I couldnt help but be impressed when I read the all star cast involved in this movie. Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) as director, a Stephen King (The Shining) adaptation, and good 'ol freddy krueger (Robert Englund) as one of the main characters.
With these three involved I couldnt help but pick it up and give it a viewing, and get a little excited about watching it.
Unfortunately, like a lot of King movies, it falls quite short of being anything special, in fact the end result is rather mediocre considering the players involved.
Tobe Hoopers creeping claustrophobia is felt throughout the movie,
but wasnt enough to keep the movies head above water.
The acting performances were pretty ordinary, but thats almost the norm with horror movies.
Of course, Im not going to recommend you buy it, but if you are a fan of Hooper or King, or even England, watch it for there sakes, but dont say I didnt warn you.
For you Hooper fans out there, (...)
