Among the highlights: In "Battleground," a merciless hit man (William Hurt) offs a toy manufacturer and then finds himself attacked in his own apartment by a battalion of indefatigable toy soldiers; directed by Brian Henson, the episode has no dialogue and some terrific effects work. In "Umney's Last Case," William H. Macy is amusing as a crime writer who cruelly toys with his literary alter ego, an arch, fedora-wearing gumshoe (also Macy); it's an acting tour de force and a story that takes some deft and intriguing turns. "The Road Virus Heads North," with Tom Berenger as a horror novelist who finds himself pursued by well, by a painting (guess you had to be there), is perhaps the scariest of the lot; it's also the best shot, with a cool jazz soundtrack and a nifty ending. Less successful is "Crouch End," set in a sinister part of London where "thin spots" in the earth lead to creepy new dimensions (nice premise, but it's overwritten and fails to sustain its Twilight Zone weirdness), while "You Know They Got a Hell of Band" is only fitfully effective in its depiction of Rock & Roll Heaven, Oregon, a town where Elvis is mayor and the rest of the living dead range from Hendrix and Joplin to Duane Allman and Buddy Holly. The three-disc set's decent if unexceptional special features include "inside looks" at the making of several episodes, actor interviews, and more. --Sam Graham
The only one that I didn't like at all was the second episode 'Crouch End'.
Somehow we get no emotional payoff and the ending is actually just a little confusing...as in, "that's it, it's just stopping right there?"
The stories are very well done, great acting, great photography and amazing soundtrack.

Another delightful Stephen King offering. A number of short episodes with Stephen's suspenseful charm. Each with its own unique twists and turns to delight thrill seekers.Published 2 months ago by Terry Govier
My family enjoys Stephen King novels and watching movies/TV series based on them. This however, was weird. Most stories have endings that don't make sense. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Gavlynn
