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.

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

It:
Based on Stephen King's 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear starring Harry Anderson, Annette O'Toole, John Rifter 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 wily kids fight back. The evil resurfaces 30 years later: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to battle It.

Diary of Ellen Rimbauer:
A prequel to the hit Stephen King's Rose Red, The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer unveils the twisted marriage of a matriarch to a promiscuous early 20th-Century industrialist and the haunter beginnings of an enormous Seattle mansion that has come to life.

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 Soul) 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" (Reddie Nalder).

Cheap for 10 dvds, but people should be aware they're the tv versions, so not Stanley Kubrick's great film version of "The Shining" with Jack Nicholson. And funny reviews on Amazon because you apparently have to turn "It" & "The Shining" discs over part-way through!!!? Good find for fans of Stephen King adaptations, though.

The Steven King version of the Shining is good as well -Salems Lot is still one of the best films ever!

sorry - got to comment! that's like saying "yah, it gets a wee bit warm in egypt in august" or "the beatles sold a few albums". the shining is an INCREDIBLE film. it might not be entirely faithful to the book, but it is still brilliant.

right - now i've got that off my chest, got to agree, salems lot is a blinder too - just watched it again recently.

anyway - hot

Either Im confused or you are, I though his comment was referring to the version of the shinning on this box set still being good, not the Kubrick one. So when he said the Steven King version he meant the TV version, i.e the one on this set and he never commented on the Kubrick version at all.
#6
Yeah - when I said bout the King version being good I wasn't meaning the Kubrick one but the remake King done which is in this box set.

He also done a remake of Salems Lot with Rob Lowe but its pretty disappointing!
#7
Yeah the TV version is pretty good of The Shining, albeit some wooden acting the storyline is closer to the original book than Kubricks vision of it
#8
my mistake guys - sorry - tired.................
#9
I suggest anyone who hasn't read the books does so!!!

The books are always so much better than the films.

I watched the first half of "It" and didn't realise there was another part until I looked again at the back of the DVD case and realised there were lots of pics on there which hadn't been in the film!

In my opinion the first half is fantastic but it loses it in the second half. Actually, anyone planning on watching it should just watch the first part and not bother with the rest

I second that opinion!...the kid actors were much better than their adult counterparts.
