The blood drop on Mike Ryerson's pajama top changes. When first seen (when he is newly dead) it is a large spot on the pocket. Later, when he visits the doctor, the spot is nearly invisible in some shots. In other shots it is a very small drop slightly above the pocket. See more »
I'm trying to figure out why so many horror fans don't like this show...
As it really is a wonderful and suspenseful vampire tale! Stephen King - not normally my favorite horror writer - has created one of the absolute BEST modern vampire tales in this story, and this mini-series translation is absolutely true to the feel of his tale! Instead of splatterfest effects , this show hinges itself on a high-tension spiderweb of plotlines and sets up the vampire more as a behind-the-scenes controlling evil. The terror here is not in seeing the monster, it is in NOT seeing him and knowing that he and his minions are out there, somewhere, plotting and planning with the heros stumbling blindly after them like toddlers in the dark. Give this show a chance! It may just scare you!
