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

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

King manufactures nightmares so adhesive that they could be Grimm and so primitive that they must be structuralist.

a little long but still very good

March 11, 2008 | Rating: 3/4

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.
