Storyline

Featuring shades of Edgar Allen Poe's ["A Tell-tale Heart" and] "The Black Cat", 1922, with a Bonny and Clyde sub-plot, based on the Stephen King novella of the same name, centers on simple but proud farmer, Wilfred James, who, with his young son, murders his wife to gain ownership of her inherited land. Shortly after, however, strange and supernatural occurrences begin to plague both James and his farm. Is it just simple bad luck, or is it the work of something much more sinister? Written by Jake Logsdon

Trivia

There are several tropes and connections to other Stephen King stories. Hordes of rats are connected to another short story named The Graveyard Shift. The well connects to the novel Dolores Claiborne. Nebraska and the cornfields are both associated with The Stand and Children of the Corn. A man being cursed for his immoral actions is similar to The Green Mile. See more »

Goofs

Many vehicles - notably the sheriff's car and the tractor used for the harvest just after the sheriff's first visit - are conspicuously free of dust, an impossibility in farm country. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wilfred James: [writing] To whom it may concern. My name is Wilfred Leland James, and this is my confession. The issue that led to my crime and damnation was 100 acres of good land in Hemingford Home, Nebraska, willed to my wife, Arlette Christina Winters James, following the death of her father. It was much my intention to add her 100 to our 80-acre freehold farm, as it was to someday pass it all on to my boy, Henry Freeman James, and to his thereafter.

Eh...
29 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

After all the ads my computer threw at me lately, I thought I'd give it a go. To be honest, my attention span now days does not allow movie viewing often. But, I love Steven King's writing, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Waste of time even though the actors were fine. It was disturbing to watch Thomas Jane talk with a clenched jaw out of one side of his jaw. Not compelling enough for a full length movie.
