Yours can be in order or in no order.

The only top Stephen King films I've personally enjoyed are these they're just not '09 films, and they are.

- Creepshows 1 and 2

- Cujo

- Children of the Corn pt.1

- Stand by me

- Pet Sematary


Special mention:

- The Mist

Carrie is my all time favourite film based on a King book.

The Mist, and The Shining are other favourites.

Other films are not in the Horror world, unless you count Misery.

That's because it's not a Horror film.

What about Misery?

I'd put Cujo on my list but I actually felt bad for the dog so...

For me:
IT
The shining
Children of the Corn
Carrie

2. The Shining

5. The Mist

IT reigns supreme as far as I'm concerned.

I also liked Salem's Lot, Pet Cemetary, 1408, Cujo, Thinner, and The Shining obviously.

As far as horrors go no1 has to be The Shining. It's not just the best Stephen King based film it's one of the greatest horror movies ever made. An absolute masterclass.

Storm of the Century. Andre Linoge is one of my favourite villains of all time. Brilliantly played by Colm Feore.

The Stand. Although both this and SotC are technically mini-series'

It's difficult to pick from the rest cos there's been a lot that, for me, were equally good.

Christine
The Tommyknockers
IT
The Mist
Carrie
Pet Cemetery
Salem's Lot

And obviously outside of horror their was
Apt Pupil
The Green Mile
Shawshank Redemption.

Few other good ones to add..,

Dark Half
Sometimes they Come back
Children of the corn
Silver Bullet

I think the more interesting question is the top five WORST King movies lol, theres a lot of them. That new series, Under the Dome definitely needs to be on that one.

Oh it's not even close. Shining is definitely number one! When i said SOTC was one i didnt mean it like that, i meant i want to mention it first. And yea, Linoge was awesome! I wonder if he was Randal Flagg in the general Stephen King's universe.
