My Top Ten Stephen King Movies

1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. Stand By Me
3. The Shining (even though Stephen King hates it)
4. The Green Mile
5. The Mist
6. IT
7. Pet Sematary
8. Carrie
9. The Dead Zone
10. ‘Salem’s Lot

Damn – had to leave out The Running Man. It was close! And Silver Bullet, which I probably only like because one of the two Coreys is in it. And Misery. And Maximum Overdrive which I probably only like for the soundtrack. I’ll shut up now.

  1. Pretty close to my own list, I think. I’d pull out The Mist, Pet Semetary and ‘Salem’s Lot, and pop in Misery, Running Man and Needful Things in their places, respectively. Even though we all know Running Man shouldn’t count. Oh wait, we’d need to fit Dolores Claibourne in there somewhere.

    Shawshank Redemption
    Stand By Me
    The Shining
    The Green Mile
    Misery
    Carrie
    Pet Semetary
    Running Man
    Needful Things
    Dolores Claibourne

    So, yeah… I guess that looks nothing like your list. 😛

    • I’d say our lists are pretty close! 🙂 I totally know Pet Sematary shouldn’t be quite so high but I have good high school memories of watching that with friends and making fun of it and quoting it for weeks afterwards. Not sure why Misery doesn’t quite make mine – it’s certainly one of the better ones.

      • Probably has something to do with Misery not really being a bad movie that’s fun to watch anyway. That’s clearly what 4 of the bottom 5 on my list are. Dolores Claibourne isn’t really *that* good, but it was filmed in Nova Scotia, and that raises it up a notch for any Atlantic Canadian.
