Liked Stephen Kings Story
1 July 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Always liked Stephen Kings books and some of his films were great and others not as interesting, with horrible endings which made very little sense. This film in my opinion was fantastic and held my interest right to the very end and his conclusion to the film was even better than I expected. Storm of the Century was very creepy with all the snow covering this small lobster town and then a man with an ugly cane coming to the door of a very old home; and an old lady drinking tea inside hears the door bell and struggles to use a walker to see who is at her door. It is from this point on that the film never stops giving you the creeps and chills up and down your spine. This strange man keeps saying: "Give Me What I Want and I will Go Away" and the guy really means it. Stephen King even makes an appearance on a broken TV Screen, so watch out for his brief showing. Enjoy
