Riding the Bullet
This novella inspired a low budget film version in 2004, but it wasn’t great. Heck, it wasn’t even good. But the novella is a fantastic, creepy little tale about decisions, fear and death. In classic King fashion, its wrapped up in the guise of something more mundane (in this case, hitchhiking) and has a man facing the mortality of his loved ones. If done right, with a better cast and screenplay, this could be a fantastic little flick.
