When Paul and Brutal place Percy in the straitjacket, they are using one with buckles. Straitjackets that use buckles were not introduced until the 1980's. Before then, they were the type that laced up through eyelets. See more »

Adios, Chief! Drop us a card from Hell, let us know if it's hot enough...
Brutus "Brutal" Howell:

He's paid what he's owed; he's square with the house again, so keep your goddamn hands off him!

There are no opening credits after the title has been shown, followed by the opening scene for place of film. Although it is now commonplace for films to not have opening credits, in 1999 it was somewhat rather unusually and it was considered for a trademark of director Frank Darabont. See more »
The length of the movie was perfect. It kept to the story to an amazing degree. The few changes didn't hurt the feeling nor the telling. The story itself is stirring and captivating. The casting of the parts and their portrayal were right on. This is one of the best movie versions of a Steven King novel I've ever seen, and I think I've seen them all. If you're prone to tears at a film, take extra tissues, you'll need them. The theater I was in was a mass of sniffles through the end credits. If you like fantasy/drama the film cannot be missed. There are some graphic scenes that may upset some, but this is Steven King. This is a movie I plan to add to my video collection as soon as the Letter Box version hits the shelves.
