Carrie Underwood‘s “Two
Black Cadillacs”
video was just released, and already she’s thinking of how to make it into a movie. With Stephen King’s
blessing, of course. His 1980s best-selling book Christine was what inspired her idea to have the car actually do the
killing, just like the possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury does in King’s book. In the behind-the-scenes clip from the making of
her new video, Underwood talks about how she became such a fan of the horror genre. “I really don’t know why I’ve always loved
horror movies, but I know why I’ve always loved Stephen King. My mom was such a huge fan. I guarantee you she’s read everything
he’s ever written. I would borrow her books and read her books,” she says. “This is great reading for, like, you know, a grade-schooler,
right?” As for her movie idea, Underwood didn’t give specific details other than saying, “I did reach out to ask if [King]
might give his blessing.”
