    I read that last night. Too bad. I like horror movies and he was good at what he did.

    Is it me, or did he have some facial features similar to Robert England (Freddie from N on ES)?

    I saw this post on either Facebook or Instagram, but it is yet another shame we've lost someone so brilliant.

    Like when we lost Christopher Lee.

    Agreed! I swear I thought that man was going to live forever. He was an icon.

    I concur. I, too, thought he was going to live a bit more longer. It truly is a shame that we end up losing those we love the most. :(

    Not quite as good as Stephen King, but I enjoyed his work a lot

    Stephen King was an okay writer. I never liked his stuff too much, but he is okay-ish.

    *Gasp!*

    Okay, he's no Edgar Allen Poe but he was influenced by him. And he writes a scary story that holds you to the end, even though the ending is sometimes hard to swallow.

    And we can debate the 1,000 pages he could have taken out of The Stand and still had the same story. My theory: he was contracted to write x number of pages.

    Love reading his books but think he is a really lousy screenwriter and cameo actor.
