Trivia

This is Stephen King's first self-adapted screenplay since "Pet Sematary," which was released 25 years earlier. The last feature film script he wrote was "Sleepwalkers," released in 1992. Since then he has written TV movies, mini-series and shows, such as "The Stand," "The Shining" and "Kingdom Hospital." See more »

Goofs

(at around 55 mins) Bob (an allegedly avid coin collector) is inspecting a penny with a magnifying glass. He is pinching the front and back of the coin in his fingers. Any amateur coin collector would never touch the face of a coin as it will tarnish and devalue it. It would be held by pinching around the rim only. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Bob Anderson: [as narrator] I fled him down the nights and down the days. I fled him down the arches of the years. I fled him down the labyrinthine ways of my own mind. And in the mist of tears, I hid from him, and under running laughter.

Stephen King once again proves that reality is the most terrifying thing of all.
16 November 2014 | by Tony HeckSee all my reviews

"She knew nothing." Darcy (Allen) and Bob (LaPaglia) have been married for 25 years and are extremely happy. When Bob is gone on business Darcy begins looking around for her stashes of chocolate. What she finds is the missing ID for a woman that was recently killed by a serial killer. Coming to grips with the fact that her perfect husband is an evil being she isn't sure how to react. The reason that Stephen King is known as the master of horror is because the things he writes about are realistic enough for you to think… this could happen to me. This movie is no exception. An ordinary loving couple that seem perfect at first but then a dangerous secret is discovered and everything changes. There is not a crazed killer in a mask attacking people at random, nor are there people being dismembered just for effect. This one is terrifying because the killer could be someone you know and if that's the case how would you deal with it. Especially knowing that if you are married to a serial killer will the police really believe you had no idea what was going on? Like any good King story this one keeps on on edge and you aren't sure if what you are seeing is real or imagined. The only real downside to this is that it had the feel of a made for TV movie. Other than that I have to say this is worth seeing. Overall, Stephen King once again proves that reality is the most terrifying thing of all. I give this a B+.
