    I've gotta go with Shawshank on this one. Misery, The Green Mile, and Stand By Me would be right behind it. Several others would be on the "VERY honorable mention" list. I'd say The Shining, but it's more like a Kubrick film, based (loosely in many parts) on an SK story.

    I just finished a re-read of Misery (audiobook) and I watched the movie right after I finished. The movie is excellent and is a good adaptation. It is not as dark as the book but that's ok. Of course Kathy Bates was awesome in this role and her performance is what everyone instantly thinks of but James Cann was really good in this too. I can never read this book or hear the name Annie Wilkes without picturing Kathy Bates.

    My favorite SK movies are:

    The Shining
    Stand By Me
    Misery

    Misery is the best in my opinion.
    Stand By Me is a close second.
    Shawshank and Dead Zone third.

    Ask me again next month and I'll probably have them all in a different order!

    I also have lots of favorites that see regular rotation: Cujo, Christine, Pet Sematary, The Shining, The Mist, Secret Window. It and The Stand are my favorite TV adaptations, although the first Salem's Lot is pretty darn good too.
