I was debating watching this new mini, but I'm glad I did. I like the
book, with some reservations. I hate the way Stephen King kills off
small children. That just doesn't set well with me. Having said that,
it is still a good story and is well written. The t.v. adaptation was
very true to the book and I thought well put together. Mr. King is
certainly improving his screen play writing abilities. The dialog
flowed well and was easy to follow, as opposed to "The Stand" (which I
dearly love despite its many flaws) where sometimes the dialog left you
wondering if the characters were even in the same scene.
I found the scenes with the spiders and snakes to be especially scary and well done. I thought the acting was good and Ron Perlman's performance was excellent. As usual, there was enough humor at the right times to break the tension where needed. Overall, a good result.
