IT. Still freaked out by clowns They're unnatural.
BOB from Twin Peaks (the great TV series or the awful movie). Scared the crap out of me.
[quote]Pennywise was scary in the book. In the made for tv movie, not so much.
R9, I may have been influenced by the book. IT was scary, at least in the kid chapters. I still think Tim Curry was frightening in the kid portion of the movie/mini-series.
[quote]I was so disappointed because I always thought that It had the makings of a very scary and entertaining motion picture.
It's always hit and miss with Stephen King adaptations. Some of them are great, some just awful and some - like IT for me, are mixed.
Shelley Winters in anything.
Another vote for Mick Taylor (Wolf Creek).

The main vampire in SALEM'S LOT.
Anton Chigurh's haircut.
Lucille Ball in "Mame" *shiver*
R18, Fiennes was sexy in that dreadful, sentimental film. Spielberg cast him for what he said was his "evil sexuality".
Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh in "No Country for Old Men."
I agree with you about Stephen King's books being difficult to adapt for the screen. IT, the book, really scared the shit out of me. Of course, it petered out at the end, and I really didn't like what IT turned out to be. But the book grabs you from the first page and I think I finished the book in three days. It reminded me of my own childhood memories. He really knows how to tap into the collective subconscious.
Meg Ryan in Sleepless in Seattle.
Beth Jarrett in Ordinary People.
