Trivia

The description of Dolan as having a thousand names, being able to look at you a certain way so that your prostate goes bad, and killing the grass where he spits, is actually taken nearly word-for-word from the description of Randall Flagg, The Walkin' Dude from Stephen King's novel 'The Stand'.

Goofs

The highway where "Dolan" is "buried", according to the film (shown on a sign and on the work order) is US Highway 71. US 71 is nowhere near Las Vegas or Los Angeles. It runs from Southern La. to Northern Mn. See more »

Good for what it lacks, as much as what it has
17 July 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The harmless school teacher Robinson (Bentley) seeks revenge on a cold and greedy crook (Slater) who had his wife killed. The plot is familiar, the details of the revenge rather ingenious.

This is actually a rather solid and effective chiller, based on Stephen King's memorable short story. Instead of adding countless new themes in an effort to show the audience that they are not "merely" making a horror flick, the filmmakers have added scenes that actually foreshadow and strengthen the ending.

This hardly classifies it as a classic, but I found surprisingly little to gripe about and actually one or two additions that I found impressive. Christian Slater seems to be enjoying his part without turning it into camp and Besley manages to convey some real human emotions without seeming to reach for the Oscars. In this sort of (short) movie, restraint is just as important as ideas, seeing as how countless thrillers just go overboard on a desperate quest for "impact".

The cinematography and sound engineering stand up to scrutiny and the minor parts are well executed. In short, this one works.
