Arguably, none of the three best Stephen King movie adaptations are horror. (And I mean they're arguably the best, not that they're arguably not horror.) He says, in the afterword to Different Seasons, that it was explained to him on his second, maybe third, novel that he needed to stop publishing horror books right then and there unless he wanted to be pegged for the rest of his career. Needless to say, he didn't heed the advice, though even if you're going to cite Misery over Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, or Stand by Me, I'd argue that it's more of a psychological thriller than true horror.
