Top 10 Movies based on Stephen King Novels
Steven King is one of the best horror writers of all time and many of his stories have been adapted for film over the years. This is a list of the top 10 movies that are based on Steven Kings' novels; of course many of them do not follow the book exactly which is often the choice of the director to make it more dramatic or elucidate the story in a more fluid way.
For over 30 years King has been producing amazing fiction in 54 novels and more than 200 short stories. As a result many of them have been adapted into movies so the top 10 is a closely fought battle.
In researching for this list it surprised me how many great films I know of but didn't know were written by Stephen King.
