Like it or not, you can't throw a rock in the cinematic universe without hitting a Stephen King book adaptation. Many of the best horror movies of all time originated in the brain of King, from Stanley Kubrick's mindf*ck, The Shining, to Misery, a horror movie so exceptional that it earned Kathy Bates an Oscar. But we can't just stop there. Did you know King has also written quite a few books outside the horror realm, and some have been adapted into wildly and critically acclaimed films? We're leaving the scary movies behind to give you a different kind of surprise twist.
