Hi guys, since my review on Rose Red is on the front page. Here are my thoughts on both Rose Red and the 1999 remake of the Haunting.
When I first watch this movie, I did not know that this a reboot of the original 1963 version. However, unlike the latter.

I was a SKEMERS member decades ago. Does that group still exist? I was also on SK's autograph for three years only to get a book (not signed) and letter from SK stating he quit that practice. Being in Jacksonville, NC (home of more than 50,000 Marines (one of my Alma Maters), I will probably never get to see SK in person and get a signing. Does anyone know if he is coming near the coast of NC?
