Hope me remember a movie i watched once as a kid... a plane has landed out of time some how (cant remember the exact details) and the horizon is being munched up (the survivors can hear it), the sound when they looked at the horizon was very memorable.... they just make it out in time....

So I watched as a kid in australia maybe mid to late 90s but it was a night movie so an adult movie (staying in a cabin as a kid with the family and i was meant to be asleep).... the horizon munching sound was the bit that has stayed with me.... any guesses?

It is! It is the Langoliers! With Bronson Pinchot, of all people, as the asshole type-a businessman who causes most of the trouble.

Langoliers has to be one of King's cocaine period books, right?

Whoa, and according to the Wikipedia link, the director was the same guy who did the film adaptation of Thinner. Talk about getting stuck scraping the bottom of Stephen King's impressively deep barrel. you will believe that weight loss can be terrifying...
