Walpuski's Typewriter by Frank Darabont
A failed writer, Howard Walpuski, has his typewriter repaired by a strange fellow with tendencies toward the supernatural. A deal is struck and Howard's writing finds success...but at what price?
This is a pretty typical sell-your-soul-get-screwed story. I thought it might be clever since it was written by Darabont. I really love his movies. It's not clever. It's straight out of the early Steven King school of horror stories. I can see now why he likes to direct stories by King so much. He loves the guy. I'm glad it was short.
