Best Stephen King horror movies

List by yo-adrian

Stephen King has to be the most prolific writer of horror movies in the modern era. So many of his books (and even short stories) have been made it onto the big screen that his name has earned the title of the king of horror. One of his short stories, Children of the Corn, spawned 10 feature-length films (and another on the way). This list contains some of my favorite Stephen King adaptations.
