With the release of ‘The Dark Tower’ and ‘It’ we thought it time to look back at some of the most acclaimed and some of the most rarely screened classics based on the works of the master of horror, Stephen King. Included here are favourites like ‘Carrie’ and ‘The Shawshank Redemption’ alongside rarities like the black & white version of ‘The Mist’ and anthology gem ‘Creepshow’. Join us this summer as we celebrate the man that terrified millions…
A compendium of five short but terrifying tales contained within a single full-length feature, this film conjures scares from traditional bogeymen and portents of doom. In one story, a monster escapes from its holding cell. Another focuses on a husband with a creative way of getting back at his cheating wife. Other stories concern a rural man and a visitor from outer space, and a homeowner with huge bug problems and a boozing corpse.
