Cat's Eye (1985)
This film comprises three stories, "The Ledge", "Quitters, Inc.", and "General". The first two are adaptations of short stories in King's "Night Shift" collection, and the third is unique to the film.

THE NOVELLAS WIN.
The movie is not so bad by the way.
I found the "General" episode really nice. The screenplay of that have been written by Stephen King and the story is really in King's style.
You can also find there a really young Drew Barrymore.
