From Carrie to It, Stephen King has been scaring us for decades with his novels, and many of them have made it to the silver screen or television.

Halloween seems like the right time to share this movie list and if you are a big Stephen King too, you may want to make a note of some movies/shows to watch you might have missed.

There are a total of 60 films made thus far from Stephen King’s books. Here are the top 10 Stephen King adaptations according to IMBD. Of course, not all of them are horror films: Stand By Me and The Shawshank Redemption are great movies but wouldn’t be classified in the genre.

  1. Carrie
  2. Stand By Me
  3. The Dead Zone
  4. Gerald’s Game
  5. The Shawshank Redemption
  6. Misery
  7. 1922
