After the court hearing the 109 year old gypsy grandfather of the victim touches Billy's face and says one word, "Thinner." Billy begins to quickly lose weight and no matter what he does he is facing death. Everyone involved in the case and the release of Billy including the judge and the sheriff are dying of strange diseases. The common cause seems to be the old gypsy grandfather who touched all those men and said one word to each one.
Billy begs forgiveness from the grandfather who tells him that if he doesn't leave the gypsy camp that his curse will get worse. Billy curses the gypsies as the White Man From Town because that is what the gypsies call him. Vengeance turns out to be a pie served cold!
This was a good movie if you are a Stephen King fan. I own the DVD and the book and I actually like the book better as it goes into much more detail as books often can do. Both are worth watching and reading and are a good story line and entertaining. If you love Stephen King it is hard to criticize him but this is a good story but not one of his best. It is still 4 stars as some of King's average books are far better than other author's best efforts.
This movie contains some foul language and some scenes are gross and spooky. If that is not your type of movie then be warned. I enjoyed this movie and I recommend it to you!
This is actually a somewhat faithful adaptation of the Bachman (King) novel, and the make-up F/X are top notch. But with that said, this isn't a very good movie. I think I lay most of it at Robert John Burke's feet for his portrayal of Billy Halleck. Burke seems to be auditioning for "Batman" here as everything he says comes out as a harsh whisper. I'm not sure if he's trying to come across like a Jack Nicholson/Jack Palance type of delivery, but it gets really grating. The supporting players are all pretty solid; Joe Mantegna, Kari Wührer & Michael Constantine, all turn in entertaining performances, but Burke drags it all down around him.
If you are a big fan of King and the film adaptations of his novels, then give this one a view. If you are looking for something scary, pick up something else.
