A very cool movie I love all of Stephen king movies

I love this movie please release it on digital. I have worn out my dvd.

Posted By: Selina - November 30th, 2012 12:23:03 pm EST

I've read The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer, but, just like Storm of the Century, there is no book titled Rose Red to accompany this. I know the screenplay of Storm of the Century was given a limited release and always hoped they'd do the same with this, but it never happened. (Uhm, Mr. King, we know you're busy but - could ya? Please?) I just watched the DVD of this again the other day - and you can bet I'll watch it again in about a month or so. (Probably less...)

Loved the movie, freaked me out, I love a good horror story. I have read the Diary but now I want to read the book.

I loved this movie. I'd like to buy the book

Posted By: Liz - October 19th, 2012 6:19:22 pm EDT

wow... this film did not get enough credit. Maybe the acting is so so.. maybe some of the characters are annoying, but you can't tell me you weren't a little bit spooked. ESPECIALLY being a woman. (women never turn up when they are swallowed by the house) the ghosts are terrifying & Annie's powers are intriguing. come on now folks! you're not always gonna get a GRADE A horror film, but at LEAST give this mini series a B for effort!

I've read the book and seen the movie both are just Wonderful!! The movie always scares my pants off!

I loved Rose Red:)

Posted By: Katherine1997 - May 12th, 2012 1:21:34 pm EDT

I love the movie Rose Red and have ever since I was a young child. My mother and I have even made it a tradition to watch the movie when it comes on Sci-Fi every Halloween. It was a part of what gave me the want to write, which can be largely acreddited to Mr. King. I found it interesting to find out that he was the pizza delivery guy, every time I watch a King movie I try to find him if he does indeed make an appearance. I find the description highly accurate and enjoyed reading it.

Hi everybody! I love this film. Rose red is one of my favorite film :) I have been trying to figure out the song in Rose Red at the bar scene where the song goes something like I know some day I may go away or something.. .

I loved this movie i've watched it so many times

Posted By: Lovelylisa - January 24th, 2012 9:54:59 pm EST

Brilliant and cleaver, I hired the movie of the series 10 years ago, I was hooked and watched it in one sitting, I was very tired at work the next day. I have never forgotten this awesome movie, if you love ghostly horror then this is a no.1 must see. *****

Posted By: -cuddlebug- - October 17th, 2011 8:15:36 pm EDT

This movie was amazing I can't wait to see to during every Halloween. The first time I seen it, Rose Red had me on the edge of my seat and I love how the movie ends.

Posted By: Anonymous - September 8th, 2011 5:31:59 pm EDT

I've looked the film now I think 10 times, but it is still the most awesome horror-movie I've seen so far... The lenght isn't boring or something like this it is just wonderful how you must watch this movie if you've seen the half of it. The first time I saw this movie I wanted to stop at the half but I can't because it's so great and if you stop you can't walk in youre own house if you don't have an annie-bot next to you^^. A Must-Have-Seen!!!

Posted By: Lexi - September 6th, 2011 11:22:22 am EDT

This is a very good explanation but the movie is about the house Rose Red and I think the houses actions should be mentioned also, it makes the description a lot more interesting, other than just explaining the characters.

Posted By: Anonymous - August 6th, 2011 12:11:40 pm EDT

this movie/miniseries is clearly one of the very best Ive seen so far. Even though its quite long it never loses its suspense. It is amazing. Story great, atmosphere great, actors/actresses great, location more than great. One of the things I liked the most were the reviews of the history of the Rimbauer family. I am so glad I got it on DVD so I can enjoy it over and over again. I guess I will never understand how Stephen King manages to come up with such brilliant ideas.

Posted By: AprilAmazing - June 29th, 2011 1:23:08 pm EDT

This movie is absolutely amazing, I cant wait to read the book!

