What is the Best Stephen King Adaptation?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

We recently counted down the top 50 Stephen King adaptations with 1980’s The Shining taking the top spot. But did we make the right choice? For today’s question, I want to know: what is the best Stephen King adaptation?

Personally, nothing tops the 1990 film Misery. I’ve always preferred King’s works that are more psychological and suspenseful than just straightforward horror or sci-fi (like It). Kathy Bates and James Caan also give some absolutely stellar performances.

So what about you, screenagers? What Stephen King adaptation do you think is simply the best?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
