Disappointing adaptation of a Stephen King story
22 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE WORD PROCESSOR OF THE GODS is a pretty uninteresting early episode of TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE. Although it's based on a Stephen King story, it fails to gel with any of that kooky atmosphere that King is known for; instead the story comes across as over simplified and rather trite. The protagonist (Bruce Davison) is a writer who finds himself with the titular device, which has the power to make the written word come true.

It's no DEATH NOTE, and the episode as a whole is clunky and feels forced. Sure, the premise is a decent one - that's always the case with Stephen King efforts - but I just didn't care for the surprisingly lightly handled way things panned out. THE WORD PROCESSOR OF THE GODS is hardly the best the series has to offer although not the worst either.
