Product Description

The Stephen King Collection contains six of King's most iconic works in one box set.

IT
Based on Stephen King’s 1986 bestseller, this is a jittery jolting excursion into personal fear starring Harry Anderson, Annette O’Toole, John Ritter and Richard Thomas. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown (Tim Curry), but he’s not clowning around. Instead he terrifies youngsters and brings some to their untimely doom - until some wiley kids fight back. The evil resurfaces 30 years late: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to battle IT.

Diary of Ellen Rimbauer
A prequel to the hit Stephen Kings Rose Red, Diary of Ellen Rimbauer unveils the twisted marriage of a matriarch to a promiscuous early 20th-century industrialist and the haunted beginnings of an enormous Seattle Mansion that has come to life.

Rose Red
Is Rose Red Mansion Truly haunted? To find out, professor Joyce Reardon (Nancy Travis) invites 6 people - each with a distinct paranormal skill- to join her on a phsycic field trip to reawaken the estate’s supposedly dormant supernatural powers. So mark your calendar and maybe buy some life insurance.

The Shining
Jack Torrance (Steven Weber) and his family (Rebecca de Mornay and courtland Mead) move into the sprawling, vacant Overlook hotel to get away from it all. Away from the alcoholism that derails Jack’s writing career. Away from the violent outbursts that mar Jack’s past. But Jack’s young son Danny knows better. He possesses a psychic gift called "the Shining" - a gift the hotel’s vile spirits desperately want.

Storm of the Century
Secure the doors, check the lights and gather plenty of provisions, The Storm of the Century is coming. And the forecast is horror. Stephen King again takes fans to the brink and beyond with this iceswept, macabre tale about a tiny Maine Island community besieged by a fierce weather supersystem and by an accompanying, all-knowing being even fiercer

Salem’s Lot
A blood-curdling shocker based on the novel by Stephen King, director Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist) sends the time honoured vampire legend soaring on bat wings into the modern era. Sinister events bring together a writer (David Sole) fascinated with an old hilltop house, a suave antiques dealer (James Mason) whose expertise goes beyond bric-a-brac and the dealer’s mysterious, pale skinned "partner" (Reggie Nalder).

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the reviewers below... 10 Nov 2007
By Jon
These ARE of course the full TV films, the reviewers below obviously haven't grasped the concept of double-sided disks!

Both "It" and "The Shining" contain disks that must be flipped after around 90 minutes so that the film may continue. I can understand how this has caused some confusion however, the manufacturers presumed people would realise and therefore put nothing on the boxes to outline that this was the case.

The films themselves aren't bad at all by the way!

Verified Purchase
Yes have to agree guys, the dvd's ARE double sided, and yes they're a good Sunday afternoon viewing. Bought the set at under 20.00 off Amazon & good value. If you like Stephen King you'll enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a great collection 28 Oct 2011
I f your a Stephen King fan then you'll love this collection. I hadn't heard of Rose Red before as it was written by king for television but it turned out to be a hidden gem, a typical haunted house story but really well done. It had been a while since I had seen IT and it didn't disappoint - look out for a young Seth Green. The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer was the only let down, a prequal to Rose Red it was poor and at times contradicted parts of the houses history laid out in Rose Red. The main reason I had brought the box set was for Storm of the Centary and this tale sums up what king does best a small community, isolated, facing up to some horror implodes and often it's the people who turn out to be the bad guys. Salems Lot is a classic directed by a Tobe Hooper and is one of the adaptations of Kings work. The Shinning is always going to be compared to Kubricks version and while it doesn't have the style and visual flare of the film it follows the book more closely and the performance of the child made a good watch. Overall a top collection, while they are tv miniseries and don't have the budget of feature films they make up for it by having more run time to tell their story and set up the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Considering its new... 1 Aug 2011
The films are great! I can sort of see where the confusion came along with the double sided DVD issue but when you actually look at the DVD you can see its a Double sided DVD... Shiny sides and all that. However, my only issue; a big issue (Haha), Is that whereas the DVDS in the box set where individually wrapped, the actual box set box was completely knackered! It was completely bust around the edges and was falling a part to be honest. Now it only bugged me because its quite an expensive box set and it would have been nice for me to keep the DVDS in the box rather than have them out individually.
