Both Cujo and Pet Cemetery have aged horribly. I'd have taken those out and put in 1408. John Cusak owns in that movie. Plus it's got a mini Sam Jackson!

Good choices but...

I think Thinner should be up there. One of Joe Mantegna's best roles. I love that flick.

Top 10 not 12

Apt pupil and The Mist were both awful movies. The rest I agree with.

Nice list

I believe Shawshank is overrated, I've seen it on too many #1 lists now, but I wouldn't take it out of here. My personal favorite is The Dead Zone, glad to see it make top 5.

Well you got my top 2 right, but I say you have Carrie and Misery way too low . . . And Pet Semetary ages poorly by the second.

Not considered a movie, but "The Stand" was a great TV mini-series.
