The best horror movies based on works penned by master of the macabre, Stephen King. Includes Stanley Kubrick classic 'The Shining', psychological thriller 'Misery', and relatively recent haunted-house horror '1408', starring none other than John Cusack.
Movies in the vein of 'Stitches': featuring bloodthirsty clowns as their villains, out to make up for all the years they endured being kicked in the shins by rambunctious kids, sneered at for their balloon art, and laughed at not with. Don't watch before dropping your child off at a birthday party!
Whilst Stephen King's no stranger to low-budget made-for-TV movies, he's also responsible for some all-time classics; 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Stand by Me' 'Misery' and 'Carrie'. Just don't get him started on 'The Shining'...
A list crowned by recent Australian masterpiece, 'The Babadook' - which, for our money, is the best film of its ilk released in recent years. For those not in the know, psychological horror relies less on blood and guts and more on brains: playing on the audience's unconscious fears, toying with the uncanny, and making strategic use of silence.
After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
