Surprisingly best ever
29 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

First, I like long movies, second, I've never expected much from King's movies. This is best movie I've seen and it's strange, because this movie isn't like you would expect to be your favorite movie. Reserve one night to this film and watch it without interruptions, enjoy and let movie carry you along. Not like Indiana Jones, not like Hitchcock, but tense with horrible ending.
