A powerful and disturbing movie that works as a suspenseful psychological thriller. A creepy, well-acted story of contagious evil. Ian McKellen and Brad Renfro give outstanding performances. Worth a watch... 7/10

IMO, this is one of the more successful movies based on one of Stephen King's novels, even if the movie had to abbreviate the plot due to time constraints. I read the novella years ago, and it's stayed with me in a similar way to King's 'Stand By Me.'

This movie was decent. Although it is really similar to the book, it was just missing something. I guess I was looking for the film to be just like the movie but i give this film a 7/10. I urge everyone to read the story though.

Excellent acting and direction in this poignent thriller, with an ending even better than the novella's 5/5

I never thought in a zillionish years that this story would translate to film! What a pleasant yet still way creepy surprise! Now they need to do the Long Walk and every one of those short stories will have been filmed. Hell idk maybe they did that one too. I'm soo out of the loop lol.

While Brian Singer has made some real blockbusters, this, along with The Usual Suspects are my two favourites of his. This is quite an original film, ultimately a study on the dynamics of evil feeding evil. It's adapted from one of Stephen King's non supernatural themed novellas, and when he's on game, few do studies on the aspects of evil as well as King. I find his short stories and novellas always translate better to screen than his novels and this is no exception. It works well. Combine this unpleasant but fascinating premise with a good cast, direction, scripting and editing, and you have a very interesting and watch-able film that will get you in, entertain and will give you food for thought.

Really enjoyed it. Not often you see Ian play such a baddie.

When I first went into this movie i didn't expect much, but it surprised me, in its own way it touched on how twisted and insane the nazis were and how people can be still to this day, its disturbing at times but if you think about it not so farfetched - there are still X nazi soldiers alive today, and plenty of sickos that a lot of us call neighbors... I think it's a great film . . . 8+/10

One of my personal favorites. The story of a deranged boy that blackmails a nazi war criminal into telling him stories about the holocaust. Eventually the two come to respect eachother, with the older man mentoring the boy. An exploration of evil. Ian McCellan is great. 5/5

this is a real good movie, with some twists. it is spokey to think that 1 person could get another person to do something they may have never even thought of using simple threaths. but we all know that it happens lot of times. also how a person can learn something just by lissoning or by seeing how it can work for them, and then they use this on someone ealse. i really think this would be a good for all to watch becuse it does show how this works. pluse it's just a good movie.

Great film with I.Mckellen equally matched by the young bright star Brad Renfro. R.I.P Brad.

I have read the book or short story this is based on and I have to say this is more of a censored version of the book, they kind of skip over many important scenes in the book and leave the movie with little plot. Not the best Stephen King movie.
