Summary, etc.:
Based on the best-seller, Stephen King's Thinner stars Robert John Burke and Joe Mantegna in a story of supernatural terror and countdown to the ultimate payback. A 109-year old gypsy, hell-bent on revenge, exacts a curse so shocking it compels its victim to gorge himself in an effort to avoid shrinking away to nothingness. With time running out and a torture so bizarre and powerful, even death seems a more likely option.
