The character of Col. Kurtz in the novel was changed to Col. Curtis for the movie so the audience wouldn't think it was a reference to the Apocalypse Now (1979) character, which it is in the novel. See more »
The length of Jonesy's facial hair changes throughout the movie. See more »

Man, where does Stephen King comes up with this things? Again, we have the childhood friends we think we know from "Stand by me" only this time they're older, have weird powers and face some really nasty creatures. I just come from watching it for the first time and i just wanted to say: What a weird movie!! I've seen some really weird movies, but this one... It's sort of a mixture of horror, sci-fi, comedy... At some point you don't know whether to be disgusted or to laugh! The special efects are great, and so is the music ("On blue bayou..."}. It may not be a great movie, but it's great entertainment. And it's sooooooo insane!!!! I liked it. Go see it. 7/10
