As a best-selling horror author, Stephen King obviously knows the genre well and if he recommends a television series or Film, you can be pretty certain it’s going to be good.

This was the case recently when King headed to Twitter to recommend the zombie horror movie, “The Night Eats the World,” giving it a rave review as only he can. The film is set in Paris where a man wakes up after a wild party to discover a horde of zombies has invaded the streets.

If you think the topic has been a little overdone, what with “The Walking Dead” universe and all, apparently this film is really worth the watch on Amazon Prime.
