter.com/mdrymvTPv9
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The Dana Carvey SNL skit of the town kicking Mr. Potter’s ass is priceless.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I've maintained (and I'm sure I'm not alone) that if It's a Wonderful Life ends just after Clarence grants George's first request, it's a Twighlight Zone episode.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
It was called Needful Things
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Still the best version of it’s a wonderful life: youtu.be/70dMT3AluXA
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I’ve often thought that too !!!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I'm a mediator and mediation trainer. I love that scene, and show it whenever I teach advanced mediation skills, to illustrate how the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems often affect behavior in people who are immersed in conflict. pic.twitter.com/gz7q3aSQ6w
 
In reply to @StephenKing
oh, yes, and that's what he did, and the rest of the movie after that is him imagining what it would have been like without him while laying on his cot on death row, moments before his execution
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Oh, please, I get that look *every* Christmas.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I'm torn so many pieces! I'm aghast at this concept. I'm rolling with laughter. I'm intrigued...
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Great. Now I have to watch that again. Back-to-back with Exorcist III.

They need to take their medicine! Unmask!

The Angel turns out to be evil and he finds, to his horror, that by choosing to dwell on the money, rather than his family, and by accepting the money at the end, Clarence emphasizes the choice by slaughtering his family in front of him.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Mirroring the real life crime of the mild mannered accountant that murdered his entire family, fled, lived incognito, Motive: debt (and who knows), only to find that their old house had a huge, huge Tiffany stained glass window cld have paid off the debt. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Well zsu zsu can do that to a person
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Most of that movie is very dark with little spots of sweetness. It is an inimitable classic. Plus Gloria Graham in a tiny role is heartbreaking…
 
In reply to @StephenKing
That would be a major improvement. Such a false movie. Ugh
 
In reply to @StephenKing
You should see the 2002 Muppet version, featuring a suicidal Kermit whose death somehow prevents Twin Towers 9/11 destruction. Theatre a sleazy boozecan. Miss Piggy doing Jamaican patois as telephone psychic. Fozzy a thief. Lots of dark & disturbing mayhem pic.twitter.com/ZH0Z7qoxoG
 
In reply to @StephenKing
How about George finds a door that lets him go back and forth between the two worlds and goes to the “bad” Bedford Falls every now and then to explore his dark side?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He's dreaming. When he hit the tree with his car he got a concussion. Then he images Clarence and the Earth where he never was born. Then the dream shifts to a happy one. At the end we see him in a hospital bed with a brain tumor imagining he is happy with his family.

salut mon ami comment vas-tu? c'est de nouveau moi, j'ai reçu enfin ton livre en anglais :) ça va entraîner mon anglais :) je suis contente je comprends beaucoup de mot par paragraphe ^^ mais si je puis me permettre, la couverture du livre en allemand est plus jolie :) pic.twitter.com/gVUxlOsu77
 
In reply to @StephenKing
The beginning of the film implies that Clarence has tried many times to earn his wings, and failed. I want to know what happened to THOSE poor bastards.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I like that story about the novelist who gets angry in his old age an ruins everything. What's it called? Oh yeah, your life.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I saw this movie. It had Jack Nicholson in it.
 
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
That’s not doing a dark take dude, that’s just your perception being all fuckey in the head

Stressed to the max, will make you crazy.

Jimmy was on his last legs after contracting TB. I'm surprised the reedy son-of-a-b*tch made it to Washington.

Hey. We're already doing that and it's called The Shining Revival.

The American people were denied their choice of voting for the president of we wanted. Thiscant go on. We wouldn't be in this mess. We owe the world to ELON MUSK

You should write a book about a father who goes crazy and tries to kill his family during the winter time. Oh wait...

The angel clarance calls into the house and they welcome him with xmas cheer and he sleeps over but during the night he strangles them in their beds .😇😳

Didn't expect to have company when he walked in. The kid and the piano was too much.

Wtf does this have to do with Trump? You’ve lost your compass. The plot. Your way. Your why.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Just started reading “It”, and once again, excellent work on the in depth dive into your characters thoughts, and the one-liners!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
“Every time a bell rings an angel gets it’s wings”…”That”s right, that’s right!” Hilarious 😂. The manic phase.

Hi Mr king, my wife has great set stories about the hero going crazy. You might like. Please follow back for a dm.

🤔Isn't that the Shining!?

Requires at least a cameo by Molly, the Thing of Evil…
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Also Christmas songs... someone once posted that this one is actually about a domestic abuser who has tracked down his family and is on his way to kill them all... "I can't wait to see their faces" youtube.com/watch?v=DDt3u2…
 
In reply to @StephenKing
@StephenKing you know how to put a twist on everything. I love your work!
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Every time I read what you write. I think to myself, he can't be this dumb. I am wrong every time.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
If anyone has the look of a psycho killer, it's you Steve. You already have blood on your hands, why push it?
 
In reply to @StephenKing
Ha, you would know too!
 
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
When George is praying in the bar, someone slips acid into his drink. His visions of Potterville, his conversations with Clarence, his meeting a terrified Mary, are all hallucinations.
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I’d rather watch Bell Book and Candle
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
I've got another alternative "dark" ending. Let me dare (though I haven't read that story): Happy people look at the window of their house and see that the snow is red. They smile and lough: "Thanks God it is not blood but just some toxic wastes from a local factory" pic.twitter.com/768Uo4Gku0
 
 
In reply to @StephenKing
He wants to give his little angels wings. No bells needed.
