Director: Fritz Kiersch. Cast: Peter Horton, Linda Hamilton, R.G. Armstrong. 92 min. Rated R. Horror.
There have been quite a few horrendous Stephen King adaptations, but this one sets the bar so low, I'm wondering whether the original story was terrible in the first place. Even if it was, this is just a sad piece of film crap. The acting, the plot, and the visual effects are all an insult to humanity. The photography, since almost the entire horror story happens in broad daylight, could've been its only saving grace, but no ... I don't even want to provoke the slightest inclination to watch this. Don't be fooled (like me) by the film's numerous sequels.
