If you're a fan of Maine native Stephen King's works, there's a lot of material out there to consume.

You've got novels, short stories, television series, and the occasional poem in a Playboy magazine. Plus, there's always new stuff on the horizon for you to get excited about.

Then there are the movie adaptations, which even the biggest fans of King would argue have been hit or miss. Even King dislikes one of the most famous movie versions of his books, "The Shining," so you just can't win 'em all.

But thanks to the popular Rotten Tomatoes website, we can take a look at how the films based on his works are rated per the critics. In fact, there are 50+ Stephen King movies out there, according to the author's own website, but, based on Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer scoring system, about 20 of them have the "Fresh" rating.

That means anything 60 percent and above. Anything below that number is considered "Rotten."

Let's look at the top 13 Stephen King movies based on the Rotten Tomatoes scores.

A few other interesting things to note about Stephen King movies:

The No. 1-rated Rotten Tomatoes Stephen King movie, "Carrie," is also the first Stephen King movie that came out. That would be November 3, 1976, according to stephenking.com.

Not all of Stephen King's best-reviewed movies are horror. "Stand by Me," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile" make the top 13 list, and you might not have even known those were King works.

There are many instances of Stephen King's works being adapted multiple times like "The Shining," "It," "Firestarter," and "Pet Semetary" to name a few. That's not likely to stop anytime soon either.

How long before another iteration of "Carrie" comes out?

And how soon before there is a new No. 1 rated Stephen King movie according to Rotten Tomatoes? Guess we'll have to keep watching to find out.
