Not that great
20 January 1999 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Some good facts you don't know are on this video, but if you are a horror freak, nothing's new here. Also this has got nothing to do with Stephen King. In this entire movie of 270 min. you may see him for about 15 min. Buy this only if you are a real horror fan and if you want to have anything that has got to do with any horror style.
