Appears to be Stephen King stories that were adapted for TV hence lack of those films (which are indeed great) you listed. Its a good deal as there is a lot of entertainment time in this box set.

Hot
It & The Shining worth the money alone

Thinner should have been in there

would have preferred Pet Sematary on this rather than The Shining

Shawshank is indeed the best film ever made but it's very little to do with Stephen King as King's Shawshank was a mediocre short story with little resemblance to the great movie.

Can see much value in this set as you can pick up It, Salems and Shining for about a fiver each and the rest is padding.

Just in case you didn't know, it's not the 'good' Shining with Jack Nicholson. It's the TV one.

Though you're right, IT is amazing. Wish I hadn't watched that as a kid.:oops:

:? Have you actually read the short story?? The film follows its story pretty much to the letter, no idea how it would have "no resemblance".

Superb deal... fantastic for Father's Day!!!

The Shawshank Redemption is a short story by Stephen King that is featured in Different Seasons. I advise anyone to buy the book as all of the stories are great.

As this deal is a DVD I would have expected so have seen the Green Mile and Shawshank as they are by far the best films I have seen.

BEEP BEEP Richie! They ALL float down here. When you're down here with us, you'll float too!

Your right I didn't check :oops:

This review on Amazon doesn't bode too well either

I bought the box set and I was disappointed when I noticed that the movie … I bought the box set and I was disappointed when I noticed that the movie IT has only 90 minutes instead of original 180. In addition, the movie The Shinning is missing a big part. It simply jumps from the moment the main character starts talking to the ghosts to the moment in which he tries to kill his wife. I thought it was a defect of one isolated box set, but after I got the second box set, it seems to me that all box sets are faulty with missing parts.

shame you didnt read the follow-up reviews - this person didn't realise they were double-sided discs!

"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!"

Storm of the century is genious, I would advice all to see it

still think "the stand" is his best work, although quite long have an old region 1 copy all scratched,still looking for a cheap region 2 copy although £5 at play (2 for £10) aint a bad price

Nope haven't read it, just like to make random comments to annoy you:?

Anybody else read the short story and think it very similar to the movie?

A great deal. I think the films, as the books, do tend to spin things out a bit - Storm of the Century could have been a lot shorter and just as effective - but this is a great value set. I didn't think much to Rose Red as it seemed so derivative of earlier films. There's enough here to keep you going for months though, and it would be a great father's day or birthday present.

What bits do you think are different?
