Stephen King would be the first person to say that Hollywood hasn't always done a great job with his books. For every brilliant film like Misery and The Shining, there's a dog like Dreamcatcher or Children of the Corn and its many, many sequels. There's also Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, two irrefutable classics that many don't even realize are based on Stephen King novellas.
