Was it this one, Tery? This is a weird (good) one. All I hear is creepy music with the sound of a bug swarm turning into some weird kind of laughter.The elevator full of blood really stayed with me because that trailer was the first I saw of the movie. Whatever one thinks of the film, that image is brilliant.

If by worst you really mean improves upon the book in every way imaginable.
Despite what King claims, bipolar Jack does not make the character more "complex." Jack's steady mask of sanity slip due to isolation is much better than him going off due to a newspaper scrap book. The book's ending is further proof of how poor King is with capping things off. With its childish big explosion action sequence and lame afterword sentimentality. There's a reason why the movie is constantly listed as better than the source material.
I know fans take every word of King's as gospel and he certainly has lots of incredible ideas, but the truth of the matter is those gems need lots of polish as well.
