    Totally agree. I have loved "Cell", "Under The Dome" and now "11/22/63."

    Speaking of King, I just bought the IT dvd, maybe it's on blu, lol, but anyways, I never saw it.

    But what I am more embarrassed about is that I never read the King novel.

    I consider it the best King novel I never read. Carrie, Misery, The Shining, The Stand, you get the idea, read 'em, but IT always alluded me. I have an online friend who reads IT every Summer. He thinks it's that good. Should watch the DVD and finally get a copy and read the novel.

    When I took a trip to Mexico, Cancun, haha, the airport had a Spanish version of IT named ES, haha! But weirdly enough they had a Spanish (!!) anthology of Lovecraft! I should had bought it for collector's sake.

    Maybe the same airport still has it. Anybody wanna buy me a ticket to Cancun, haha.

    SHAME on you. Outside of the STAND, IT is Kings best LONG/MULTI-CHARACTER novel. You NEED NEED NEED to read it.

    But I read the Stand so that counts for something, right? Haha.

    I do love reading, but some reason I have an aversion towards reading books that are considerably over 500 pages. Stephenson is an exception, and IT is a like a million pages long, well, okay, maybe 1000 plus pages. Plus a ****ing clown!! :O

    But ill get to the DVD and the movie. What do you think of the movie? It was made for telly, if my memory serves me right, but Pennywise?

    well...it's a mixed bag. They cast really well. BUT, if any Stephen King book suffers more from the 'it's not the destination, it's the journey' tag that King has been saddled with, you would be hard pressed to find it. AND the movie highlights it so much worse than the book. But man oh man...Tim Curry, Richard Thomas, John Ritter...as far as the casting, so good.

    So I just finished 11/22/63 and I loved it. Not as much as The Stand but it is very, very good.

    Orph you have got to read IT! This book is a very scary book - not as scary as The Shining - but right up there. I don't know about you jd but while reading IT I felt it was like a '50's monster movie or at least it had that feel. That made it that much better. You gotta read it bro! It is just a great ride. And Tim Curry was great as Pennywise.

    I will, just give me time!!!

    I came across this quote a few years ago in a book about horror.

    “Come on back and we’ll see if you remember the simplest thing of all – how it is to be children, secure in belief and thus afraid of the dark.”
    ― Stephen King, It

    That completely nails it. From the opening sequence of the story he manages to take you back to all the things that scared you as a kid.

    Anybody seen the Dolores Clairborne movie? I haven't, but it's now on my next to watch list after watching IT. Read the novel though, it's pretty good, and disturbing. :O
