  • Zach Gorski  (Dec 30, 2018)

    It Misery

  • Vicente Ortega Rubilar  (Oct 10, 2018)

    I really liked the list....buuuut...WHERE IS THE MIST???.

  • Austin Hunter  (1 day ago)

    It wasn’t a bad movie but it wasn’t as memorable as the other King movies, because most of it is what we all saw before. The ending was incredible, and the religious woman, but we already saw it before on other movies.

  • Omgosh right!

    I will forever love King. He has written some stinkers but when he hits a home run he really shakes the whole field.

  • Ethan Baker  (Jan 27, 2019)

    +Elias Ruiz Diaz So people that acknowledge the fact that King has written both good and bad books, have only read a single book? Fuck off dude. You just sound super douchey, and quite frankly you sound like an idiot.

  • pi_ beta  (Dec 6, 2018)

    +Elias Ruiz Diaz I'm dying to read your own personal works. Please share. Thanks.

    Aw come it had a good story and fun and relatable characters. Now I’m not saying that it doesn’t have it’s flaws, but the good outweighed the bad

  • djhenyo  (Jan 18, 2019)

    That movie fucking sucked! I was actually speaking in protest to my computer monitor when Doug got to #2 on the list, and by the time his announcement of #1 started I was cursing at him with ill intent. While I don't think Creepshow should have been at the top, I'm glad that it was on the list and super glad that The Green Mile was totally absent.

  • Erebos  (Oct 15, 2018)

    You talk about misery without even a short glimpse of hyper fangirl? How.. Disappointing ;)

  • Mikael Kuutti  (Oct 13, 2018)

    Whenever it cuts to 'Hallelujah', I automatically think of Nick Cage headbanging in the priests robe in Face Off... The image is permanently etched in my brain.

  • The Algerian  (Nov 14, 2018)

    I usually think of angel Carl Winslow and I usually expect the music to cut at the moment angel Carl Winslow makes the "cut it out" gesture.

    so it's not just me?Good to know

  • Nathan Crossen  (Oct 18, 2018)

    SO Pet Semetary is getting an OLD VS NEW... right?

  • KuroNoTenno  (Jan 31, 2019)

    +MandelaButterfly Do we actually need a new one? The old one is so freaking good.

  • MandelaButterfly  (Oct 24, 2018)

    He might do that. But the new one has to come out first.

  • Pikagirl541  (Oct 15, 2018)

    I decided to have a little fun with the number 1408 by adding the numbers until I get a single digit.1 + 4 + 0 + 8 = 13Thirteen is possibly the most famous unlucky number, but we're not done.1 + 3 = 4Four is considered unlucky in China because it sounds like death. (Google it if you don't believe me)So intentionally or not, 1408 is a pretty unlucky number.

  • Dawn Weed  (Jan 17, 2019)

    Also, 13 is unlucky so you could have let it there.

  • bookreader1997  (Dec 31, 2018)

    You should not see the number 23

  • Brady Rieger  (Oct 18, 2018)

    Green mile is better than an honorable mention

    Го на персиках лолиться? Или зассал?)
