Graveyard Shift [VHS]
4.  Graveyard Shift [VHS] VHS David Andrews
The list author says:
  "A truly terrible film from start to finish. I often wonder why they make a film of a story that's so short."
19.99   Used & New from: 1.78
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Sleepwalkers [VHS] [1992]
5.  Sleepwalkers [VHS] [1992] VHS Brian Krause

4.99   Used & New from: 0.10
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)

The Langoliers [VHS] [1995]
6.  The Langoliers [VHS] [1995] VHS Patricia Wettig
The list author says:
  "Great film marred only by the appearence of the monsters at the end. CGI in its beginning stages makes for a very dissatisfying climax."
3.98   Used & New from: 1.99
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (74 customer reviews)

Stephen King's Sometimes They Come Back [VHS]
7.  Stephen King's Sometimes They Come Back [VHS] VHS Tom McLoughlin|Tim Matheson|Brooke Adams|Robert Rusler

Children Of The Corn 3 - Urban Harvest [VHS]
8.  Children Of The Corn 3 - Urban Harvest [VHS] VHS Daniel Cerny
The list author says:
  "While not strictly a King adaptation, it is based on his characters, and I somehow find mysef wishing he hadn't put pen to paper. Then we would have been spared one of the worst films of all time."
3.11   Used & New from: 0.73
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Pet Sematary [VHS] [1989]
9.  Pet Sematary [VHS] [1989] VHS Dale Midkiff
The list author says:
  "This film is brilliant from start to finish, one of the few adaptations better than the book. Chilling also in the moral questions it raises."
4.74   Used & New from: 1.00
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (47 customer reviews)

Pet Sematary 2 [VHS]
10.  Pet Sematary 2 [VHS] VHS Edward Furlong
The list author says:
  "Reasonably entertaining film, but with a rather pathetic beginning. Nowhere near as intelligent as the first film, but it can be forgiven in this instance."
9.98   Used & New from: 1.25
3.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Cujo [VHS] [1983]
11.  Cujo [VHS] [1983] VHS Dee Wallace
The list author says:
  "Wasn't too keen on it on first viewing, but it grows on you. Actually rather an accomplished piece of direction, and quite disturbing. Still, should have left the ending of the book untouched."
4.79   Used & New from: 1.80
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Salem's Lot [VHS] [1981]
12.  Salem's Lot [VHS] [1981] VHS David Soul
The list author says:

Used & New from: 3.45
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Return to Salem's Lot [VHS]
13.  Return to Salem's Lot [VHS] VHS Michael Moriarty

Needful Things [VHS]
14.  Needful Things [VHS] VHS Ed Harris
The list author says:
  "Not a good adaptation at all. Ed Harris looks increasingly bored in his role as the film progresses, and rightly so."

3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews)

The Rage - Carrie 2 [DVD] [1999]
16.  The Rage - Carrie 2 [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Emily Bergl
The list author says:
  "However, the sequal is the exact opposite. Practically exactly the same plot, but created with no artistic sense or style, this is pure rubbish."

Stephen King's Silver Bullet [1985] [DVD]
17.  Stephen King's Silver Bullet [1985] [DVD] DVD ~ Gary Busey

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Christine [DVD] [1984]
18.  Christine [DVD] [1984] DVD ~ Keith Gordon

The Dead Zone [DVD]
19.  The Dead Zone [DVD] DVD ~ Christopher Walken
The list author says:

Stand By Me [DVD] [2000]

The Green Mile [DVD] [1999]
22.  The Green Mile [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Tom Hanks

The Running Man [1987] [DVD] [1988]
23.  The Running Man [1987] [DVD] [1988] DVD ~ Maria Conchita Alonso

3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (90 customer reviews)

Firestarter [DVD]

The Dark Half [DVD] [1994]
25.  The Dark Half [DVD] [1994] DVD ~ Timothy Hutton
