    Synopsis


    Thinner
    The plot of Thinner concerns massively overweight lawyer Billy Halleck (Robert John Burke), who is receiving an oral gift from his wife (Lucinda Jenney) while driving down the street one night, when he becomes so carried away that he runs over an old Gypsy woman (Irma St. Paule), killing her. Nobody in town likes the traveling Gypsies much, so Halleck's pals -- a judge and a cop -- cover up the incident. After the cover-up, the dead woman's father, Tadzu Lempke (Michael Constantine), touches Halleck's face and whispers "thinner." Pretty soon, Halleck is losing weight at an incredible rate of more than 40 pounds a week. He tries everything, but learns that Lempke is the only man who can remove the curse. In the meantime, the judge dies of a mysterious skin ailment, and the cop commits suicide. When begging and pleading with Lempke doesn't work, Halleck turns to more drastic methods of persuasion. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

      thinner is pretty good movie not as good as other stephen kings books made into movies but pretty good it is more of a thriller than a horror movie there are some funny one liners so if you like a good thriller i would check it out the blu-ray looks good and sound good but there is no extras on it but worth buying if you are a fan of the movie

      It's always a hot or miss with Stephen King films as he has one of the worst track records for film adaptations of his books. This one was ok for me not the best but definitely watchable....
