I like most of Stephen king's books and movies except one. The movie IT. The first and only time I watched that movie I had nightmares for 3 days. But I finally got over that. I never had read or watched that movie again. But The Dreamcatcher was a strange movie. Better book than movie. The movie I would like to see someday on TV would be Under the Dome. That is a really great book. I had trouble putting it down because it was such a great book. I'm trying to collect most of his books and I only have about 8 of them so far. He's a great writer. The best of books I've read in years. Keep up the good work. Mary Morris

I can't believe I was just given that very poster that was used the a theater here where the Dino DeLaurentiis Studio is located in Wilmington when this movie came out....I loved the first one, not sure if I should sell it even tho I've had several offers on was an awesome movie and still is in my opinion.

I have loved this movie since it's debut in 1984. I even remember watching the trailer for it in the theaters. Unfortunatley I was only 11 at the time of it's release and unable to see it in theaters. Because of it's R rating I was not allowed in the theater. So, I had to wait till it came to Cable to watch it. Since that time I have seen this film countless times. I have been a big collector of the memorabillia of the film. When Firestarter 2:Rekindled premiered on Sci Fi in 2002 I was beside myself. I couldn't believe they finally made a sequel. However, I was a little disappointed with the plot. Plus the fact they brought back Rainbird. HE IS DEAD!!! I was so irritated with that fact how anyone could be so stupid to bring a DEAD character back to life. The only thing good from Firestarter Rekindled was the pyrokinetics and the Lot 23 kids. After learning they were gonna do a franchised remake of the original Firestarter done by the wife of Dino DeLaurentiis the producer of the original. Plus have Universal Studios do the film I had to pick myself up off the floor after passing out from the shock. I couldn't believe it. Another dream come true. Finally I will see my favorite story on the big screen. Let's hope they don't screw it up this time!!!

I was just on imdb and learnt that firestarter is getting a movie remake (set to be released in 2014, type firestarter in to imdb and it will come up with "firestarter 2014") and there is talk of making it a franchise. Also pet sematary and maximum overdrive (which I have not seen) are meant to get remakes.

Heck ya'. This was one of my favorite books and COULD have so much of a great follow up. 30 years later - either looking to start a family or has a family, does her kids have powers? Is her dad really dead? What's up with the company now? Does she 'cook' her own meals? boiling water, etc? What kind of new weapons would she have in her arsenal? What kind of musical 'visuals' could Stephen use? "Hot in the city?", "The kid is hot tonight?"... I love it!!!

i watched this movie back in grade school because im a stephen king scary movie fan and i love drew barrymore so much! watched it again in high school (1998) on HBO because of Drew Barrymore. now, i just wish Stephen King would write a sequel novel to this one with Charlie McGee all grown up with her chaotic pyrokinesis powers heightened and out of control after being dormant for a long time! a movie version of the sequel should follow with DREW BARRYMORE reprising her role! all these i pray thee

A really great film, Drew Barrymore was great in this.

great movie and the book that was the basis for the movie was great. No one could play Charlie McGee better than 9 year old Drew Barrymore!

Jamconsulting is an Idiot. The book was written in 1947? Oh ya sure.

I have seen this movie several times. So excellent I have never read the book. Written in 1947. Very futuristic for the time. I am putting 'Firerstarter' back on my read list.

To Crystal, i have not got round to reading this book YET but i always look out for Mr Kings books that have been turned into movies(to watch after ive read the book) and have to say i have not seen this anywhere apart from the net, so the only thing i can suggest is asking a friend who shops online to get it for you and give them the cash.... Hope this helps you.

I have been trying to get this movie for a long time. I realy like it, I am a big stephen king fan even though I am poor. I started watching his movies as a kids and my kids watch them too. They have seen the firestarter number two, but I don't like it as much as the first one. I want to show them this movie, plus I have not seen it for a whille. Please can someone tell me where to get it. I have no credit cards or cheeks, and having a hard time finding it.
