“You guys wanna go see a dead body?” Based on a short story by Stephen King (“The Body”) and filmed near Brownsville, Oregon, Stand by Me chronicles a 1950s coming-of-age moment for four boys (Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O’Connell) who go from boys to men while on a Labor Day weekend outing to find the dead body of a missing classmate rumored to be in the woods.
