NC: Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to. Well, I guess it's Stephen King time again.

(The title "Stephen King Time!" from the previous episode appears)

NC: Yeah, yeah, yeah. This is the first time I've ever done (holds up two fingers) two Stephen King videos in the same month. So, it probably goes without saying, I need alcohol. Luckily, I have the Stephen King Drinking Game shot glasses!

(He displays on his table a set of eight shot glasses, all themed to Stephen King movies he had reviewed in the past. He turns the shot glasses around to display various messages on the backs)

NC: Yeah, no joke, a fan made these for me, and I can't think of a better time to use them. (picks up one glass and fills it up with Smirnoff) So, let's get ready to talk about yet another Stephen King adaptation. This is... (squints as if trying to read something) the Top 11 Stephen King Good Movies. (eyes widen) Good movies? You mean, I finally get to talk about good Stephen King movies? Good Stephen King movies?! (suddenly elated) Oh, thank the Lord and the giver of His love! I AM FINALLY SAVED! (beat) I'm still gonna drink this. (takes a swig of the Smirnoff in the shot glass, then makes a sour expression as he gags on it)

(Clips of Stephen King movies that NC reviewed in the past are shown)

NC (vo): For years, I've made fun of Stephen King's worst adaptations, running cliches, and, yeah, maybe passed over the good stuff that made him popular to begin with. Truth be told, this guy has written not only some amazing stories, but amazing stories that turn into amazing films. On top of that, they're different types of films: some big and over the top, some subtle and perplexing, some scary, some funny, some standard, and some groundbreakers that inspire filmmakers to change the field they're in. As much as I mock his funnier stuff, King has turned in some game-changers that force us to think deeper about what scares us, what moves us, what pushes us apart, and what pulls us closer together. It's been a long time coming, but I finally get to discuss some of the greatest works of one of our most famous writers!

NC: And we're gonna talk about the top 11 of them here today! Why top 11? (holds up index finger) Because I like to go one step beyond. So, sit back and enjoy the Top 11 Good... God, this feels so weird to say... Stephen King Movies!

(Cut to a shot of a heavenly choir of angels tooting horns as Stephen King, also an angel, appears, while "Hallelujah" is heard in the background, and the title for this video appears. This will be the interlude footage throughout the video)
