| Definitely Not King's Worst
An explosion in the most secret laboratory of the USA. The old janitor Harlan Williams is incubated by totally unknown chemicals. Now he changes and becomes younger instead of older. The government is interested in finding out everything about this changes and hunts the fugitive Harlan.

Stephen King's made-for-TV movies are so hit and miss. Not sure how much this is his fault, since it's really out of his hands by that point. But either way, I think this happens to be one of the better ones, even if not one of the more famous. Perhaps because it is very, very light on the horror aspects? I'm not sure.

At four hours, the film is long, but actually very well-paced, unlike the dreadfully boring "Langoliers". Allegedly another, longer version exists? I don't know. And even more interesting is how this ties into "Firestarter", though the connection is not obvious and may not have been intended by the director.
