I understand that Stephen King has written a new film called "Rose Red" based on the "true" life story of the Mansion in Washington State called "Rose Red".  In 41 years, over 26 people disappeared or were murdered on its premises.  Some under very mysterious circumstances indeed.

Check out the Parapsychology Dept. research, of Beaumont University into the subject at:

http://www.beaumontuniversity.net/programs2.html

Do you think it's a hoax?

For the record - I do.

Here`s another link on some info about the movie....

http://w1.192.telia....eredseatle.html

As for the truth behind it.... I find it hard to believe the account is true so far just purely based on the fact that there are very little sites about it off Google...
But i'll keep looking.
None the less... i would still go see the movie... looks good to me.

I'm here today because of the past, i respect my self and all i have become and there for i do not regret the road i've walked.

;)  Aaawww, Shucks!  Thanks Tommy!

By the way, does anyone know anything about Beaumont University?  I "registered" with the parapsychology Dept and I've received an official looking e-mail in return.  However, if you check out their website, one of the parapsychology courses for the degree is a study of Rose Red.  VERY GOOD hoax, if that is what it is!

Thanks to Mystify I saw this, which appears to answer my question

King placed the fictional Rose Red house at Spring Street and Sixth Avenue near the turn of the century, on a foundation of blood and tragedy that spawns its supernatural forces.

God, he is good!  Sorry that he's going blind though.

Does anyone else have, as I do, every book he's ever published?

I Actually had the chance last night to watch the first part of Rose Red`s 6 hour mini series. It was actually pretty good.
Now the characters in the movie are nothing close to resembling the ones off the site Nessy first provided, thus leaving me to believe that King's was a rendition based on possible true accounts.

It was a very good story none the less and hope to get to watch the other 4 hours left.

Sorry, but i thought the movie sucked.  It was terrible, even for King.  The acting is so crappy, but i guess thats what I get for watching a made-for-tv movie.

Stephen King comes up with great ideas for books and they always start brilliantly.  BUT he seems to get bored 3/4 of the way through and hurry his endings (they usually end up pretty 'panny' me thinx).  Shame though.

MC, I never said it was up for awards. It`s a paramount pictures movie. It`s not supposed to be the greatest as it was made for TV. I enjoyed the story behind it and found it none the less entertaining...

ScaryD you hit the nail on the head there, the build up is great but ending is rushed or flawed in some way and i generally come away dissatisfied from king's novels and TV movie adaptions - the Stand is a great example of this.

Anyway a link about Steven King stopping writing:

never take me too seriously
