Arrow's TOP 6 KING films!

06.08.2009by: The Arrow

STEPHEN KING is hands down my favorite author. Every time I go on vacation, I bring a King book with me. It's just not full-on, hang-back time without the King tagging along! DESPERATION and CELL are the last two that I devoured and right now I'm in the process of finishing up DUMA KEY which is kicking my ass BIG TIME (it would make a great film in my opinion - hit it up Darabont!)!

And once I'm done with that sick puppy I'll be tackling LISEY'S STORY. Can't wait! Now a lot of films have been made out of King's novels/short stories and here are my 6 FAVORITE ones. I am not saying that they are the best, or the better received ones by the masses, just the 6 movies that I dug the most! Share with us your TOP 6 KING TO SCREEN adaptations below!

This scene from PET SEMETARY murders me every time...

THANK YOU MR. KING FOR ALL THE HORROR YOU GAVE AND STILL GIVE US! KEEP IT COMING!

Extra Tidbit: Every aspiring writer should read King's book about the craft: “On Writing” (get it here). It's an insightful and engaging read.
