A fanged ominous monster lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King. Sinister events bring together a writer, fascinated with an old hilltop house, and a suave antiques dealer. Stephen King offers up two terrifying tales and an all-new story written for this movie. Five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic '50s horror comics. All work and no play makes the caretaker of an isolated resort go way off the deep end, terrorizing his son and wife. A banker, who's wrongly convicted of murder, plots a prison escape. A gentle giant of a prisoner with supernatural powers who brings a sense of spirit and humanity to his guards. Four friends reunite as adults to fight an invading alien force that controls human beings. Kathy Bates, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Christopher Plummer star in an atmospheric whodunit.
