A shapeshifting mother and son look to feed on the lifeforce of young virgins.
Dir Mick Garris
With Brian Krause, Mädchen Amick, Alice Krige

The only feature based on an original Stephen King screenplay, this loopy tale of a shapeshifting mother and son looking to feed on the lifeforce of young virgins is preposterous stuff perhaps, but boy is it fun. Marking King’s first partnership with frequent future collaborator Mick Garris, the film is also notable for cameos from several horror legends including Tobe Hooper, Clive Barker and Joe Dante.
