And although it was only released as a TV two-part special, The Stand (my favourite King book) was excellent.

Carrie and The Dead Zone were ok.
Watched the movies and enjoyed them, could never really get into the books, I think I'm just not really a fan of the horror genre.

Great point about movie remakes being awful!

The Italian job, the Ladykillers, Brighton Rock to name just a few

The film adaptation, 'Bend over and Spread 'em' (Sullivan Films...1978) is a fucking load of old shyte barely raising a stirring when I had the old chap out and prepared in the Eros Cinema Soho prior to me being thrown out.
Good job I'd finished me coffee before getting to this post. It would have been all over the dog and carpet otherwise. Verry funny :lol:

Watched it on one of the favorite streaming platforms and could not believe how absolutely crap it was compared to the story told in the book.

Any others?
Have you seen the original IW? I haven't seen the 2017 version but the Mcqueen and Hoffman one is pretty good. Well it was at the time :)

Might be an idea to reopen Devils island to accommodate illegal immigrants.

How about mildly peckish crocodiles and green ants. That way hopefully the crocs take a bit longer to lunch then all up

Too small. We need to re-annexe Australia and send the 5 million HK Chinese that Boris is so keen to accommodate there.
