Firestarter: Rekindled

Firestarter: Rekindled has Malcolm McDowell and Dennis Hopper starring in a movie based on the works of Stephen King!  If this movie came out in 1982 it may have had the star power, and budget, to be a true classic.  But Rekindled didn't come out when those actors' star power was at its peak, it was made in 2002 as an original Sci-Fi Channel two part miniseries.  Does this story of Charlie's next battle against The Shop keep with King's original vision?  Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob to find out!