Posted By: KarlaJo - May 28th, 2011 4:32:46 pm EDT

My family and I have watched this many times and we never tire of it. The characters are rich, the plot is interesting, and it is scary without being too gory. Matt Ross' performance as Emery Waterman is notable because of the way he developed a difficult character in deep and believable ways. This is a good old-fashioned ghost story and I really like it.

I love this movie.. Stephen King`s the best

Posted By: Amber - April 1st, 2011 2:43:52 pm EDT

The movie sucked the effects were terrible was not scary at all very boring but the books amazing.

Posted By: Amy Man's Angel - February 24th, 2011 2:22:50 pm EST

Is this an actual book or not??? I've looked everywhere and only the movie comes up. Also The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer is terrible. If Rose Red is a book I would like to red it please!!

Posted By: Steemer - February 10th, 2011 1:40:45 pm EST

hey i really like ur books and movies i hope u make some more

Posted By: Sage - January 24th, 2011 12:19:58 pm EST

This movie is Amazing. I can't count how many times I have watched it. I love how the main girl in the story autistic with telekinetic abbilities. It makes things much more interesting.

Posted By: Tricia - January 21st, 2011 9:44:25 pm EST

I have loved what stephen kings written since early 80's. He just takes me right in to his stories. I have on more than several occasions read a book, then seen the movie. No surprise the characters look just like I pictured. Been totally hooked . Even got my kids at early teens turned on to his reading. I always hear he is difficult to read, I feel as though it is like a play script type ,extreme detail. He lets you see it how he does. That is why he is my top notch arthur. He can scare me to death, make me laugh or cry. Best wishes to Stephen King and may he continue to keep us entertained well. Thank you with all my interests always, Tricia Morris

Posted By: Justin Barnes - November 15th, 2010 11:30:37 am EST

so, i saw this movie when I was very young, lol, I barely remember it. But I was told this was a book, not a I thinking of a different author? Because my friend said Stephen King wrote a book called ROSE RED and it's about a haunted mansion or something like that, and I know it's not THE SHINING, because I have that, am I confuseD?

Posted By: McDave27 - October 27th, 2010 12:12:36 am EDT

Great movie. Loved Steve's cameo as the pizza guy, it really tickled me to see him portrayed that way. By the way, if you ever do read these, uncle Stevie, good luck with the signing. I wish I could be there, but it was sold out before I could get my hands on the tickets.

Posted By: Brit - October 12th, 2010 3:45:32 pm EDT

I haven't read the book but I have seen most of the movie and I loved it! That movie got me addicted to Stephan King. Now I read all of his books and watch all of his movies. In my english class I am actually writing about him :)

Posted By: Beth - September 24th, 2010 8:50:57 pm EDT
I cant find the book anywhere! I cant find the book in a 200 mile radius i really wish i could find the book!

