User Reviews

 
Rather decent adaptation but flawed
25 March 2014 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Traveling to a lake-front mansion to get over his wife's death, a distraught writer finds that her ghost is using him to help a local woman battle an evil land-owner who's evil secret goes back to the town's infamous haunting involving numerous disappearances to cover up the original tragedy.

Taking the new miniseries as a whole, this one definitely feels just like every other Stephen King story: an isolated Maine town, elders having a deadly secret who the locals are afraid of, lots of melodrama instead of horror with only brief forays into the style to trick us into thinking that's what it really is, and far too many scenes outside the style that just eats up so much time that this could very easily be paired down by well over an hour without taking away anything of any importance in the storyline. The scares are pedestrian and seem to consist of the same thing, a wrinkly ghost-like woman appearing out of nowhere, which gets old very quickly and really hampers this one overall. It's still typical King so it's just mediocre and not unwatchable.

Rated Unrated/PG-13: Violence, Language and children-in-jeopardy.
