There were horror writers before Stephen King, and there will almost certainly be horror writers after Stephen King, but there will never be another writer as able to capture the world's imagination so thoroughly with his ability to terrify in one moment and inspire hope in the next.
Not only has King written nearly 90 bone-chilling and engrossing books in his decades-long career, his work has also been adapted for film or TV nearly 80 times.
Of course, the problem with adapting a book to film is that the film version rarely lives up to the book.
With that said, out of nearly 80 adaptions, a few have to go right sometimes. While its too soon to say how The Stand will fare, we can recommend these 10 movies, which we consider the best Stephen King movies ever made.
6. Stand By Me (1986)
Based on King's 1982 novella, The Body, Stand By Me follows a group of young boys as they search to find the dead body of one of their peers. It's a moving coming-of-age story that forces viewers to reconsider the very concept of innocence. It received rave reviews at the time of its release and was even nominated for an Academy Award and two Golden Globes.
