      High Quality Transfers of Classic Stephen King

      I grabbed this combo deal because I've tried to find Stephen King's Salem's Lot (directed by the late Tobe Hooper of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' and 'Poltergeist' fame) for ages but have only ever found it in low-quality streaming. This pack had that AND some King's other adaptions. I saw Cat's Eye in a theater back in my early teens so revisiting that bit of nostalgia also made this worth it. The vignettes in Cat's Eye came from Stephen King's 'Night Shift'. Namely 'The Ledge' and 'Smokers Incorporated'. Cat's Eye cheesed out a little by incorporating a traveling stray cat as the link between each vignette. I think the main characters of the story were someone's family-friendly bastardization of Stephen King's 'The Boogeyman (also from Night Shift). Probably for the best. The original subject matter dealt with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) which was very dark even for a Stephen King novel. I think he wrote it around the time his wife was pregnant with their son as a means of tackling that fear. Anyone that saw the original adaption of 'It' with Tim Curry as Pennywise will remember just how creepy he was and why it's worth it to pick up a copy on Blu-ray. Salem's Lot (both the book and the mini-series) gave me nightmares as a kid and I just had to revisit the made-for-TV adaption. This Blu-ray is a treasure for those that appreciate older adaptations of Stephen King's work for film and television. My only "Con" would be that it didn't include The Stand but I'm still very happy with what it came with.

      Trying to find a high quality version of Cat's Eye, and the made-for-TV mini series versions of 'It' and 'Salem's Lot' are near impossible but here they are, along with Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' all on separate Blu-ray discs. Excellent find! King fans

      You get 4 movies for the price of 1.5 or 2, so it's a pretty good set. All 4 of these movies only had standard Blu-rays released of them, no special editions or anything, so you aren't really losing anything by getting them in a boxset either.

      Glad my son saw this as I had Cats Eye and The Shining single blu rays in my hand. This was a better price overall. Looking forward to watching Cats Eye again as I haven't seen it in over 30 years!

      This is a nice little collection of some of King's greatest films (although the Shining version here was by Kubrik and loosely interpreted the book). Great start to gear up for Halloween.

      I love this boxset except for the fact that some disc are layered over each other. The movies are some of my favorite and is a good value for the price.

      This Blu-Ray was comprised of (4) King Classics. It is a perfect addition to any collection at a great price. Compact so it doesn't take up to much space.
