En route to Lake Tahoe for a much anticipated vacation, the Carver family is arrested for blowing out all four tires on their camper. Collie Entragian is the arresting officer, the self-made sheriff of a town called Desperation, Nevada, and the quintessential bad cop. Unbeknownst to the Carvers, Entragian regularly sniffs out passerbys on this stretch of road, and in fact has done in nearly every resident of his hometown. He can also change form and summon the help of creepy creatures, including scorpions, snakes and spiders. Written by

Without remembering exactly how the movie started, I was introduced at the scene where the couple were being arrested by an extremely creepy cop with a viciously unstable aura about him. The portrayal of the character was instantly awe inspiring and intriguing, as he read them their miranda rights, he slipped in the term "I am Going to kill you" as If it were protocol. This whole scene and, from there on, had me freaked inside-out and confused in a very good way. But in tradition of everything Steven King (except the original theatre version of 1408, that was brilliant) it turned sour at some point, exactly the point where someone mentioned a demon or a deity.
4 stars . 8 for the part I loved, -4 for the rest.
