Which Stephen King movie do you think translated the best from book to film?December 31st, 2013 at 10:13 PM #1872
Unfortunately, I wouldn’t know as I’ve only ever seen the film adaptations and never read any of the books, blasphemy right?
I love everything, I mean everything that comes out based on a Stephen King story, but since I never actually read the originals can I call myself a true fan? While I’m sure he consulted on many of the projects to get certain details right, he only ever directed “Maximum Overdrive” himself and the most successful movie ever made based on a Stephen King story, “The Shining” (which I love), King apparently doesn’t even like what Kubrick did with it…

Well, time and agains, Stephen K has gone vocal about his criticism of the original Shining, the one with Nicholson. Also, IT’s original climax is far too dark to show on the silver screen so IDK if there’s anything that’s as canon as King would want it to be.
