      Channel Awesome I personally find it funny how Creepshow is at the top (and I do agree out of having a bias that it's one of my favorite 80's horror movies) when Stephen King is only just **ONE** of the horror giants to work on the film via screenplay writing!
      Aside from him, you have George Romero directing and Tom Savini in the make-up and special effects department, along with a great talented cast and one of the earliest nods to the EC comics style. Also, as a fun little bit of trivia, the kid from the bookends parts of Creepshow is Stephen's son that'll soon grow up to be another horror writer, Joe Hill! 🤓🤓🤓🤓🤓

    Christine ought to be worth mentioning - it is Maximum Overdrives less zany but more brainy little sister, after all.

    Wow, I didn't expect number 1. I thought it would be Green Mile. I agree with you though.

    How could you not have Green Mile in the top 11? When you hit the top 3 I was sure it would be in there, maybe even be #1.
