Stephen King Movies

Introduction:Many of Stephen King's novels and short stories have been turned into major motion pictures. Picking 5 is difficult but here are my choices.

  • 01

    Carrie

    1976's Carrie, starring Sissy Spacek, is the tale of a mousy girl with telekinetic powers. When her classmates embarrass her at the prom, she gets her revenge.

  • 02

    The Shining

    Jack Nicholson and Shelly Duvall play winter caretakers for a huge haunted hotel out in the middle of snowy Colorado. A classic movie, thanks in part to Jack's ability to portray a man who is slowly going mad.

  • 03

    The Shawshank Redemption

    This movie which starred Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman as two inmates who bond over years of imprisonment and finally find redemption is not the typical Stephen King movie. It is, one of my favorite films of all time.

  • 04

    The Green Mile

    The story about the lives of prison guards assigned to death row whose lives are changed when a black man who is sentenced to die for the rape and murder of a child shows them that he has a special power as a faith healer.

  • 05

    The Dead Zone

    Stars Christopher Walken as a man whose life is stolen while he is in a coma after an accident. He awakens to find that life has gone on without him but he now possesses the ability to see the future.




Final Thoughts

This was harder than I thought. Honorable mentions include "Dolores Clairborne", "Misery" and "Firestarter".

    I have to say that I more or less agree with all of your selections!

    This is a great list of Stephen King movies! I love all of these. My two personal favorites are not on your list though: "The Stand" and "Storm of the Century," but those are just my favs. "Shawshank Redemption" is on the favorite movies list of a LOT of people I know, and not just "favorite Stephen King movies" lists, but just favorite movies in general. Same with a lot of the others on this list. Once again, great list! Thanks for sharing the top five Stephen King Movies.

    I love Stephen King! "The Shawshank Redemption" proves to skeptics that King is not just some horror writer. Thanks a bunch.

    Great choices ! Steve King is amazing and I'm fortunate to have him as a "neighbor" where I live. He does fabulous things for the community.

    Love Stephen King movies! I will never forget the first time I saw the Shining. I was scared all night long!

  • DenaBolton 9/17/2010 Flag This Comment

    Personally -- I preferred the made-for-tv version of The Shining. Stayed truer to the book. Also, how could they have turned that topiary into a maze? The topiary was one of the scariest parts!
