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.

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.'

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

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.

Do yourself a favor and read this FIRST ... if EVER you have missed something in the translation from book to screen it will be here. Get it ONLINE it's less than 100 pages, you can read it in an hour or less -- read it at onlinenovelsfree or just google read Apt Pupil online free. It had been years, a lifetime, I had not even turned 30, since I read this novella in Different Seasons, so I went back and re read it ... and was reminded WHY I wanted to read it first. I will put a much lengthier review in REVIEWS below after my stomach has settled... I can say this movie proves that the deepest darkest horrors occur without a single drop of blood being shown on screen, that the human mind, the human condition is our hell, is the place where the seeds of raw evil fester, grow and consume and is a place of no escape. I was so impressed with Brad Renfro's acting, I remembered him from The Client which I recently rewatched, and was deeply saddened when I saw that he died at age 25 in 2008 from an accidental heroin overdose ... such a bright flame out way too soon. Ian McKellan shows again why he is considered one of the greatest actors of our time in a role that had to be unimaginably difficult. Still though, huge credits to Bryan Singer's directing, it was tough to equal or top The Usual Suspects and to Brandon Boyce's screen play trying to convey the raw gut emotions from the novella to the screen was a daunting task and although not quite succeeding it was a helluva an effort. Again, I'll post my review when I settle a bit .. I was not physically ready for reading AND watching this in one sitting.

Only Stephen King's mind could create this, and the Direction, acting, and supporting cast all fell into perfect step ... 10/10

I saw this years ago. i had no idea Bryan Singer Directed it. i was going threw primewire looking to binge watch specific directors. so i was setting up my schedule for Sunday (movie day). i looked up some of my favorite movies, figured out who directed them and then looked up the directors to find their movies. imagine my surprise when i see this movie, which I haven't been able to watch in years because i could never find it and nearly forgot it. glad to see it again..this movie is creepy and disturbing in such an awesome way.

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.
