 Tommyknockers would want to be be better than the terribly disappointing Under the Dome.

Should I pull out the tissues now or later?

 The Tommyknockers can only be an improvement over the original effort.  Such a good story, but the TV movie sucked hard.  Too many changes, and a really low budget.

Rosemary's Baby is one of the greatest horror movies of all time, IMO. Still, I'd be curious to see an updated remake.

Rosemary's Baby is a classic.  You cannot possibly duplicate the 70s sensibilities that helped channel the complete terror that the original induced.  Modern special effects and a new cast are not what the film needs.  Leave it alone, NBC!

As for Tommyknockers, I never saw the original film version, but I heard from friends that it was pretty bad.

Yes, Rosemary's Baby is the only one I think is universally considered a classic. But it is a book and I think any book can be remade. I haven't seen Tommyknockers in years but I know TimCurry's clown has filled a generation with horror.

They can go ahead and make new ones but I know when you are redoing a classic you are skating uphill into a headwind trying to get accepted.

I always did enjoy King's books.  However most of them would be very difficult to make into mini's.  Hey monkeyfoot, I think you confused Tommyknockers with It.  Tim Curry played Pennywise the Clown in It.  That is one of my personal favorites by King.  I just wish they could make a movie version of it with a big budget and a director who would keep it like the novel.

 booker, The stand was a very good adaptation as a mini, and followed the book pretty well. Ive never read tommyknockers so i might check that out. Done PROPERLY, The Dark Tower could be a successful franchise series (a la LOTR) however i seriously doubt itcwill evet happen.
