  • Well, the thing is, I'm a HUGE Stephen King fan and the original movie hardly followed the book at all. I was so disappointed with it. But if you haven't read the book, then the movies pretty good and yes, Jack Nicholson is very scary. The remake followed the book much better but the actor who played the kid wasn't very good.

  • Original. Anything with Jack Nicholson is worth it.
