In the scene where Thad is writing in his office with the sparrows on the window, the sharpness of the pencil he uses changes back and forth from very sharp to very dull. This is the scene where Thad stabs himself in the hand. See more »

The diabolical alliance of George A. Romero and Stephen King quietly delivered expectations but it's not certainly a great horror film.
"The Dark Half" is pretty interesting and well directed but it's something you've seen before. There's a decent amount of gore, suspense is well crafted, an effective score and regular acting. Maybe the fact that I grew with the 80's Slasher movies made me think every minute about "Basket Case" and compare it with "The Dark Half".
A decent horror movie with a thrilling ending. Deserves a watch.
