Since the 1970s, it has almost been a yearly event of seeing another Stephen King adaptation hit either the big screens, streaming, or even a limited television series. King is no doubt one of the most prolific authors of all time. The world he creates on the pages of his stories is so cinematic. They're horror stories about the common person dealing with extraordinarily terrifying circumstances. Filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick, Rob Reiner, Frank Darabont, Mike Flanagan, and even John Carpenter have directed memorable adaptations of King's work.
