This 1995 movie based on a book by Stephen King was nothing that I expected. I didn’t expect to enjoy it at all but I did. The story was very interesting and does not sit easily in the horror or psychological thriller or science fiction or Mystery genres. Perhaps it is all four.
At 179 minutes, it isn’t short, but it seems to flow very well. This is helped along by an excellent cast including Dean Stockwell as the resourceful Mystery Writer Bob Jenkins, Patricia Wettig (Laurel Stevenson), David Morse (Captain Brian Engle), Mark Lindsay Chapman (Nick Hopewell), Kate Maberly (wonderful as the young blind woman Dinah Catherine Bellman), and Bronson Pinchot as the psychopath Craig Toomey.
