If you avoid reading a book just because you've seen the movie, you're going to miss a lot of excellent books.
I do know what you mean about the "pictures in the the head". I like to wait a while (preferably several months) between seeing a movie and reading the book. Better still, I prefer to read the book first. But I won't discard a book just because I've seen the movie.
