Sinister director Scott Derrickson re-teams with Insidious producers to adapt Stephen King’s ‘The Breathing Method’





I liked Sinister, and I don’t mind saying so. I like Scott Derrickson’s way of directing, and with Sinister (review) and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, the director has proved he can certainly tell a story when it comes to horror. His skills will be well suited then, to adapt Stephen Kings The Breathing Method, and with the director re-teaming once again with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Insidious), we can most certainly get excited about this one!

The Breathing Method was a story which featured in Stephen King’s 1982 collection of stories called Different Seasons. Already three of the stories from the collection have been adapted into movies, and these include The Shawshank Redemption, Apt Pupil and Stand By Me.

While financing has yet to be agreed, Deadline reports that production  has secured an option on King’s work from the author, and the script will be written by Scott Teems.

The Breathing Method “ focuses on an elderly physician named Dr. Emlyn McCarron who recounts an incident in his career of a patient who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, despite her financial difficulties and the social stigma in the 1930s. The patient turns to the doctor because of the book he has written about the Breathing Method, a system to help women through childbirth. She grows close with the doctor, who finds that she is so determined to have the child through the method that she lingers on even after a horrific accident on the way to the hospital.“

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
