I'm watching Carrie on tv right now, think it's on USA channel. Was actually one of the better movies made out of his books, I think anyway. As far as my favorite book, liked a lot of his old stuff, think I'd have to go with Salem's Lot with the vampires. But after seeing other posts, I'll probably change my mind lol...

He wrote a few books as Richard Bachman One was the running man, it turned into a move with Arnold S. another one of them was The Long Walk. It is one of my all time favorites

I'ma real big fan of "The Stand". I've read most of his books at least twice, many of them three times or more. My next two favorites would probably be "The Eye of the Dragon" and "The Shining". He's only put out one or two books that I thought were sub-par, but that's only because they differed from his usual style; if they had been written by someone else, I probably would have liked them better.

Eye of the Dragon, sounds familiar can't remember that one though. I really started disliking his stuff, like you said sub par, the one with the girl and the baseball player-can't think of it. But just before that time, seemed to me they were just blah. Thanks!!

I used to read all of his books years ago, then I started reading Dean Koontz. I have not read either in years. I don't remember. Not good.

I did the same, got into reading Dean Koontz for awhile. Had read all of the Stephen King ones at the time. Same here, haven't read any for awhile. Not much relaxing time for reading lately. Thanks!

I liked IT. I never got through the book, but the movie scared the pants off me! I got a compilation of novella's of his once and it had most of my favourites in; The body (made into movie 'Stand by me') Apt Pupil The shawshank redemption and another I can never remember. I really liked all of these movies when they were made because they stayed very faithful to the books. I think the shawshank redemption is my favourite story of all time.

See? I'd forgotten all about those! Those were great movies too. Guess most of his movies weren't that bad. I just keep thinking about some of the more scarier ones, they ended up kinda cheesy as movies. You definitely need to finish reading IT. Book was much better, they way he described everything...gave you the chills lol. I liked a lot of his short stories as well, the Night Shift book was also good. Thanks for replying!!

LOL because there's so many he wrote, I forget lol. Green Mile was a very very good book, and the movie was pretty good also. Pet Semetary and The Shining were good also, but I didn't care too much for Pet Semetary the movie. Thanks for replying!!

I have a hard time choosing, but I think I liked the Dark Tower series the best, it was just such a great story.

I haven't read all of his books but I can tell you the movies I like of his. I liked Carrie and Misery. I just bought the new dvd set of Dreamscapes and Nightmares. Also loved Kindom Hospital. Always try to catch his stuff when I can.
