Set at the turn of the century, this is the tale of Ellen Rimbauer who just received this mysterious mansion as a wedding gift from her new husband. Her husband is a Seattle oil tycoon who has a dark past which Ellen eventually finds out about. She becomes fearful of her husband when she learns of some disappearances of people that were close to him. Also there are some unexplained happenings at the Rose Red Mansion that might have a connection to these people who have disappeared. Now Ellen is worried she might be next. Written by
So the Diary of Ellen Rimbauer was a supplemental book done after Stephen King's Rose Red aired.
Now, I never read the Diary of Ellen Rimbauer, but I did watch the TV movie they produced, which was based on that book. And frankly, I can't see how they could ever justify the book or the movie existing.
The movie is just basically a re-hashed story of Ellen Rimbauer's history with the house and her lousy husband. At no point during the movie do they actually ever explain more than what Rose Red already established.
It doesn't explain the hauntings, or the disappearances or anything like that. To add further insult to injury, they couldn't even get the original cast member from Rose Red to play Ellen in the Diary of Ellen Rimbauer.
The movie also contradicts Rose Red in a few instances, which is honestly insane. When you are basing creative writing off of an already established world, how hard is it to keep facts straight? No wonder I haven't heard of this film until just recently, it's poo.
