I have to agree with this comment! Stephen King is the first name that popped into my head. In fact, it was only after watching a couple of his stories made into movies that I attempted to read those samegrammy57 wrote:Stephen King
stories (Thinner and The Langoliers). And I was really disappointed in the pace and style.
I am just glad that someone else took the time to imagine the plot and how it would play out on the big screen.
I might add that his physical presence, in my opinion, adds dark mystery to his work.
