 I want to see this film again!
I want to see this film again!
Hi guys, I had seen this film many years and it is my seconde favourite film door Stephen King after Rose Red.

The Story

The film opens at a nursing home pagina where Paul Edgecomb is having a special power of immortality, this is actually a punishment for him because he executed a black who he was falsely accused of raping a young girl while working at a jail.
Out of his horror story, this is actually a very sad story and I literally cried throughout the entire movie! I also feel sorry for both Paul and John, especially the latter because he did not commit a crime and that he was an African American...

Hi guys, I had seen Rose Red and I am currently seeing it again as Halloween is around the corner. I am going to write a review about it and why I consider this as my only favourite Horror movie despite that I dislike Horror films.

The Story

While watching this movie, the film eerily reminds me of Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of heuvel House. On which the film took inspiration from, another story door Stephen King on which it took inspiration from is Carrie. Ironically, Annie Wheaton reminds me of Carrie and Eleanor 'Nell' Vance from the Haunting of heuvel House as they have telekinetic power.

'Rose Red,' Victims Blue In a Stephen King Thriller

By Ron Wertheimer

If you're one of those people who lapse into a condescending sneer at the mere mention of Stephen King, leave the room. Git. Now, for the rest of us who aren't above settling in for a well-wrought ghost story, who allow ourselves the guilty pleasure of a roiling melodrama, ''Stephen King's 'Rose Red' '' is inconsequential fun.
