Goofs

In the scene just before Burton hits the boy we see Vicki sitting bare feet in the car. In the next scene Vicki opens the door to run to the injured boy having her shoes on. To put on the shoes would be impossible that fast especially because Vicki's shoes have to be tied up. See more »

Good film, stays true to the short story.
27 January 2011 | by DaksGirlSee all my reviews

OK, let's be honest. This is not a film that is going to win lots of awards. It's relatively low budget, acting could be better, flimsy story line etc etc. But what do you expect? ALL Stephen King adaptations tend to fall short of their expectations. I'm not ashamed to say I like this film. My whole gripe with the original COTC was it didn't stick to the original short story at all, it had a happy ending and the acting sucked. This film at least overcomes the first two! I did actually think the actor who played Burt did him very well; and the kids were genuinely creepy. Everything felt real to me, like this could actually happen which is one thing I look for in good horror films. Is it better than the original film? A million times yes. If you want an answer to "should I watch this?" the answer is also yes. It's entertaining, very close to the short story, good atmosphere and is overall a nice creepy film. It's by no means amazing, but I'm judging it compared to the original, and it does feel like a completely different film. So give it a chance. You'll definitely look at gingers differently after watching it! :P
