That didn’t happen with these 7 classic Stephen King movies. Although some of them may stray a bit from the original story, they are all phenomenal movies worth watching.
1. The Shining

The Shining is one of my favorite classic Stephen King movies of all time. Jack Nicholson’s performance as the possessed caretaker of the remote Overlook Hotel is absolutely bone-chilling. Don’t even get me started on those creepy little twins! This 1980 movie is based on the Stephen King novel, although there are significant differences between the book and the movie. There was actually a mini-series remake in 1997, but it was nowhere near as scary as the original movie.
