    I don't understand how some people don't like 1408. I loved it. Maybe it's because I didn't read the short story first?? Not sure how faithful it is as an adaption, but as a film, I think it's great.

    Probably. I like Dreamcatcher better than most here, and I suspect that's why.

    2) I go with hope that it won't suck, not to complain that it does.

    3) I will, however, complain if I feel it sucks - such as 1408. While it had some excellent effects and genuinely creepy moments, the needless additions immediately turned me off to the film, completely lowering its overall impact as a piece of art. Great story; mediocre film. Stop adding shit that just has mass and takes up space. WHY?!?! King's a better writer and has a better imagination than you. Stick to his bloody story.
    1) Looking at Which unadapted SK stories would you like to see? none of the prospects excites me.
    On the other hand, plenty of already-filmed stories besides PS could be done much better. That, I'm for.

    2) Totally. Again, I'm hopeful for a new PS, though I hope I'm not as disappointed as I have been by some awful remakes.

    3) King's "1408" wasn't long enough for a feature film. I do like outright creative adaptations more than strictly commercial filmings. (And as you know, I really dug the 1408 film.)

    I read Dreamcatcher first, and I still like the movie better than the novel. (Although I'm sure that you like both of them much better than I do.)

    I've found that as well; when I watch the movie version of a book and haven't read the book previously, it seems like I really like the movie while othes don't because they read the book first, had expectations, etc. Sometimes it's cool to read the book afterwards; it's an interesting change of pace.

    I thought the short story & the movie were both good.
    Both seriously give me the creeps.

    Default Del Toro wants to adapt It & Pet Sematary

    http://www.horroryearbook.com/541247...d-pet-sematary

    Last night, as part of the TimesTalks series at New York City’s TimesCenter, director Guillermo del Toro revealed that he would like to adapt Stephen King’s It and Pet Semetary in the future. The Hellboy director has a lot of projects lined up, including producing Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark and working on his adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness, it may be a long time before he gets to King’s works, if ever.

    Give him Rose Madder. There's no one else who could make anything good out of that.

    I don't think there's anyone who could make anything good out of any King - except probably Del Toro. I have some hopes... rather high, actually... especially for It.

    Del Toro. A director with such style and a love of monsters that he's one of the few directors I'd ever trust a Dr Who movie with. I'd love to see how he would handle IT!


    I help where I can.

    A Rose Madder by Del Toro would rock hard.

    Wolves would like another Pet Semetary, but would like to keep Jud Crandall (Fred Gwynne) from the first. And Pascow's wrecked body as a spirit was cool.

    Also, nobody gets to remake Pet Semetary 2 because it's a HOOT of a cheesy B-movie with an awesome zombie dog and Clancy Motherfucking Brown in it.

    LOL!

    Hey, isn't technology good enough to splice his performance from the first movie? We had Bogart endorsing Coca-Cola a decade ago, so surely we can pick out Jud Crandall and place him in the new movie.

    That'd save Del Toro the trouble of having to judge an old New Englander performance, but I imagine it'd be a little awkward for the other actors, and it'd leave the same taste in my mouth of not leaving the dead at rest. I guess they could CGI the entire new movie in around Gwynne and not bother with new actors at all, but that disturbs me even more. I guess I'm just not so sure of whether technology is good at all.
    Some say I'm a fool and I live in the past,
    but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast.

    No, you're absolutely right. I'm just being silly because I love Fred Gwynne and he was awesome.
