The filmography of movies based on the many works from the author Stephen King. All features films, including mini TV series and TV series. No shorts.

It was inside the pages of "Black Mask" magazine (1920-51) that Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe were born, and this pulp fiction playground went on to greatly influence American cinema. In fact, Tarantino's film "Pulp Fiction" was originally titled "Black Mask".
While many writers flourished in this genre, the list below concentrates solely on the works of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and James Cain. I have endeavored to include all films based on their novels or stories, all screenplays, and anything derivative of their work. For instance, Hammett wrote only one "Thin Man" novel, but I have included all six films. While this list is heavy on noir and hard-boiled private eyes, it is not exclusively either. For example, "Black Bird" is here because it's a Sam Spade parody, not because of who wrote it, and 1982's "Hammett" is here because - honestly - what other list would it qualify for?

"However, it is now 2010. And a number of reviews have arrived which list their top ten films of the past decade. After much thought, what was horribly lacking in 2009 was very much alive and well throughout the previous nine years, and I’m talking about films that somehow stay with you as time goes on, films that show strength, integrity, complexity, perseverance, and a simple sense of morality, courtesy of three ingredients: excellent writing, phenomenal acting and superb direction. If you are interested in knowing what the Top Ten Films from 2000-2009 were, come and enjoy the cinematic ride. Your fellow travelers will include a martial arts master, a dark knight, a killer clown, a cute French girl, a cute Swedish vampire, a spunky American boxer, a spunky Italian photographer, people who are obsessed about a ring…and let us not forget the pagan god, Pan, as well as a certain Messiah who has generated the most controversy in cinematic history."
