Dino De Laurentiis originally sought to produce this film in 1986 after completing _Maximum Overdrive (1986)_, another Stephen King adaptation and sought to have Sam Raimi direct, Scott Spiegel write and 'Bob Tapert' (qb) produce but they were busy with writing _Evil Dead 2 (1987)_, which Di Laurentiis would eventually produce..

I think his hand is back to normal because the curse has been lifted by then. He was also beginning to gain back his weight. See more »
Good adaptation of a Stephen King's novel, this movie is almost a exception, along with "The Shining" by Kubrick, in an effort to turn out the grim and uncanny world of Mr. King in images. The cast is perfect, especially Burke who gives a convincent and not far-fetched perform in the leading role of the lawyer cursed by a group of gipsies. Mantegna is excellent, too, as a mafia's boss who helps the lawyer to find a way out of his troubles. I give a 6 (six) to this.
