Movie Info

The first story Stephen King wrote specifically for a television miniseries, Storm of the Century is set in Little Tall Island, a small town off the coast of Maine. The citizens are bracing themselves for what is expected to be the worst snowstorm in 100 years when a mysterious stranger named Andre Linoge (Colm Feore) arrives with a simple command: "Give me what I want and I'll go away." Andre is, in fact, an emissary of Satan, and what he wants is one of the children of Little Tall Island, whom he will raise to take over his assignment on Earth -- it seems that Satan's lifespan, although far longer than that of a normal human, is not unlimited, and he will need a replacement for that time when he must vacate his position. Andre knows everyone's secrets and can make their lives a living hell (no pun intended); he can also destroy the city at will. And only one person in town has the strength to stand up to Andre -- the sheriff, Mike Anderson (Tim Daly). While originally written for television, Stephen King's novelization of Storm of the Century was published shortly after the series was originally broadcast.more

a little long but still very good

It sags in the middle under a lengthy running time, but the premise and execution are terrific... and unlike many King adaptations, it really sticks the dismount.

Audience Reviews for Stephen King's 'Storm of the Century'


A pretty good made for tv King flick. It's one of the few that he wrote for the small screen that wasn't based on his books. It has great actors and the villain of the flick is one of his best. I recommend watching this during a snow storm for maximum effect.

Brilliant Stephen King's long horror-thriller storm film made in television and I like Tim Daly's character who has the greatest courage and fearless than the population of Little Fall. Colm Feore does a wonderful performance as the devil aka Angus Linoge. His flaw teeth shocked me a bit at the first scene when he quietly growled.
