*Stand By Me adapted from his novella The Body
*Shawshank Redemption adapted from his novella Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption
*The Shining
*Christine
*Pet Semetary
*Maximum Overdrive adapted from his short story *Trucks
*The Running Man
*Carrie

My last two were both made into TV mini-series

*The Stand
*It

I've always wished that he would make his novella The Long Walk into a movie.

I couldn't ever list them in order. I do prefer reading the books, I find some of the film interpretations a bit dodgy. Although since he has had more and more input in them, they are alot closer to the books.

Princess Pooh... I agree. I am a big King fan and the books are great. If I had to list movies I would say:

Children of the Corn
Silver Bullet
Chattery Teeth (From Quicksilver Highway w/Mick Garris)
The Langoliers
Apt Pupil
Pet Sematary
It
Dreamcatcher
The Black Cat (Short in Tales from The Darkside: The Movie)
Stand By Me

Of course I like them all...but these are my favs.

10. Stand By Me - Because Mighty Mouse is a cartoon. Superman's a real guy. There's no way a cartoon could beat up a real guy.
 -

9. Firestarter - Because Charlie will burn it down baby. Burn it all down.


8. Salem's Lot - Because this dude is seriously creepy...I don't care who you are!

 -

7. Creepshow - Because this one had a tone all it's own. Reminds me of Halloween night no matter when I watch it.


6. Children of the Corn - Because I live in Illinois...and there's corn everywhere! Yikes!

5. Carrie - Because of this guy!

 - [Razz]

4. Maximum Overdrive - Because of Emilio, the Green Goblin and one of the very best movie soundtracks. Ever.

 -

Bonus points as The King himself directed it.

3. The Dead Zone - Because I don't remember the last time I saw a bad movie starring Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen or Tom Skerritt...much less all three in one!

2. Christine - Because it was made by the master during a time when he could do no wrong. Man I hated that Buddy. Plus, have you ever looked at this car since and thought of anything else when you saw it? Nope.

1. The Shining - Because this isn't a Stephen King movie. It's a Stanley Kubrick and Jack Nicholson movie and when you start trying to picture scenes in your head, they come back to you pretty quick...and don't leave.

Just watched one I hadn't seen in years and hasn't been mentioned in here yet, The Dark Half. It's a good story, it just isn't done terribly well. The ending really is something else tho hehe
