Stephen King has long been a fan of the cinematic experience, even writing a book about movies (Danse Macabre). Give it a read someday.

Anyway, recently he’s mentioned in various interviews different movies he’s enjoyed and recommended. The bolded titles are ones that I’ve seen. He’s got some unexpected titles in there that are worth checking out.

  1. I’ve seen Blair Witch Project (4/10, the Scooby Doo parody was better), The Changeling (7/10), Crimson Peak (6/10) Dawn of the Dead (5/10, prefer original), Duel (9/10, one of Spielberg’s great hidden classics), Final Destination (5.5/10, stupid, gory fun), Event Horizon (6/10), The Hitcher 1986 (6.5/10), The Last House on the Left (haven’t seen it in a while, so no rating), Night of the Demon (7.5/10), Sorcerer (7.5/10, a forgotten gem), Stepfather (same with LHotL) Village of the Damned (8/10, definite recommend for horror fans) and The Witch (6/10, highly stylized and creepy, but never got into it).

    This has gotten me in the mood for Christine (my favorite of the King film adaptations). Many say Misery or The Shining, and yeah I enjoy them, but something about Christine has always connected with me. One of my absolute favorite films with Fargo, Empire Strikes Back, True Romance and Dark Star.
