This movie was hyped up so much that I expected to at least be entertained. Alas! It was no to be so. I enjoy Stephen King books very much, but it is rare that movie adaptations of his stories live up to their origin. There are a few exceptions, such as "The Shawshank Redemption" that captures his voice and his ability to master the magic of storytelling. This one, however, fails on every level possible. Trite, bording, boring, and boring. And this is coming from someone who loves slow suspense movies. I was so disappointed. :(
Read the book twice over the years, but had never seen the film. Excellent adaptation. There are quite a few similarities between the set design in the Marston house and the Hewitt house in Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Thanks Tobe Hooper.

I live in the same state as Stephen King I don't think there's a bad horror movie that he could ever write! Why do you think all of Hollywood wants to make his novels in the horror movies I hate to say if anybody gives this less than 5 skulls you don't have one including a brain.
