A few good-to-great movies have been adapted from Stephen King's novels: Stanley Kubrick's “The Shining” (sorry, Stephen), Brian De Palma's “Carrie,” Rob Reiner's “Misery,” and Frank Darabont's “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Mist,” to name a few examples. And then there have been some…not so great ones.
My advice? A) Leave the good adaptations alone; B) Give the bad ones the stellar remakes they deserve.
As remakes of “It,” “Pet Sematary” and “The Stand” — all of which weren't exactly top-shelf the first time around — ramp up for new cinematic versions, here are six other King adaptations I'd like to see the powers-that-be take another swing at.
