When Stephen King was still considering making Rose Red (2002) as a feature film with Steven Spielberg, the two had many creative disagreements over the tone of the film. Spielberg demanded more in the way of thrills and action sequences, while King was dead set on cerebral horrors. Eventually they couldn't come to an understanding and the project was shelved with King buying back the rights to the script. You get an idea of the kind of horror film Spielberg wanted to make with the subsequent Monster House (2006). See more »

There are so many of King's books that didn't go over well as movies. And this one, which was never even a book, did really well. If you have a Friday night and a lot of popcorn to kill, this is a decent one to settle down with. A lot of the actors are unknown, but pull this off well. I like how it's not just a group of people going to spend the night in a haunted house and win money and fame shtick. (i.e. the new House on Haunted Hill) I also liked how all the people who went had a unique specialty in the paranormal/supernatural. Also, it has the regular blend of characters you love to hate, ones who are suspicious, and the adorable ones that you hope don't make the mistake of investigating unknown noises in the middle of the night alone.
