    What's your favourite film adaptation of a Stephen King novel?

    I will say "Shawshank Redemption" to maybe get it out of the way... and I do feel that it is, but I am a big admirer of the original "Carrie," "Stand By Me" and "Misery"... Actually "The Running Man" is good too! I could go on...

    I liked" "the stand" although it was long
    and "it" (I never walk on the drain grate since I watched this)

    For me it has to be Carrie with Sissy Spacek even though the remakes are good as well.  Did Stephen King write The Shawshank Redemption or just part of it like he did in Stand By Me?  I like that movie.

      Shawshank and Stand By Me are both based on novellas (the latter one called The Body) from his book of four novellas, Different Seasons - another book of his I really enjoyed..

    My favorite was "It". It's still a pretty scary movie even though it was a made for TV movie, without all the gore and violence. I heard they are remaking it soon, just like everything else. Wish all the executives who suggest these remake ideas "all floated down here".

    Shawshank Redemption, The Mist, and Misery are great too for there respective genre but It was what introduced me to Stephen King as a youngin'.

      Yeah I agree and like those and interesting to hear about the "It" remake- it probably will be a bit more gory and violent, wonder who will be Pennywise!
