  1. The only comment I can make is that I have seen The Dark Half (1993) recently and I beleive it is one of the best adaptations of Stephen King’s work. But that’s only Evil Santa speaking…

    I have reviewed some movies for fun on my site (I’m not a native English speaker) and I also liked The Night Flyer.

  2. santadelic,

    I liked Misery as an adaptation the best, but you’re right The Dark Half was also good! Also, don’t EVEN watch Kubrick’s The Shining. Lousy, lousy adaptation. The TV version with Stephen Weber was WAYYYYYY more cool.
