Stephen King’s Recommendations!  

The first movie on the list is an adaptation written by King himself. Doctor Sleep is sequel to The Shining and is directed by director Mike Flanagan. The movie adaptation of The Shining had many changes and left King upset. He trusted Flanagan with the sequel and was a big fan of how it turned out!  

The Flash movie wasn’t well received by critics or audiences and didn’t do well at the box office. King, however, was a fan of the movie. He called it “heartfelt, funny, and eye-popping” and enjoyed it a lot.  

King is no different than you and me. Even he gets caught up in some of the biggest shows of the year. He is a huge fan of Money Heist on Netflix, a Spanish crime series which was a global phenomenon. It is a great show and will have you on the edge of your couch!
