Being a professional truck driver can, at times, be pretty scary, especially when you witness some of the behavior of others on the road.
But, sometimes a good fright – the safe kind – can be enjoyable after another white-knuckle day on this nation’s highways.
What better way to get a controlled dose of fear than with a spooky movie? And, not just any old screamer, but one by the modern master of all things creepy, Stephen King.
King has written 54 novels and some 200 short stories, many of which have been made into or inspired movies.
Here’s a baker’s dozen of great Stephen King movies from over almost the last 40 years that’ll make you double-check the locks on your truck doors before you sack out for the night.
They can be found on Amazon Instant Video.
