Dumb, it doesn't even look nearly as scary
oh hey thanks
The original miniseries sucked too
It was for rubes
I loved the book. I hope they don't fuck it up. There's been cast reshuffling and directors dropping out which concerns me.
Other than Tim Curry the original was a bore, hopefully this is more like the book
They ALWAYS fuck up a Steven novel..........
It would be a totally boring shitfest if not for Tim Curry.
Kinda like you fucking up the name "Stephen."
Looks like @ChuckZ.
The original tv movie is way more than just a bore or a "shitfest". It is like rock bottom retarded. I watched it for 10 minutes a week or two ago; it's way worse than you remember it.
To be far, I have read a lot of Steven King books and for the most part the endings just blow. It is like he just runs out of gas writing. Suddenly an alien lands and is in control of the monster or something stupid. The Stand, which is one of my all time favorites, is great right up till the last twenty pages where the hand of God comes out of the sky. Really?
It sucked the first time around, i assume it will suck again.
The problem I have with King's older work is the huge build up with a shitty payoff.
Except for The Shining (which was only great because of Nicholson/ Kubrick) his books turned into movies have all been
