Chapelwaite (EPIX - Stephen King S: Adrian Brody)

I searched for a thread about this show and found none. Chapelwaite is on EPIX and is based on Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot (apparently there's a new movie in the works as well). This is a prequel to the book.

Following his wife's tragic death at sea, Captain Charles Boone (Adrien Brody) and his children return to the small town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine, where a dark family history haunts them until confronted.



I'm up to episode 5 and it's really getting good. This is a good view for King fans. Anyone else watching this?


Edit: Can a Mod edit the title to spell King's name correctly? I tried to immediately edit and couldn't. Thanks!

Edit Edit: Thank you!

I'm watching it and enjoying it. It's definitely a slow burn but much better then King's recent slow burn Lisey's Story.

I enjoyed Lisey's Story but I agree this is better.

I think it is, specifically, based on King's short story "Jerusalem's Lot," (included in his first collection of short stories Night Shift) which is, itself, a sort of prequel to the novel 'Salem's Lot.

The short story has also been included in certain editions of the 'Salem's Lot novel.

I caught the first episode during a free EPIX preview last month, and will eventually watch the series at some point.

I watched the first two episodes then decided that the setting and the slow pace were a better fit for my October horror view-a-thon so I'm just going to binge the rest then.
