How about the movie of The Shining?

Even my brother who doesn't like King's books liked that one.


I will take his word on that one. The movies I saw as a teenager I never went back and read the books. Movies like Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Creepshow, Cujo, The Dead Zone, Christine, Children of the Corn, Firestarter, Maximum Overdrive, Stand By Me, The Hitchhiker, The Running Man .............

Holy crow, I thought I read a lot of Stephen King books, but now that I list them out, I really cannot speak about comparing the old movies to the books.:lol:

Apart from a handful of movies, King's books they're based on are tons better. Sadly, Bag of Bones was no exception. A great book, a very mediocre adaptation.

I wasn't too impressed with this mini-series. I liked the book and this was just slow and went for cheap jolts. It got marginally better as it went on though, imo.
