An alright short story
10 May 1999 | by (Wexford Ireland) – See all my reviews

I bought this film in a 2'nd hand store about 2 years ago and i have only watched it once since then. it is a low tamed collage film that feels very hollow. it is only 30 mins long. it is alright to watch when you have nothing better to do. but i don't agree with the cover when stephen king says that this is the best movie made from my stuff... this story comes from stephen kings book night shift and it is about a man who has to make a choice with his mother who is dying slowly he can help her die or he can watch her die which is killing him???? this comes with two more stories the bogey man and a bouns story. the bogey man is stephen kings as well and is a lot better. all in all it is worth watching once if you are a stephen king fan. (5/10)
