Our Opinion
Not bad, typical Stephen King fashion. The beginning was great and held out attention especially with ROn Pearlman who did a great job as the evil possessed Sheriff. However, the film gets long and boring towards the end. The movie runs out of gas at the end with very weird cheap effects. Perhaps they should have cut it short to save grace.
