Director Statement

What appealed to me about "Suffer the Little Children" is that, like Stephen King's best works, it focuses on a complex and interesting character. And in bringing this story to screen I wanted to make this film in the tradition of classic psychological thrillers where character and story are more important than over-the-top visual effects. The result is a film inspired by Stephen King's story; not a literal adaptation but rather a film that compliments the original work.
