I know this was presented as a TV miniseries, and I only watched it because it's based on a (yet unread by me) Stephen King novel. But boy ... was I in for a surprise. The casting, acting, and directing are ruthless to the viewer beyond imagination, and the story climax is so incredibly lame, it made me highly doubt this was how King intended it be. There's a very good reason why some actors can't make the jump from TV to movies, and this piece of moving pictures acts as a template.
