The number one best I'd have to say Carrie. One of the first Teen/Horror movies...One of the absolute best Horror films ever.
I like the Shining quite a bit but King himself of course hates it. His book ends in fire, the movie ends in ice...Still a great movie..
I grew up on Pet Semetary and Children of the Corn. I pretty much don't watch Pet Semetary anymore because the scenes the sister with scoliosis are too scary. I do own the book.
Salem's Lot I just saw recently and it is definitely in my top 5. Movies like Fright Night, and Lost Boys definitely were influenced by Salem's Lot.
Basically there aren't many adaptations of King's are are unwatchable... There are definitely a few like Maximum Overdrive, and Dreamcatcher, but it is unreal how many darn good movies have been made of King's stories.
Storm Of the Century, Langoliers, are two Mini Series I like...and of course "It" was awesome
I am not huge on Shawshank, The Green Mile, or Dolorous Claiborne...Good movies but I prefer King's Horror.
Carrie, The Shining, Salem's Lot, Pet Semetary, Creepshow.
