Steven King - what's the most controversial scene from his books?
For me it was the pre-teen gang bang in IT. Just seemed gross and unnecessary to me.

"IT" when the little girl has sex with all the little boys before they confront the monster. I wonder what was going through his head when he thought that up. He shouldve left it out.

So you think the same way. Was there outcry about this scene when IT came out? IT was wildly popular for a summer. Yet when I read IT a couple years back this scene shocked me.

Same here.

I was a kid when I read that.
Little Georgie getting his arm torn off I could handle, but that scene I was like "gross".

As an adult when I look back now I'm like "wtf?!" I mean, what was the justification for the scene anyway?
As I recall it was the girls idea... What was the motivation?

He's a shitty writer and a liberal to boot. His work is on par with low grade action/adventure stories in old porn mags.

"Dirk Rockchest slid down the stiff rope. It reminded him of his first pubescent erection. He landed deftly on the deck of the rocking tug. There Gracie Lee Redbush sat in the chair, bound with electrical tape. The tape like his dad used to fix mom's old lamp. Gracie's ample bust heaved...."

My mind went right to the "It" scene though I never found it particularly controversial. Bevvie was kinda the focal point of the boys in the group, and she was a sexually abused girl, and the thrill of the danger, the need to be together, forever, in case this ever happened again, etc.

Call it instinctual Magick.

King admits to using cocaine a great deal during those years.


I must say I enjoyed the reads. Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

The only decent novel by King is "The Shining" and even in it he talks about making love to a corpse and graphic homosexual encounters.

Re: Steven King - what's the most controversial scene from his books?
EVERY MANIFESTION OF "IT" A.K.A PENNYWISE, READS LIKE THE FILM CATALOG FOR UNIVERSAL. WHAT KING IS IMPLYING ABOUT WHAT WAS 'EATING' KIDS IN THE LATE 5O'S IS A "METAPHOR"

The forms of It

Below are a list of forms taken by the shape-shifting creature:

Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Its primary disguise. Mainly used when hunting children. Carries balloons often.)
George Denborough, when Bill examines his brother's photo album
Dorsey Corcoran's re-animated corpse and The Creature from the Black Lagoon, when pursuing Eddie Corcoran

The voice of Betty Ripsom, one of Its victims, overheard by Betty's parents through a drain to taunt them

A giant bird, inspired both by a crow that attacked Mike Hanlon as a baby and also Rodan, a giant pteranodon featured in a Japanese horror movie from 1957, when pursuing Mike Hanlon (oddly, It also appears as a giant bird to Will Hanlon, Mike's father, thus making him one of the few adults who can see It)

The Werewolf, when It encounters Richie & Bill (wearing a Derry High School blazer inspired by the 1957 horror film, I Was a Teenage Werewolf)

The Leper, when Eddie first encounters It under the porch of the house on Neibolt Street

A mummy. Ben Hanscom recalls seeing a mummy walking along the frozen canal towards him. It carries balloons that float against the wind.

The Eye, when encountering the Losers under the city
Alvin Marsh, Beverly's abusive father, as she is terrified of him

A swarm of leeches, when attacking Patrick Hockstetter

A swarm of piranhas, when Eddie is frightened of crossing the stream

The shark from Jaws, seen by a boy named Tommy Vicananza in the Derry canal in 1985

Dracula, seen by Ben in the Derry library in 1985. It does not look like any of the traditional variations of Dracula, but rather looks Kurt Barlow from King's own Salem's Lot: very old and with razor blades for teeth. He asks Ben: "What did Stan see before he committed suicide?" The vampire then chops down his mouth and causes his lips to split open and bleed on the floor.
