Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Stephen King Movies

See what movie managed to beat 'Misery,' 'Carrie' and 'Stand by Me'

10. 'Dolores Claiborne'

Just two years after winning a Best Actress Academy Award for her chilling portrayal of obsessed fan Annie Wilkes in Misery, Kathy Bates returned to the land of Stephen King by starring in Dolores Claiborne. This time around, she played a maid that police believe killed her wealthy boss. She denies committing the crime, but does tell police her twisted life story that includes offing her husband after he molested their daughter. While it didn't quite rack up the same box office and acclaim as Misery, it was more than a worthy follow-up.
