Simply Great
11 October 2003 | by (Istanbul,Turkey) – See all my reviews

As a fan of Stephen King I always thought that all the movies or series except "IT" weren't really good although the books were great. As I started watching "Storm of The Century" I didn't have any expectations and thought I would give up in 30 mins or so because it lasts 4 hours + but I was wrong. Although I saw many of the cast first time act, I think most of them did a great job. The story is incredible and the surroundings fit in great. I didn't realize how the time pass and at the end of it I wished it would go on. The story itself has many things in it. Horror, drama, tragedy, crime and even romance. Definitely worth to watch and worth the time spend watching it. 9 out of 10.
