Based on the 1979 bestseller written by Peter Straub and considered one of the finest horror novels of the late 20th century by Stephen King. The movie did well at the box-office making over $23 million in the USA but opened to mixed reviews. A must-watch for the Halloween season.
The movie is a slimmed down version of the book and of course some people were not happy with that. However I feel it makes up for any story shortcomings with a great veteran cast including Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, Douglas Fairbanks Jr, and John Houseman. Also starring Craig Wasson, Patricia Neal and Alice Krige.
It was first released on DVD in 1998 with an anamorphic DVD following in 2004. As far as I know there has not been a Blu-ray release, a shame. 8/10.
