The Worst Stephen King Adaptation
12 August 2020 | by john-1355See all my reviews

When it's all said and done, I think this may be the worst adaptation of a Stephen King story. Nothing in it works - the acting is terrible, the camerawork is intrusive, the music is awful and the teleplay is boring and full of cliches. There was nothing interesting about it, it was a chore to sit through the 45 minutes.

At least with MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE or THE MANGLER or, even, THE LAWNMOWER MAN, you can watch and be engaged simply by the outrageous choices the filmmakers made. Not so with "Crouch End."