I am currently in the process of reading On Writing, assigned as a summer reading book. I really enjoy it so far, I think more than I have enjoyed your other books. I mostly think this because the majority of your books are kind of creepy, and i dont particurly enjoy horror stoies. Although i do enjoy reading about your life and your opinions. Many of the movies ive seen when i was younger that stuck with me, you wrote. I was quite suprised to discover this. I had already known that IT was written by you but other movies such as Red Rose, Dreamcatcher, and The Firestarter I never imagined were written by you( sorry to repeat, I couldnt think of another way to put it). I really shouldnt be suprised now that i think about it. They are completely your type of horror stories. I find your kind of horror stories the best because they are not filled with blood and gore, but real horror that actually makes a person scared in a deeper type of way. I cant even think of another example of a story like yours at the moment, although I feel as if theres one thats obviously there that I just cant grasp. The point of writing this I guess is to tell you or whoever will read this if anyone, the importance of your stories to me. For some reason they just stand out to me out of all the creepy movies ive seen. The Firestarter I mainly always liked because my sisters name is charlie, and I liked to think that I was somehow sophisticed or something for some one my age. So when I was younger I pretended to be(and most the time was) interested in deeper things.(I dont think im so much more advanced now, but I guess every little kid thinks theyre special). Dreamcatcher stuck with me mainly because it was completely discusting to me. The only thing I could remember from that movie was a scene with a man in narrow bathroom in a cabin who was constipated because of an alien in his body. I think that the he ended up pooing out the alien which maybe ate him or something like that. Its been awhile since ive seen that one. The main thing that sticks out to me about that scene was that the room was very small, dark and kind a blue in a way.. Rose Red. Ive spent a very long time wondering about this movie. I saw it when I was eleven, I think. I dont remember too many details from it except that it was about a haunted house. For some reason ive always liked it. I guess because at that time of my life I spent a lot of time at one of my friends housewhose mother took care of me and my sister probly more that my own parents have. That was when everything was good. I dont remember too much from that time, Rose Read is just one of my few random memories. Ever since though ive always wondered about the movie. I forgot what the title was but I knew what it was about and that it existed. I almost convinced myself once that I made it up because I couldnt find it anywhere. Well I dont think I have anything more to write about. I was just excited that I finally rediscovered those movies and figured id write something about them. Sorry if this is boring whoever has to read this, if anyone does. Sincerely Jelena Terrill

I like the movie it was mentely challaging and a challage I lost but proud to say a respect for mentel munipulation in Movie making and I hope to right my own book just as challaging to the mind thank's stephenking for a lot of thing

I love the movie Rose Red. My fave characters are Annie Wheaton and Rachel Wheaton. I have never read the book. I would love to read the book Rose Red.
Posted By: EAP - July 7th, 2010 11:00:11 pm EDT
this is the best movie and book ever made except maybe desparation. i only wish that there was a better ending to langoliers wat happened to the blind girl anyway
Posted By: ActressKG - April 27th, 2010 9:48:36 am EDT
Stephen King is one of the most amazing writers of all time. :) well worth reading what he writes and watching anything based on his books/scripts.
Posted By: Babygirl - April 20th, 2010 8:51:31 am EDT
i love this movie i have never read the book though
Posted By: EllenXxXzena - March 29th, 2010 2:37:18 am EDT
This is my favourite of all time. And no, I'm not kidding. I'm not sure why, it just is. I wish Stephen King would publish the short story this movie is based off of.
[There is no short story from which this was based.  It was written just for the teleplay.]

Posted By: TJK ERNST - March 17th, 2010 12:35:22 pm EDT
THIS MOVIE IS THE BOMB!!!! This is the movie that started getting me into Stephen King's work. My favorite character is Emmery (not sure if that's how you spell his name), just for the fact that he's crazy and he breaths funny.
Posted By: Laurianne - February 19th, 2010 3:09:10 pm EST
I met Stephen King on day in passing I reconized him but since we were in public I didn't want to cause a stir... we never spoke out loud only through our minds he understood perfectly..Annie is very close to my name (Laurianne) and somehow I feel that part of the movie was related to our meeting.....anyways I have some of the abilities that Annie has so Mr. King if you would like to hear more about the things I have seen let me know. (((HUGS)))
Posted By: LeeH - February 8th, 2010 8:26:47 am EST
I absolutely loved this film. I am a keen fan of horror and suspense/psychological thrillers and this film ticks all the boxes for me. Well worth watching and even though it is a long film, that should not put you off watching it.
Posted By: Tina - February 2nd, 2010 11:12:41 am EST
i think there should be a rose red two when steve rimbauer comes back to see the new condos but when he arrives old rose red is there instead
Posted By: MsTrssButrFly - January 31st, 2010 12:20:32 pm EST
i love this movie! i saw it on tv the first time i ever watched it. then i bought the movie and thought it was the coolest haunted house movie ever. very well written and directed. the special effects are amazing.
Posted By: Cathy - January 21st, 2010 12:53:09 pm EST
i love all of stephens movies and have read all his books.
Posted By: Judy - January 3rd, 2010 12:30:11 pm EST
I was just informed through the grapevine that the actual location for Rose Red is going to be demolished. I was just wondering if that was true. thank you for everything you have done when making the books and movies.

