Button, Button

Those of you who read JACK WITH A TWIST know that I'm sort of obsessed with the short story Button, Button by Richard Matheson.

Okay, so maybe you didn't know that I was obsessed, but maybe you recall the story from the book. It comes towards the end, where Brooke is confused about everything, and her dad tells her about it: a couple gets a visit from a man with a box that has a giant red button on top. He tells them that if they push the button, they'll get one million dollars, but someone, somewhere in the world, will die-- someone they don't know....

There was a Twilight Zone episode based on the story, and there's been talk of a horror movie being made out of the short story, and the trailer's finally out! The movie's called The Box, and it looks completely terrifying. And awesome.

Check out the short story and then check out the trailer here on EW's site!
