To see Vivian Kubrick's unforgettable documentary, Making The Shining, go here
Below is part one of my three-part 1979 interview with Stephen King as it appeared in the January 1980 issue of Heavy Metal. This was the debut of the Heavy Metal columns. I was told to devise a column name that was something unique, never before associated with films. After rejecting a few possibilities, I coined the word "Flix" as the title. It was a word I had never seen anywhere. Prior to January 1980, there was "flicks" but no "flix". Perhaps I should have trademarked it, eh?
Correction: Other sources say the Stanley that evening had taped orchestral music, not a live band.
