Compilation of five horror stories from _"Tales from the Darkside" (1983)_ that takes the viewer into the dark world of vampires, cursed objects and sinister humor. Despite the title, only the final story is by Stephen King.
After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
Confederate Colonel John Singleton Mosby, known as the "Gray Ghost", and his Calvary, The Mosby Riders, take on General George Armstrong Custer's larger Union forces during the United States Civil War.
From the works of Stephen King. A film by Frank Darabont.
The Woman in the Room (1983) was a decent debut for future male weepy film maker Frank Darabont. The future king of chick-flicks-for-guys makes total use of a shoe string budget and directed a surprisingly watchable film. Unlike the other film that was included on the tape, this one follows the original story (found in the short story collection Night Shift).
A man is being feeling conflicted over a decision he feels that he must do. His mother is dying of a fatal illness. Everyday he visits he and watches her waste away. The doctors can't do anything for her except kill her pain. But the mother doesn't want to live like this anymore and asks him to help her. Can the good son make his mother's final request come true? What is her final wish? To find out you'll just have to watch THE WOMAN IN THE ROOM!
Like I said in the beginning. A nice adaptation that was made on a minuscule budget. Not a masterpiece but a nice short.
Recommended for Stephen King film fans.
