Hmmm, The horror part throwing me off,
But I think the best film made of any of his stories would be "The Shining"(production wise)
As far as best translation from book to movie I would choose,
Thinner or the shortie "Smoke enders"

But Horror only?,,,,,,,,,,I'd go with "IT"

What say, Justin? Yeah...The Shining was my first exposure to anything King, way back when, 1980? Or was it a year or two later? Somewhere in there. Was over at the - The Library
Wondered if there was something there that provides a snapshot of all the movies, like there exists for the stories and sure enough. Thought there was another Shining movie too but it's not listed. User error maybe. Haven't seen all of the movies, only a fraction. Liked most of what I saw. Only saw a part of some movies 'cause I don't think to look in the TV Guide and when I do the clock says quarter after the hour, half past, and something is already playing. I liked Stand By Me, Langoliers. Langoliers. It. Are there any you'd recommend, gotta-see type of thing?

Not too sure how these work yet, but trying to get familiar with everything and, as usual, jumping into it head first. :) So.... Hey, y'all! What's all y'all's fave King/horror movie(s)?
Hey, welcome to the Forum man. I actually just posted about the movie in this same thread. I'd love to hear what your take on it is, as you mentioned it's one of your favourites.
