4.0 out of 5 stars One of my fav stephen king movies! Sept. 15 2012
By Edward III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Thinner has always been one of my favorite King movies for some reason and if your reading this review you probably have already seen it and are interested in what they did with the blu ray. I was amazed at the quality of the transfer of this Blu Ray. The audio and picture are amazing, but I was seriously disappointed that it is a Bare bones release with no special features what so ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars White man from town gets thinner! Aug. 13 2012
By jjceo - Published on Amazon.com
Billy Halleck (Robert Burke) is the biggest lawyer in town, both by reputation and size. Weighing in at 297 pounds he is already on a diet mandated and monitored by his wife who wants him to lose weight. Billy just won a big lawsuit for his client Richie Ginelli, called Mr. Mafia by Billy's daughter, who is an underworld crime boss. He celebrates the victory with dinner with his wife and while traveling home he is distracted and kills a 75 year old gypsy woman who is in town with a local carnival. Being the biggest lawyer in town and friends with the sheriff and the judge he barely gets into trouble even though he is clearly at fault and lies about what really happened. Knowing the system he manipulates the truth and he doesn't accept the responsibility for his careless driving and actions. He doesn't even get points on his driver's license.

After the court hearing the 109 year old gypsy grandfather of the victim touches Billy's face and says one word, "Thinner." Billy begins to quickly lose weight and no matter what he does he is facing death. Everyone involved in the case and the release of Billy including the judge and the sheriff are dying of strange diseases. The common cause seems to be the old gypsy grandfather who touched all those men and said one word to each one.

Billy begs forgiveness from the grandfather who tells him that if he doesn't leave the gypsy camp that his curse will get worse. Billy curses the gypsies as the White Man From Town because that is what the gypsies call him. Vengeance turns out to be a pie served cold!

This was a good movie if you are a Stephen King fan. I own the DVD and the book and I actually like the book better as it goes into much more detail as books often can do. Both are worth watching and reading and are a good story line and entertaining. If you love Stephen King it is hard to criticize him but this is a good story but not one of his best. It is still 4 stars as some of King's average books are far better than other author's best efforts.

This movie contains some foul language and some scenes are gross and spooky. If that is not your type of movie then be warned. I enjoyed this movie and I recommend it to you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I Like Thinner Oct. 11 2013
By Mort Neipp - Published on Amazon.com
First of all, I would rate this movie high because it is good. All aspects of it. I liked the setting in an out of the way location in New England. Brilliant story line. I now really do believe in Gypsi curses. The acting is superb. No movie could be better casted. Right down to the smallest part these actors did a wonderful job. I think I got this picture because of Joe Mantegna's treatment of the tough guy gangster roll he played. Kerry (let's see if I can spell this right) Wurhr is so pretty as the Gypsi princess. the music was perfect. Beautifully preformed. If you have a weakness for the macabre, as I do, and you like suspense, there is never a dull moment in this one. By the way, like Alfred Hitchcock, Steven King puts himself in all of his pictures. But unlike Uncle Alfred he has speaking parts. Plus he's a pretty good actor with a flare for humor. Two thumbs up for this one. Mort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Stephen King Story! Sept. 14 2012
By Mule04 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
When it comes to Stephen King you will get a very good and creative story and movie. I have not read a book or watched a movie based off Stephen King that I have not liked. You will get the same satisfaction with this movie. This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat to see what happens next. I loved the movie and can't wait for even more Stephen King movies get to blu-ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thinner Thinner June 24 2012
By Endora Aphrattos - Published on Amazon.com

For the most part I love films based on Stephen King's books. This is a super story! It chronicles the journey a man must take in hopes to free himself of a Gypsy curse after a tragic accident claimed the life of an elderly Romani woman. The man, a popular attorney, was negligent and "distracted" or he would not have had the accident. When the police, judge and officials conspire to free the attorney of any criminal charges the olde Gypsy man takes matters into his own hands laying a curse at their feet. Our main character's variety of the curse is to become "Thinner" and eventually wasting away. But perhaps his price to be free of the curse might be to high costing him more than he'd stand to lose.
