Stephen King wrote the novel while recovering from a near-fatal accident. Because of his injuries, he wrote the novel in longhand. The accident is reflected in the story, particularly a graphic scene in which a vehicle runs down a major character. See more »

You don't suppose he got exposed to radiation, do you? I saw that once in a movie. Guy ended up bald as Telly what's-his-fuck.

Plot heavy--TOO heavy--horror sci-fi film about 4 friends (Thomas Jane, Jason Lee, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis) in the Maine woods squaring off against disgusting killer aliens and the Army led by Morgan Freeman and Tom Sizemore.
The film is well-directed by Lawrence Kasdan and well-acted (especially by Jane, Lewis and Olyphant) but there's too many plots going on and the movie rambles on for 135 minutes. I did sit through the whole thing, but I was never really involved or interested.
On the plus side, the special effects are great; the aliens are slimy and disgusting; the attack scenes are brutal (and bloody) and I LOVED the way Kasdan visualized Lewis' mind.
Still, the film has too many plots to handle and it's constantly loosing its focus. Not terrible or unwatchable, just disappointing.
I give it a 6.
