Stephen King Adaptation Quiz

Most of us have seen at least one film based on a Stephen King novel or short story, so this week let’s see if you can place these faces with the Stephen King movie. You only need to tell me the movie (not the actor’s name or character).  They are all direct adaptations and the images may or may not be from the King movie – I can’t make it that easy! 

Each question is worth 6.5 points with a bonus question worth 2.5 points.  You have until Thursday at midnight to submit your answers as a comment.  I hide your answers until then.

Here are the rules… 1. Open to everyone.  Play once or every week, that’s okay.  I’m happy to have you here today.

2. No cheating.  No googling, other internet searches or looking at other commenter answers.  Yes, we’re going by the honor system

3. Your first answers will be the only ones accepted.
