DARK PLACE




This is a list of film and television work associated with the writer Stephen King. We have included some sequels to his work, where the only connection might be that it is a sequel, but our thinking is that if not for King, there would be nothing to base the sequel on. We have also included shorts where we could find images, as we do on all our 'Footsteps' lists. In most cases, shorts on this list come under the heading of 'Dollar Baby' films, a longer (if incomplete) list of these films can be found here. Some short films are not even listed on imdb, perhaps because they are either fan films or unsanctioned adaptations. Anyway, this is our attempt to do justice to the work of Stephen King on both big and small screen.
