Making a full length movie based on a (really) short story is usually not a great idea
1 August 2015 | by (Edinbruhhh) – See all my reviews

And this is no exception

I haven't actually read the short story of which it's based but I imagine it is pretty darn short considering the lack of substance in this movie

There was a Twilight Zone episode called 'Gramma' that did the same short story by Stephen King in 40 minutes

Now I haven't seen that so I can't say that that is better but I imagine this story would fit that format better than in a full length movie

And if they were gonna do a full length movie why not flesh it out a little bit?

It just get's boring really quick and remains so through the duration of the movie, which is quite a task considering it's not that much longer over an hour

The acting isn't bad but it's very "typical" to these kinds of movies and no one goes above to do much more than what's expected of there characters either

But I guess no one can blame them since they read the script and probably though 'that's it?'

Chandler Briggs who plays the boy in WALKING DEAD is looking awfully young for it being a 2014 movie so I'm guessing it was shelved for quite a bit because nobody wanted to release it, but with Chandler Briggs WALKING DEAD fame it opened an opportunity to do so I suppose

Now that is just mere speculation so I can't say that that is the case but I'd say it's more than likely

Not all negatives though, it looks fine visually and the music is fine as well, if all very typical for the genre, yeah nothing really stands out with this movie and it's the type of movie you forgot you saw 1 month after you saw it