The book is out there - just not written by Stephen King - it's a diary of sorts - VERY GOOD also...
Posted By: Dina - October 29th, 2009 11:36:20 pm EDT
stephen king is an awesome author when i saw this movie i was really impressed on how well of a job he did on this book and movie. it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Posted By: Becca - October 9th, 2009 3:27:21 pm EDT
The book was great, the film amazing, this story took my little paranormal heart for a spin. I loved the part when King played the pizza man, it cracked me up. 10 stars to all the actors and actresses in the movie, they made it very realistic.
Posted By: Kyle - September 13th, 2009 11:00:38 pm EDT
hey lu there is a book but it is about the life of Ellen Rimbauer its called The Diary of Ellen Rimbauer: My Life at Rose Red This movie is frickin awesome
Posted By: Lu - August 27th, 2009 5:57:57 pm EDT
i like the move but i will like to read the book if their is on out there

I love this movie..... i cant watch it over and over again its one of my fav....
Posted By: Anonymous - July 26th, 2009 11:22:23 am EDT
I thought this movie had a very good storyline but I found it to be about 2 hours 2 long. A 4 1/2 hour movie is long unless you can keep me on the edge of my seat the whole time. The problem was is I was only on the edge of my seat for about 2 1/2 hours.
Posted By: King Freak - July 14th, 2009 1:26:56 pm EDT
I liked this movie and I read up on the house that he got the idea from
Posted By: Sweetiebabe85 - June 29th, 2009 1:09:44 am EDT
i have watched this movie so many times i can recite the lines as the movie plays. i watch it once every 2 months just from having withdrawals from it. awesome!
Posted By: Szap - June 15th, 2009 2:55:02 pm EDT
I agree that this is one of the best horror movies out there. It's suspensful and the mythology behind the haunting makes is intreging and makes sense. There's no unnecessary gore and the experience is actually scary not just a gross out fest.
Posted By: Minnie X - May 14th, 2009 10:09:45 am EDT
Rose Red is Awesomeeeeee!!! I'm your Thai fan.

Please bring this out in written form. it is the best, I have watched it at least a dozen times
Posted By: Unicorns Design - April 11th, 2009 10:22:30 am EDT
I truly enjoyed this mini series when it aired and I have a VHS copy at home. However I wish I had a print copy of this series.

