There are so many wonderful, entertaining, and frightening Stephen King short stories. Stories such as, THE MIST, THE BODY, THE LIBRARY POLICEMAN, THE MONKEY, SURVIVOR TYPE, and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, just to name a few. Personally, I feel RAINY SEASON, is one of the top scary short stories King has ever written. When I heard I was getting the opportunity to see the adaptation of it, my expectations were very high , and I was NOT disappointed!
