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.)

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.

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

While I was watching Desperation, I felt like there is narrator hidden inside characters, like there is just one character, and like the story is being written while the movie is playing, same thing in The Langoliers.

Ok they made a movie out of desperation but did they ever do one out of the regulators? If they did, i'd like to watch that.

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!!

Guess what happens when you mix killers, monsters, ghosts, physichics and religious propaganda... Desperation. 4/10

Loved it. It is a B movie indeed. But very good as it forces you to dive in one of Stephen King's nightmare.
