THE WORD is based on a novel by Irving Wallace. Despite what "Ale fish" said in his comments I have to disagree. He is basing his review on the released three hour version of an eight hour mini-series. I made the mistake of buying this version also. It's not worth the powder to blow it to hell.
I taped this mini-series when it originally aired. I have it in NH and hope to retrieve it within the next month or so. I'm more hopeful that I will be able to transfer it to DVD or VHS. I originally recorded it in Beta.
I started to watch the available VHS copy that I purchased. I turned it off after 20 minutes. Even though it's been years since I've seen it the cutting of the film was atrocious.
Hopefully, one day, "Ale fish" and everyone else will have a DVD copy of this mini-series. It's is truly an 8+ rating when seen in it's entirety.
