King does it again, but "Stand By Me" is still better.
on July 9, 1999
The movie is kind of slow and confusing for someone not familiar with King or previous attepts of the book. It is hard to understand what is happening and why through out the movie, because there are so many jumps and flasbacks. The part when they hold the football player in the car and surprise him with that scary mask, made my friend and I scream so loud we got the attention of our neighbors, almost as bad as the hand scene in the end of "Carrie"!!
