There are very few writers who deliver as many stories as Stephen King has. He is one of the most-read authors in the world, and while one of the reasons behind this achievement is his exceptional storytelling, it can also be credited to the sheer number of novels he has written over the course of his very long and successful career. King has dipped his toe in a number of genres, however, the one that his name has become synonymous with is horror. He has based the stories on already established supernatural creatures, and if he didn’t find any, he created scarier things out of thin air.
From sci-fi worlds to the coven of witches, with every new book, King has spun his web to create dangerous worlds. He has chosen interesting set-ups for his stories, often deriving inspiration from the common things around him. And in doing so, he had presented a possibility for paranoia, anytime you find yourself in a situation even remotely similar to one of his characters. If you are one of his fans, then following is the list of really good Stephen King movies and TV series on Netflix that are available to stream as of today.
7. Cell (2016)
The only reason that I have included this film on this list is that right now, the options are very limited on Netflix. This is not an ideal adaptation and unless you have a serious craving for a King story, I’d rather suggest you steer clear of it. On the other hand, you might not want to blindly agree with me and would rather watch and decide for yourself. In that case, let me give you a hint of what you’ll be getting yourself into.
By now, you might have seen a lot of movies and TV shows about zombies. Every film tries to come up with new theories about humans turning into mindless cannibals, and how a bunch of people survive this apocalypse. If there is one person you can trust with experimenting in the horror genre, it is Stephen King. In this story, he presents the world with a new possibility of how people will eventually turn into zombies. The answer is cell phones! (There’s a reason you parents ask you to spend less time on your phones. Now you know why!) The film follows the story of a man named Clay Riddell, who is on his way to meeting his family. Before boarding the plane, he decides to make a call, and this one phone call changes the whole world around him.
6. The Mist (2017)
