And on the subject of Steven King:

The Shining - I thought was done well, though the book scared me more.

Firestarter - again, good adaptation

Carrie - good one for Brian dePalma

And while I think of it:

Jaws - Peter Benchley. Good book, good film.

Tarzan - Edgar Rice Burroughs. Mostly terrible adaptations, but I think Greystoke got it about right
