Hey check it out, it's a good Stephen King movie!!!!! I mean, he has a HUGE catalogue, and only occasionally do to get a really good King film. Most of them are the definition of B-Movie trash without the B-Movie fun. But this one works. It adapted to film extremely well. The atmosphere fit the atmosphere of the book. The acting was good, unfortunately there was no ET, but on the whole it was a surprisingly good King movie. And now it sort of has the 80s nostalgia feel that is just dated enough to be comfortingly familiar and still stands the test of time. That is pretty rare for a King movie.
