Very Poor Interpretation of This Story
6 February 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just finished watching this one online. If you got 19 minutes of your life you want to throw away then go ahead and check it out for yourself. Aside from the lovely scenery, this movie fails on all fronts and the acting takes the tone that was set so beautifully in the story and throws it out the window. Horrible choice of actor for the part of the man in the black suit....you're better off sticking to what you had pictured in your head while reading. I hope Stephen King never gets a chance to see this. They butchered what was great story.

Could've been so much better.

1/10 Stars
