Emery says the line "Did I stutter?" This is a probable homage to Bill Denborough in Stephen King's novel "IT", who had a terrible stuttering problem. See more »
Though the house is protected by a gate that only seems to be operable using a remote control (as in a later scene there is no signs of an intercom), a pizza delivery man seems to have no problem getting to the front door of the house. See more »
Reading through, a l0ot of the hate is for Stephen King and not so much for the series itself. Mind, they are hati8ng on him for being a popular writer in the literary version of the hipster nothing mainstream ethos.
And while they are doing it, they are forgetting the same hatred for the same reasons were targeted at Poe, Lovecraft, Dumas, and Sabatini...so King is in pretty good company for the haters.
His problem is...he doesn't know how to end things. At least most of the time with King the pay off is the build up and that build up is really fun to read...or in this case watch.
But it ends like The Stand, with a solid "meh." And the plot is very Drive-in B-Horror movie, which is fun, because, you know, they aren't trying to do Shakespeare who was also a--gasp--pop writer in his day.
It's King, he does horror and some of it is EPIC, like The Shinning, The Stand, you know the names...
...but most of it is B-Movie fun and enjoyable on a whole different level.
Rose Red is a B-Movie from the haunted house vein and it works, it makes for an enjoyable show with an enjoyable cast.
The is until it tapers out in the last act, but it's long enough where that doesn't matter, we had the build-up and it was worth it.