Posted By: Jason - April 5th, 2009 10:41:38 pm EDT
This is what started me with Stephen King. Great movie, I really wish that he would release this story rewritten as a novel or at least publish the screenplay...
Posted By: Leigh - March 2nd, 2009 2:02:40 am EST
I thought this was one of the best horrors I've watched in a long time all this gory stuff they show now is totally bogus... Dream catcher and IT are also in this catogory but I thought the Mist was abit of a let down though it did give me a panick attack 0.o. Cant wait to watch more of His movies and read more of his books
Posted By: B@k3R - February 24th, 2009 12:49:01 pm EST
love the movie thought it was great and hope to own it on dvd sum day haha
Posted By: Mandy - February 9th, 2009 11:19:24 am EST
I loved this movie I remember being merely 11 when it showed on television for what i believe was the first time. My cousin and I stayed on the phone the whole time. :] Genius yet again. If i was a centipede I'd give it a hundred thumbs up. but since I am not. Two. :]
Posted By: Lotus - February 3rd, 2009 8:17:55 pm EST
I love rose red and I believe that the house (not thornwood castle) Exists... Best movie ever. seriously. I laughed the whole way through. (don't get scared) If you're don't like scary movies, too bad, you've gotta watch this one!
Posted By: Shorty - February 3rd, 2009 7:28:16 pm EST
this particular piece of work really made me have creepish chills crawl up my spine, but regardless i loved the story, it was full of suspense and at times heroism. it really made me jump a few times but i dont care it was awesome one i could read and watch over and over again
Posted By: Francis - January 30th, 2009 4:11:41 pm EST
I have always said that Rose Red is my favorite movie ever...i was hoping it would be a book but i read on this site that it won't be so i won't push that...i think my favorite part of all Stephen King's movies is that he's in them.
Posted By: Garfield - December 29th, 2008 6:32:13 pm EST
dude you seriously need to publish this as a book
Posted By: Louise-o-uk - December 25th, 2008 11:49:17 pm EST
I love this film and every other film stephen king has written or been involved in. I dont know about every one else but one of the things i love about all the King movies is the fact that the cast(going by the movies ive seen so far)are people who are not the high profile actors/actresses that star in most of the movies these days and are spread all over the papers ect, but great actors/actresses who are so underrated for their work! But thats just me..let me know if you feel the same...oooo and while im here im wondering if people would like to see a movie made from Rose Madder and Bag of undecided as i dont want the images ive imagined through reading of both books ruined by a badly made movie yet i want so bad to see them on tv/dvd! Happy christmas btw xx
Posted By: Rosered89 - December 23rd, 2008 7:19:52 pm EST
Absolutely the best film I have ever seen. It has been my favorite ever since it aired and it always will be. It's a amazing twist on every classic haunted house story. The story is phenomenal; almost a bittersweet romance drenched with beauty and despair. From the beautiful (and sinister) house, to the gloomy skies and dead leaves, Rose Red is captivating in a way that no other film grasps; into your mind. The only part missing? A score of the powerful, heartbreaking music which I have searched for a number of years, but to no avail. Mr. King is a genius.
Posted By: Anonymous - December 18th, 2008 1:05:59 pm EST
Loved watching Red Rose, it ws very watchable but any chance it will be published? Love to read what I've watched and vica versa.
Posted By: Sherrie4222 - December 15th, 2008 1:16:56 am EST
I LOVED this show!!! I don't feel it's the BEST ever done of Stephen Kings movies, but I loved it. It kept me glued to the t.v. set. I watch it a lot.

one great movie
Posted By: Shir_liberman - October 10th, 2008 6:12:46 am EDT
This is in fact my fav S.K movie after the stand. it's so good i watched it a few times with my best friend.
Posted By: Marilyn - September 23rd, 2008 2:49:25 pm EDT
I love seeing Stephen in one of his book/movie because it tells me he approved the screenplay
Posted By: Jeffrey - September 19th, 2008 10:13:58 pm EDT
why did red rose have such a bad ending it did not make or have any meaning
Posted By: Jo - September 12th, 2008 1:19:05 pm EDT
Given the research assuredly done by Stephen King, this is a very competent portrayal of his vision. Most of his stories are not translated well in the screenplays, but this one wasn't bad at all. I am a huge admirer of Kings' works and this one combined one of my favorite "haunts"- Winchester Mansion and Kings' imagination, a winning combination.
Posted By: Sal - September 9th, 2008 10:00:58 pm EDT
I watch Rose Red once I believe it to be true story and It's was. I believe in everything supernatural. I love to visit Rose Red in the future one day.
Posted By: Courtney - August 22nd, 2008 11:10:41 am EDT
I loved Rose red because I love stories about haunted houses and I love ghost stories and I know that I watched the movie alot and I am a belevier in ghosts and this book and movie is really good and I would like to say that I know that it is based on a true story and this one really tells the story about a women who just plain had enough of what her husband done to her and she was sick of her heart being broken and she truned on the tables on him when she threw him out the window and killed him.
Posted By: MadLass - August 17th, 2008 6:54:33 pm EDT
I Love Rose Red I Must Have Watched It At Least 20 Times!
Posted By: Mihkwan - August 15th, 2008 4:58:36 am EDT
Loved it. It's one of my favorites.
