Stephen King Meets Norman Bates! week continues at Trailers from Hell, with Mick Garris introducing his own 2004 horror thriller "Riding the Bullet," which he adapted from King's novella of the same title.

By the time he directed this dark thriller Mick Garris had become a Stephen King specialist. King’s pioneering work was the world’s first mass-market electronic book, sold for downloading at $2.50. 400,000 copies were downloaded during the first 24 hours. Even so, this film version received only a token theatrical release.
