i'm a fan, so
this is a thread for general discussion...
My favourite authors are Ray Bradbury, Ira Levin, James Herbert and Ramsey Campbell. Also Robert Bloch.

i'll update this regularly.

and yes this DOES belong in the Pit, as horror is the Big Mac and fries of literature.

mmyes.. although it's odd, i prefer Danse Macabre and Christine to his classic work...lol

what's DK like? i heard a fan of SK badmouthing Dean Koontz, the way a Tool fan would badmouth Limp Bizkit, and i don't know what to think....

isn't that a classic work? tho a didn't mean any period of time, he's just old i guess
My three fav SK: Christine, Green Mile, From A Buick 8


It's ...different, not the same kind of atmosphere, and yes, Stephen King vs Dean R. Koontz is a big Rock/Rap deal.

i dunno, people seem to diss Christine, which i can sort of understand, as its the least sophisticated of his novels. But i like me some junk food. Just finished It, by the way. What a mother of a book.

Dl'ed the Works of H.P.L. so i'll be busy for a while now

I find it quite astonishing how you managed to post this if the site is just a man with a beard.

update:

i like a LOT of horror novels, but i'm quite inexperienced in the films. can anyone recommend any?
#21
The Omen, Savage Messiah(not the 1972 one...quite intense and based on a true story), Maniac, Evil Dead(kickass movie), *Almost Anything* of the Dead.

Good movies based on a Stephen King's book:
-Christine
-Misery
-Carrie

Bad movies based on a SK's book:
-Maximum Overdrive
-Thinner
-The Mist

Can't believe this thread actually exists.

Anyway, I was wondering if anybody'd like to discuss the three major monster archetypes used commonly in horror:

The Undead/Outide Evil.

The Wild Talent/Inside Evil.

The Thing Without A Name/Animal Evil.

Thoughts?

The Stand and The Dark Tower are by far King's best works.

how do you mean 'matches up'? like syncs up? or that the original is better?

i personally think the original is too long, still damn good tho. th remake is damn good too, but its dratically different, they should have given it a different name, and said 'based on Dawn..."

also, has anyone seen 'Day of the Dead 2:Contagium'? my god that was an abortion...


I Animals!!! They're Delicious!!!
