Extremely accurate and faithful to the novel
29 September 2017 | by Elder_BlossomsoftSee all my reviews

Masterpiece. The last ten minutes were brilliantly executed. This director's work is definitely on par with Frank Darabont's movies. Every sequences of the novel is present in the movie. Acting is delivered at its finest. Netflix need more Stephen King adaptations like this one. A must watch for everyone.
