    Even though there won't be another poll 'til Monday, let's start the Stephen King challenge now.

    Note: There are so many adaptations of King novels/stories, and the site only allows ten options a poll, so I'm just picking as many as I can, and then the next poll will have the next ten, and so on, until we get through all of them, then a final poll with the winners of each poll.

    I was about to complain about the lack of The Green Mile, but then I read your post

    I'm going to need to think about this for a bit. Carrie, Creepshow, Cujo and The Shining are all up there, with Carrie and The Shining probably meaning the most to me. There's one adaptation I would choose over all of them, but it's not on this poll

    The Shining for me, from this group (and probably for the entire thing, to be honest). I still haven't seen 11/22/63 (waiting to read the book first) but I heard it's very good.

    Ended up voting for Carrie, but I have no problem with The Shining taking it

    'Salem's Lot for me.

    Almost went with The Shining.
     
  8. The Shining, no contest.

    Looking at this (albeit incomplete for this first poll round) list, makes me realize that I really haven't seen that many King adaptions. I went with Carrie which I did like, but mainly because the only other one I've seen and actually remember is The Shining, and I completely understand how in the minority I am for this opinion, but I just could not get into it. I've rewatched it quite a few times but still falls flat.

    I was almost certain The Shining would take it, but I'm surprised the votes aren't a little more scattered. Some of these movies are a lot of fun and are the type that I could easily understand to be personal favourites

    The only ones I've seen out of these are Cujo, Carrie, Children of the Corn, and The Shining
