Looks like a nice little set though. I think the first one is great. One of my favourite movies based off King stories actually. I enjoyed also 2 and 3 so will pick this up.

I really liked the first one but don't recall ever seeing the other two or if they are indeed any good in comparison, can anyone say how they fare against it?

It's a nice set though and I'm tempted to pick it up direct from Arrow for the reward points.

They are not in the same league as the first. I found them watchable though……

A lot of money for only one of the films in UHD so a pass for me. Nice set though and kudos to Arrow for their continued support for the format.
