Very poorly done, 23 June 2004
Author: drgibson from USA

I am so disappointed in this version, and after waiting months to see it. Why do script writers assume they can improve on the author and change a characters' personality, motivations and even the plot of a great tale. I am no fan of the 1970s TV version but it's Gone With the Wind compared to this mess. There are no likable characters in this adaptation. It's a sometimes plotless version. To King purists, here are some ridiculous changes: Ben Mears is a Pulitzer Prize winner, rather than a moderately successful writer; Eva, the landlady, is an immigrant and was a confederate of Hubie Marsten; The Nortons run a cafe, no mention of Mr. Norton; Mark Patrie is a sullen teen, rather than the bright kid he is in King's book; Larry Crockett is having an affair with his daughter Ruthie; and, most ridiculous, Dr. James Cody is sleeping with Sandy McDougal!!! Also, the character of Father Callahan is pure evil, rather than the courageous but flawed, doomed man in the novel. Two minor bright spots are Donald Sutherland as Straker and Rutger Hauer as Barlow the vampire. But they don't have enough screen time to save this turkey. See the earlier David Soul version, or better yet, read the novel.
