true to the short story
23 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Autopsy Room Four is one of Stephen King's short stories that I imagine the producers licensed for $1 (one of Stephen King's "Dollar Babies"). I saw this short film at a film festival, and I thought it was really well-made.

I picked up the short story afterward and I came to realize that the film is true to the original story. The lead character, played by Stephen Furst, is not who I pictured as the narrator in the story but he did an excellent job. It looked so uncomfortable for him to lay on an autopsy slab, mostly naked! Kudos to him, the rest of the cast, and the entire production. A fantastic short film.
