The issue with It, the remake of Stephen King's creepy adaptation that heightens everyone's inner fear of clowns, is that it's not the only adaptation from the King of Horror.

If anything, it's only the beginning of our big scares. Also debuting this year is The Mist, which already also has a trailer for its run in June.

That's not enough horror, I guess, because SciFi Now has recently confirmed that Sleeping Beauties is also headed to TVs. Apparently, Anonymous Content will be responsible for bringing the novel to life after winning the TV rights to the novel. For those who are not familiar with the title, Sleeping Beauties is actually co-written with his son, Owen. Talk about double horror.

If there was ever any consolation, at least the production will give us some time to rest. Sleeping Beauties will not yet arrive on bookshelves at least until September. But if you're excited to know a little background of what's to come, here's the synopsis to get your imagination going:

"In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleep they go to another place... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primal devices. One women, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain?"

As for the TV series, Michael Sugar is already tagged as producer with Ashley Zalta as executive producer. Anonymous Content is responsible for 13 Reasons Why, The OA, True Detective, and Mr Robot.
