Way to waste Stephen King
29 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember loving the Stephen King short story SORRY, RIGHT NUMBER; it worked really well as a short piece of prose. This TV adaptation, made for the TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE TV series, is something else entirely: a sloppily written character drama lacking the requisite suspense and tension that something like this demands.

Stephen King is an excellent writer but it's fair to say that many of the adaptations of his work are less than stellar and that's the case here. The story seems unfocused and even a decent twist can't improve the viewer's general lack of enjoyment. It's just another forgettable story in an increasingly dull show.
