A really good rendering of one of Stephen Kings darker tales this movie is a must see for all King fans,8/10.

One of the few King movie adaptations that is faithful to the original story. Read Cujo, then Desperation, then The Regulators. The same demon (Tak) is in all of those. Then try reading The Dark Tower series, cause that's where Tak comes from.

Sorry I wasted my time on this, honestly. Not suspenseful, not well written, poorly acted (even with some great actors in the cast), not even decent exposition. Bad all around.

I thought it was pretty good.7/10

Not very good. Possibly watch it once if you're incredibly bored. 2/5

And to "dog1clear"s comment about the Book not having Christian under/overtones, you obviously didnt read the book. The book had a even MORE Christian tone to it. In reality the entire book revolved around it. The book either focused on unformed evil (Tak) or God.

oh dude, i read this book! it's an intense book. like most stephen king movies, it doesn't live up to the book. except for maybe Green Mile

This was a fun dark fantasy story. 7/10

Movie was 30 mins or more too long. I found myself wishing Tak would hurry up and kill them all so it would end!

The first half was ok. But I had to FF to the end.

I thought it was an ok movie. I mean I wont be putting it in my favorites or anything, but it was good for a one time watch.

As I've said before, some of King's books adapt well to the screen, other's not so much. This wasn't one of the better efforts, but it wasn't the worst, either. I've always thought that this would've been better if elements from it's mirror book 'The Regulators' would've been incorporated and then done as a mini-series. King's books aren't known for being short and sweet and trying to make them fit into the time allotted format of a film, is just a bit on the hard side. Still, I did enjoy this movie. Production values were good, Ron Perlman was just wonderful and the screenplay itself, was okay. 3/5 stars. (Added to my 'From Page To Screen' playlist.)

I'm sorry to say it but I loved the book. So much better than the movie. This was made for TV so guess what...It's second class in everything...Too bad cause I like Perlman. Read the (very good) book. Don't waste your time with the movie. Bad acting and bad directing...If you like just a little bit the stories of S.King SKIP THIS MOVIE. 2/5

Good movie! Exceptional I thought for a made-for-tv! 'It' was another excellent movie that translated well to screen. However, Desperation better captured just how 'chilling' the novel really was. 'It' was very good up until the end but having read the book, I just felt that it didn't capture the climactic ending as the novel did. Guy who plays the sherrif in Desperation was REALLY GOOD! Don't think they could have chosen a better actor to play that sicko.....TACK!!

0/5 I'm a big fan of the book (read it again just a couple months ago), but God that was bad. Couldn't even sit through half an hour of it. BARELY follows the book, horrible casting (yes, even Pearlman), horrible acting, crappy camera angles, King should get a razzie for the teleplay, and all the good parts got edited down to a Hallmark original movie level... It's about what you could expect if Reader's Digest got a hold of the story. I could go on. If you liked the book, stay far away from this tripe, it's not worth it.

This was a decent Stephen King movie, pretty close to the book. Not the best of King's but had some cool demons and god stuff happening in there. 3.5/5

woot ron pearlman is so awesome

Posted by SamcroSon 4 years, 4 months ago

This was another decent Mick Garris directed Stephen King movie, though certainly not the best by a mile. Ron Perlman is ridiculous as the villain and Steven Webber and Tom Skerrit do well enough as the good guys. 5/10
