This movie absolutely terrified me as a child. It has pretty much everything that would do that to a young person. Talking corpses, undead creatures, chucky -like toddler murdering people.

Stephen King adaptations all have the same handicap; Stephen King is actually a bit crap. This workmanlike chiller has a decent premise, but it all feels a bit cheap and amateurish. The Ramones are good though...

This was alot scarier when I was a little kid.

This movie was actually the first horror movie I saw as a kid, and scared the living daylight out of me. It resparked my fear of the dark that troubled me for quite some time afterwards. However the thing is that I am not a little kid anymore, and I have seen quite a few horror movies, allthough the are a couple of good creepy moments in this movie, the books scare me a heck of alot more than the special effects. The story is really good and the actors are great too, it's just that the special effects that was state of the arts when this was made are really bad today. If you haven't seen it though, I recommend that you do as I do with everything that Stephen King has touched, after all he has not earned the title the master of horror for nothing.
