Thad Beaumont is the author of a highly successful series of violent pulp thrillers written under the pseudonym of ‘George Stark’, but when he decides to ‘kill-off’ his alter-ego in a mock ceremony, it precipitates a string of sadistic murders matching those in his pulp novels, which are soon discovered to be the work of Stark himself. Looking like a maniacal version of his counterpart, Stark is not so willing to quit the writing game – even if it means coming after Thad's wife and their baby.The Dark Half featuring Timothy Hutton and Amy Madigan is streaming with subscription on Cinemax (Via Prime Video), available for rent or purchase on Microsoft Store, and available for rent or purchase on VUDU.
