I just couldn't resist. :-)

To take your joke seriously: Yes, Stephen King does does have an intimate knowledge of these subjects. He is extremely well-read in horror literature, and knows what others have done before him. Just as importantly, he is very aware of popular North American culture, which is as much a part of his success as the horror elements (in my opinion, even more).
