Horror writer Stephen King ranks among the most prolific of contemporary American authors. This is a complete list of feature films and miniseries based on his writings, including work written under the pseudonym Richard Bachman, and the sequels to films based on Stephen King books. The rankings are determined by the votes of Ranker users.

With the second installment of King's classic It hitting screens soon, what better time to look back on the man's long and storied list of adaptations? (NOTE: King's short stories, novellas, and other work have also inspired numerous TV shows, and you can check out the full ranking of all Stephen King adaptations to see where those fall.)
