One of the best storyline I've ever seen, along with a cliff-hanger ending. Most of King's books are like that. I love them <3

Dream Catcher is my favorite by him, followed by The Stand. I've never read From a Buick 8.

You should read From A Buick 8. It's an amazing story that will keep you guessing. The Stand was good, I actually cried at the end. First movie to ever make me cry.

I haven't read much of his. I've read Cell, mainly because I'm the zombie expert and had no choice, and while it started great, it kinda fell apart when the last third of it rolled around.

Other than that, I have enjoyed the movies The Shining, Creepshow (Though that was mostly due to George A Romero's influence), The Mist, the Green Mile, and The Shawshank Redemption. I especially enjoyed all of those, but The Mist is my favorite by far.

Ok, 3 questions for you Ash.
1. Which Shining did you see?
2. Do you know what The Shawshank Factor is?
3. It's never lupus!

2. No, and the first result for "THe Shawshank Factor" on google was your post.
3. Indeed.

1. Was it the first one, or the second one?
2. The Shawshank Factor is when you own an amazing movie, but you never decide to watch it until it's on TV.
3.You see the episode when the guy gave himself a circumcision?

Never read the book, I'll look into it though, since I recently got a great taste for his books.
What's it about?

1. Stanley Kubrick only directed one, Krystal.
2. Ah. Well, there aren't any movies like that for me, so whatever.
3. Yup.

1. There were two Shinings made. Was it the first one or the second one?
2. It's pretty funny that my post is the first link on Google.
3. I lol'd when he wouldn't let the nurse check him out.

1. THE FIRST ONE. No shit, the first one was the only one Kubrick directed.
2. Not really. It just means that that's not a very common term.

The Shawshank Factor doesn't exist.

I think you're thinking of The Shawshank Redemption.
