My Top 4 Stephen King Adaptions of 2017

By E. Reyes

If I had to choose who's having the best year ever, I'd definitely choose the master of horror, Stephen King.

Stephen King's stories dominated in 2017; books and movie adaptions respectively.

I enjoyed every movie adaption (Yes, even The Dark Tower) so let's cut to the chase, shall we?

My Top 4 Stephen King Adaptions

4. The Dark Tower

Although it definitely wasn't as epic or as grande as the wait was (or the book), The Dark Tower is still an enjoyable film to watch. If you have the attitude of "Oh, this isn't nothing like the book. Kill it!" then you will be dissatisfied. It did differ, but it also had a lot of key ingredients and subtle hints to the book series. I also enjoyed the cameos of The Shining, Christine, Pennywise (amusement park ride), and Rita Hayworth. My favorite character? Matthew McConaughey as The Man in Black.

3. 1922

When I first read this story I remember thinking how disturbing and creepy this was...and gory. The Netflix movie is exactly the same! This is definitely a book adaption done damn right. I truly enjoyed 1922. It is very creepy.

2. Gerald's Game

The book is nerve wracking and makes you squeamish. The movie captures that same feeling. Another great adaption of King's work (we deserve this). By the way, there's a particular scene in this one that is f****** gruesome.

1. It

Not only is It my favorite Stephen King adaption, but it is my favorite movie, period. Andy Muchietti captured one of the best horror movies to date, along with the best movie monster to date. Everything about this movie is amazing from the cinematography, the soundtrack, story, the Losers Club, the scares, and of course, Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

I'm totally looking forward to more Stephen King adaptions, especially of Pet Sematary.
