Great choices Linda
Pet Sematary - love both the book & the movie. Disturbing but great - King said it was his most disturbing book.
Rose Madder - I never read it! I've heard it's really good though.
The Tommyknockers - Seen the film but I haven't read the book. I really want to now though, forgot about this one. Saw it years ago. The woman from CSI is in it I recall.
Misery - Love, love, love the book and the film. Kathy Bates is amazing in that role. She hates violence SO much she was crying in those scenes and had to be calmed down before the takes.
Firestarter - Love, love, love these. Book and movie too. Drew Barrymore is such a great actress - and it's really sad, but awesome. Apparently it's being re-made
Maria, I really like 'The Shining' too - I like most of King's stuff. Did you ever catch the movie version he wrote for TV? It was in two parts and was more true to the book. King said he never liked the Kubrick movie. It stars Rebecca De Mornay - it's good, but not as good as the Jack Nicholson version IMO.
Phyllis - I haven't read the Stand - and I only saw the first half of the movie
It's one of my best friends favorite books as well. I loved that movie though cos it introduced me to Crowded House and 'Don't Dream it's Over' - and I really love that song, have done ever since. I recorded the opening credits I remember, just to listen to the song over and over LOL
