I grew up with a mom who read all the time. One of the authors I took note of was Stephen King. While I have not read too many of his books I have watched pretty much anything they made into a movie. Some are better than others but I always enjoy them. Too bad no one puts him in the movie like they used too. That was part of the fun looking for Mr. King.
Here are a few of my favorites...
Christine - 1983
Let's just start with the best. I simply adore this movie. I try to only watch it once a year around Halloween to keep it special. The music, the cars, the time periods and oh, that John Stockwell. What a cutie!
The Shinning - 1980
The TV mini series is also great. Very faithful to the story and set at the hotel that inspired the book. It's hard to step into such iconic shoes but I think Steven Weber did an awesome job in the lead role.
Carrie - 1976
A young River Phoenix, Kiefer Sutherland and John Cusack. Wonderful music, cars and time period. It's a true treasure. If you haven't seen it or it's been awhile treat yourself to a viewing. The language gives it it's R rating but it's such a great film.
