This perspective became obvious in the 1980s in movies that celebrated or examined nostalgia in generational cycles. Back to the Future, Peggy Sue Got Married, and Blue Velvet conflated time, blurring the boundaries of the generation "gap"; parents became adolescents again and vice versa, or the audience was invited to be a part of both generations at the same time (Blue Velvet). The conflation was uncannily pleasurable and sinister. Since the 1950s, American culture has looked back roughly two decades or a single generational span—with the 1950s retroactivated in the 1970s, the 1960s beginning in the 1980s, and the 1970s in the 1990s.

King embraces that confusion and contradiction in his horror fiction, which often reads as a scathing attack on the materialist culture of which it is a preeminent example.
