Storm of the Century

Storm of the Century is a 1999 horror tv miniseries written by Stephen King and directed by Craig R. Baxley . Promotional material for the miniseries claimed that it was King's first ever story written exclusively for a miniseries, but was actually his second after the not-as-well-known Golden Years. King would later publish the screenplay in book form, with the screenplay format intact.



A powerful storm hits the fictional small town of Little Tall Island off the coast of Maine. While trying to deal with the storm, the citizens of the town are visited by Andre Linoge (played by Colm Feore), a strange man who apparently knows all of the townsfolks darkest secrets. After having killed one of the towns residents, Linoge is jailed. Even though he is kept in jail by the town's constable, Mike Anderson (played by Timothy Daly ), he is somehow able to continue killing from within his jail cell. Linoge, constantly repeating "Give me what I want and I will go away", continues to kill and threaten to destroy the town until the townspeople are willing to listen to his demands. However, when they find out what he wants, they must make a difficult decision on whether or not to give him something that none of the citizens wants to give up.
