Secret Window [DVD] [2004]

David Koepp's adaptation of Stephen King's Secret Window debuts on DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.40:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, with subtitles available in both of those languages as well. Supplemental materials include an exceedingly self-effacing commentary from Koepp that in many ways is more entertaining than the film itself. Deleted scenes with optional commentary by the director, three different behind-the-scenes featurettes, and animated storyboards round out this solid release from Columbia TriStar.

Secret Window
From writer/director David Koepp (Stir of Echoes) comes this filmed adaptation of Stephen King's novella Secret Window, Secret Garden, one of four stories in the collection Four Past Midnight. Johnny Depp stars as Mort Rainey, a recently divorced author who decides to take some time off at his cottage. Unfortunately for Rainey, John Shooter (John Turturro), an unbalanced wannabe writer, tracks him down, claiming that Rainey plagiarized his work. Also starring Maria Bello, Charles S. Dutton, and Timothy Hutton, Secret Window is the second story from Four Past Midnight to be adapted as a film, the first being 1995's made-for-television The Langoliers. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
