13/13 It would have been better if they didn't make the answers so obvious. I mean, seriously...some of the other choices were just ridiculous.

It's funny because I'm not a horror fan, but many of these films were pretty EPIC that I remembered the themes and names.

13/13, used to be a big Stephen King fan, not so much anymore. His collection of short stories, Graveyard Shift, was excellent.

No clue. These may be the same who dress up their small dogs, too.

I got them all and the funny thing is out of all the 13 mentioned, I have only seen five. The rest I kind of heard about.

Several of the adaptations here are quite good.

I also love the television mini-series of "Salem's Lot" from the seventies. I particularly like James Mason as Straker, and of course, Mr. Barlow.

13/13! Technically, 10 is credited to Richard Bachman, KIng's alter ego!
