The Ultimate Stephen King Fan: Jennifer Ross

Age: 35

Profession: Project Manager in the Tech Industry

There are only two things that scare Jennifer Ross: Spiders, and clowns. So naturally, one of her favorite Stephen King movies is IT. “Tim Curry’s portrayal of Pennywise was magnificently terrifying,” she says, “and for most people I know, including myself, created some sufficient nightmares.” Ross says that what attracts her to King’s movies is the author’s ability to create such rich characters and environments, especially in dealing with the theme of isolation. “The Shining, Misery, the idea of total isolation, of that moment when reality and fantasy blur and you don’t know what’s real anymore, that always gets me, ” she says. Though she claims never to have done anything fan obsessive towards King, Ross says she is always first in line for his newest book or film adaptation, and admits that his work would make her think twice about going on a secluded trip in the woods. “I think there are moments in all our lives where we feel like we are trapped in some surreal place or surrounded by crazy people,” Ross explains. “Fortunately we don’t have to battle demon clowns before we go home.”
