Carrie White Will Always Have My Vote


With all due respect to directors Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, Tobe Hooper, and John Carpenter, no one will ever equal Brian De Palma's take on Stephen King to my eyes.
So I was disappointed that CARRIE didn't win this weeks poll, but seeing THE SHINING at the top of the list was not surprising.
Thanks to everyone who voted in this weeks poll. It was a lot of fun, and the results are most interesting.

STEPHEN KING: BEST FILM ADAPTATION (1976-1986)

1. THE SHINING: 25 Votes
2. CARRIE: 24 Votes
3. THE DEAD ZONE: 20 Votes
4. STAND BY ME: 16 Votes
5. SALEM'S LOT: 15 Votes
6. CHRISTINE: 13 Votes
7. CUJO: 10 Votes
8. CAT'S EYE: 9 Votes
9. MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE: 8 Votes
10. CHILDREN OF THE CORN: 8 Votes
11. FIRESTARTER: 6 Votes

Thanks again to everyone who participated. I will start a new poll either later tonight or in the morning.

There have been some really great film versions of Stephen King' novels I've always had a special place for Carrie. What a great film.
