    Default Facebook Poll: Rank you top 10 favourite King movie and TV adaptations

    I know there is currently a Best 80's Movie competition going on here, but I thought people may be interested in a poll I'm running in a Facebook Group.

    The poll is to rank your favourite Top 10 King movie/TV adaptations.

    It's in the Facebook group Stephen King: Constant Readers Fan Club
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/SKCRFC/?ref=share

    The poll is in the Announcements (the pinned posts at the top of the group). If you're not already a member, you'd have to join before being able to vote/see content in the group.

    Just thought I'd mention it here in case the film buffs are interested. Poll will be open until end of the weekend.

    Cheers.

    The Night Flier being dead last is sad too. I wonder if that's just because so few people have seen it.

    Just FYI on how this poll worked, people had to rank their top 10. So they specifically chose their 1st fav, 2nd, 3rd etc. Then when I extracted the data, I assigned 10 points for every adaptation that received a vote for being someone's 1st pick, 9 points for 2nd, 8 for 3rd etc. Then I totalled up what each adaptation received, and the list above is the rankings of those totals.

    So while the adaptations down the bottom were obviously not people's most favourite, I do acknowledge it doesn't necessarily mean they are the ones people dislike the most too. If I did a poll like this for people to vote on their 10 most disliked adaptations, I would expect the list to look very different.

    Not a perfect way to collate the rankings, but effective enough to give the FB group a list to represent our feelings.

    The Lawnmower Man at #60??? It should be waaaaay higher.

    a sense of infinite peace and protection in the glittering hosts of heaven."
