Sylvester Stallone was originally slated to play the role of Jimmy Dolan. He was later replaced with Christian Slater. Kevin Bacon was originally going to be Robinson and Stacy Title was going to direct. Bacon was also offered the lead in another movie based on a Stephen King novel with Christine, a story also centered around a car. See more »
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 »

An excellent rendition of a good Stephen King story on revenge and determination.
The movie is certainly worth a watch.It is the tale of a revenge seeking spouse's determined efforts to kill an almost untouchable criminal.It is based on a short story by Stephen King.There are a few changes,but it is true to the original story and the few changes in the story are effective.
The movie could be worth a rating of 9 or 9.5 if not for the first 15 to 20 minutes of the the movie.Emmanuelle Vaugier's dialogs are really bad and her acting is not great either.Wes Bentley as the protagonist was disappointing for the first 20 minutes but he is excellent thereafter as a determined,disoriented revenge-seeking monster. Christian Slater makes a lasting impact every time he is on the screen.
The music,editing,dialogs(barring the first few minutes),cinematography and performances are pretty good. Though the first 20 minutes of the movie are not noteworthy the last 20 minutes are in complete contrast and stand out.
