(at around 31 mins) Just after Bob has asked for half a cup of coffee, a woman passes in front of him carrying a purse in one bent arm and a sweater in the other bent arm but as she walks behind him, the purse and the sweater have disappeared and her arms swing freely at her side. See more »
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.

I was SO excited to see this adaptation after reading it in Full Dark, No Stars - boy, was I disappointed.
I even told my mother, who is and has been a massive Stephen King fan probably as long as I've been alive, not to bother, that it was a serious disappointment.
I also feel that it was dreadfully miscast. In the beginning of the book, Stephen King made sure we knew what a good man Bob is - didn't do that enough in the movie. Plus, I don't think Anthony LaPaglia makes a very good Bob.
Yeah, the movie definitely doesn't portray Bob as a nice guy, more like a smarmy used car salesman. Disappoint.
