Creepshow!!!

Even though it was more of an adaptation to EC Comics of the 50s.

Agree, but autocorrect will wear you down.

Both Shawshank Redemtion and Stand By Me were from his collection of (4) short stories - Different Seasons, under the titles Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption (Hope Springs Eternal) and The Body (Fall From Innocence), with related season, respectively. Even The Mist is from a novella.

King liked Darabont's ending better, too.

The Stand used to be my favorite SK novel for the longest time. Rereading It right now, and there's a new number one. Maybe this will do:

1 It
2 The Stand
3 The Shining
4 'Salem's Lot
5 The Tommyknockers

I can appreciate both the Kubrick version and the book by King. I can easily watch the movie every year and still appreciate the amount of time and effort Kubrick put into that movie. People still talk about the movie 40 years since its debut in the threatre. And don't forget the numerous fan made videos on the movie.
