This collection IS dark, but it's Stephen King, what do you expect?
Perhaps the best story in this collection is "1408," the titular source of the film featuring Samuel L. Jackson and someone else that I don't remember. One of the best "Haunted Room at the Inn" stories ever.
"THIS IS TEN! TEN! WE HAVE KILLED YOUR FRIENDS. EVERY FRIEND IS NOW DEAD."
