Top Stephen King Book Adaptations!

Hi everyone!

So if you’ve been on my blog for longer than 10 minutes you’ll know that I absolutely ADORE Stephen King and everything he does, and although I’ve not seen a lot of the adaptations he’s created, I have seen some brilliant ones so I thought I’d share some of my favourites!divider-2461548_1280

I saw this movie (the original!) quite a while back, and for someone who is absolutely terrified of clowns, I’m impressed I managed to get through it! I did however absolutely love it, and it’s terrifying Pennywise – Tim Curry is so brilliant! I loved the book, and could watch this film so much, it’s brilliant!

I watched this film at my partners house, and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen it yet because it was amazing. Yes, it’s quite a long film and seems very daunting but there’s a reason it’s the highest rated film on IMDB! Beautiful and memorable and also I adore Morgan Freeman ok?

THE TEARS. OH THE TEARS ARE REAL. This is 100% my favourite Stephen King adaptation that I’ve seen so far. It actually still makes me cry because I just loved this so much, I was NOT OKAY. I’m still yet to read the book, but am I ready to put myself through that again? NOPE.divider-2461548_1280

There we go! I forgot to mention the TV series for 11/22/63 which I also LOVED! What are your favourite adaptations of King’s? Leave me some recommendations!

Until next time,

Keep Reading!

  1. I love The Shawshank Redemption, it’s one of my favorite films! I’ve not seen either of the others, I must get around to it. I did love the original Carrie film though, it was really well done and there was just something about that made me want to watch it again.
    I wasn’t as fussed on the 2013 re-make, but I think that’s because it contained more modern-day horror tropes that aren’t really my thing.

      1. It is, the first time I watched I thought, why haven’t I watched this before!! I will remember that, The Green Mile has been on my to watch and to be read lists for a long time I just haven’t got to them, and It looks terrifying so I might have to watch it in the middle of summer.
        You should! The final scene is stunning, it’s interesting watching the two versions side by side to compare the two as well. It really shows how films nowadays have changed since the original was made.
