It follows the story of twins Becky and Cal, who encounter a tall field of grass from which a young boy calls for help. As ever in stories written by King (this time with his son, Joe), things go south—fast.
I’ll leave it at that, as uncovering any more would be an injustice to the nightmare the father-and-son duo is able to craft with this novella.
Natali has brought some respectable genre outings in the past, with Cube being his most known and in my opinion most inventive work. This is also not his first time tackling stories out of the Stephen-Tabitha woodwork; he’s directed two episodes of the forthcoming Locke & Key series, which was based on the Joe Hill supernatural comic book series.
