Did You Know?

Before being directed by Craig R. Baxley, Stephen King first offered the script to Mick Garris, who had directed King screenplays like Sleepwalkers (1992), "The Stand" (1994) and "The Shining" (1997). Garris turned it down, so King presented it to Mark Carliner, King's producer on "The Shining" (1997) and "Storm of the Century" (1999). Carliner agreed to produce it as a feature film, and just as King was about to begin script revisions, he was hit by a car while on a walk near his home on June 19, 1999.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When they're in the hallway Sukeena designed, Prof. Reardon says that Ellen Rimbauer disappeared on Jan. 15th, 1950 when she was 70. She couldn't have possibly been 70, because earlier in the series, Prof. Reardon stated that Ellen was 20 in 1906 when she got married.See more »

High quality horror from the master of creepy tales..., 10 October 2008
Author: Neil Doyle from U.S.A.

If you like haunted house stories, this Stephen King tale is for you.

ROSE RED is a high quality horror tale from the master of the genre, his ability to spin a creepy tale never seeming to diminish.

The real star of the film is the mansion itself, as terrifyingly real as possible despite the use of miniatures for many of the shots, all of its corridors and rooms magnificently photographed and obviously sparing no expense for a TV film that was part of a mini-series.

The story tends to drag once in awhile but the horror is gripping enough to sustain interest throughout the lengthy tale. NANCY TRAVIS is excellent as the off-kilter psychology professor willing to undertake an experiment with other psychics at Rose Red, a haunted mansion known for devouring its occupants. MATT ROSS, as Emery, a spineless mama's boy who pays dearly for entering the premises, is another who stands out among the largely unfamiliar names in the cast.

Especially good are David DUKES as Professor Miller, MATT KEESLAR as Steve, JULIAN SANDS as Nick and LAURA KENNY, a screaming delight as the possessive Mrs. Waterman.

But again, it's the atmospheric house itself and the many special effects that have it reaching out to get its hooks on unlucky victims, both in and outside the mansion, that keeps the story spinning in a very compelling sort of way. The photography captures every menacing moment in the sometimes opulent interiors, as well as the rotting decay when the spirits of the undead make their presence known.

Very intense at certain moments, it may well have been even more effective if the opening scenes did not seem so padded before the events switch to the house itself. Once Rose Red is entered, the fun begins.
