Nice, but serious spoiler on the Shawshank Redemption one. If i saw this poster (before seeing the movie) and guessed the ending because of it....I'd be pissed.

It's a shame that Stephen King didn't like Kubrick's version. To me, It's still one of the best film adaptation of a King horror - along with Misery (that poster just evokes one of the most effective horror scenes ever!). So many of the other films have been awful.

should be noted that stephen king wanted nothing to do with Kubrick's version of the shining, who felt it was way too artistic to be considered an effective horror film. hence "Stabley Kubrick's: The Shining" not King's. unless its in reference to his TV movie version, which gave King a chance to change it back to the way he wanted

Stephen King:

"There's a lot to like about it. But it's a great big beautiful Cadillac with no motor inside, you can sit in it and you can enjoy the smell of the leather upholstery - the only thing you can't do is drive it anywhere. So I would do every thing different. The real problem is that Kubrick set out to make a horror picture with no apparent understanding of the genre. Everything about it screams that from beginning to end, from plot decision to the final scene - which has been used before on the Twilight Zone"

Hehe, good answer Alice. I actually watched The Shawshank Redemption but halfway through I fell asleep cause I was too tired. :P

You have to watch or read his books to know what they mean...that's the beauty of it! (Plus, if I try and explain certain ones (like the Shawshank Redemption) it'll spoil everything. :)

Minimalistic indeed! I never watched the Shawshank Redemption(or most of Stephen King's movies), so I don't know what that poster's supposed to represent. What does it mean?

I like the shining poster the best. Really cool!
