Don't believe us? See for yourself: the BFI Southbank is putting on a season of Stephen King films, featuring talks and discussions as well as screenings of the movies in question. As should be clear from the selection available, most of them are absolute gems.
But not all of King's novels are about creeping you out. Stand By Me, based on his short story 'The Body', is the quintessential coming of age film, and if you've never seen epic prison drama The Shawshank Redemption... Well, now's your chance.
