Diet HorrorBy SLCpunk (32 reviews) from South Glamorgan , 24 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I was sure i'd like this film i love Cusack, i love Kings books and i love horror!
Trouble was that this is more of a fantasy film than a horror.
Dont get me wrong it started very well and some of the earlier scenes in the hotel room were very unsettling. Cusack was amazing as always but when the horror turned more to fantasy it was hard to take the film seriously.
It turned from a really creepy horror to a 'Tales of the Unexpected' episode. This is probably not a bad thing for some people but i paid my cash for a horror so was very disapointed.
In the end not scary not original, not Kings best, not Cusack's best and a bit too long. Wait for TV

Cracker of a filmBy piratelover (6 reviews) , 13 Apr 2013Loved this film,edge of the seat twists and turns and a brilliant performance from John Cusack def a must see!
Full of twists and turns to keep you guessingBy eeyoring (2 reviews) from Leicester , 03 Feb 2013I really enjoyed this film and the twists and turns it brings. You're never quite sure if its reaching its ending as it keeps throwing you back of the scent. We rent it every few years as by then we've forgotten bits and can enjoy the suspense all over again. There are some bad reviews of this film on here. I think its an opinion divider. I like that it is horror / thriller without giving me awful nightmares.
