Slow but atmospheric
26 November 2015 | by lordtrackerSee all my reviews

Not all great films are full of explosions or fight scenes, and this one is not meant to be. Having spent many years living in that part of Maine, I can tell you this film does more to portray the feel of both small-town life and the slow-plodding drudge of a Maine winter than any other film I've yet seen. While I do love Steven King, this is NOT a film for fans of his movies, but people who love his descriptions of the land, the life, and the feel of Maine will either love it, or at least relate to it in some way. Slow paced and atmospheric, the film portrays the inevitable interweaving of lives in a town surrounded by vast wilderness, as well as conveying the oppressiveness of that wilderness itself. A Maine winter is nothing to fool with, (and neither is an old Mainer.)
