Yeah, somehow the horror of a Stephen King book doesn't translate well to screen. I think it's because much of the strength of his writing comes from characterization, and either that's hard to get across in a horror story, or the directors just don't have the vision to get 'er done.
Anyway, here's another vote for Shawshank Redemption and also one of my favorite (and most underappreciated, at least by the critics) authors of all time, Stephen King.
