You must be one of those that doesn't consider Kubrick's The Shining and King adaptation?

I was in a hurry and so I didn't remember to post The Shining.

The book It made it difficult for me to walk home alone at night.  I decided to forego the movie.

The Good:
The Shining (1980)
Stand By Me
The Shawshank Redemption
Misery
The Dead Zone
Carrie (1976): I am mixed, it didn't hold up well on my last re-watch, especially the split screen prom scene.  But Sissy Spacek was great in this overall as well as the mother
Pet Sematary - this usually gets panned but I remember enjoying it though I haven't seen it in a long long time


The Bad:
Creepshow
Christine
The Running Man
The Mist
Cat's Eye
Secret Window


The Shit:
The Lawnmower Man
Firestarter
Creepshow 2
Cujo
Children of the Corn
Maximum Overdrive:
