To be honest, it seemed to be a rather obscure adaptation of a Stephen King book (it was apparently a flop when it was released) but since it was directed by George A. Romero, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be a typical example of why I always had a hard time to care about Stephen King's work. I mean, the concept had some potential, Romero had managed to create a rather ... read more

When Thad Beaumont was a child, he had an operation to remove a tumour from his brain. during the operation, it was discovered that far from being a tumor, the growth was a twin brother of Thad's that never developed. Years later, Thad is a successful author, writing his serious books under his own name, and his pulp money-makers under the pseudonym "George Stark". When blackmailed by someone who has discovered his secret, Thad publicly "buries" George Stark. From that point on, Thad increasingly becomes the prime suspect in a series of gruesome murders.

My movie year 2018 (579 movies items)

"10.10. (Kovo) Umpityperässä, tunnelmattomassa ja kaksituntisessa King-mukaelmassa aivoista kurkistaa silmä ja varpuset syövät miehen elävältä. Naurahdin ikkunanpesijälle, joka heilutti iloisena hyvää päivää toivottavaa kylttiä. Myös Georgen pupillit ovat lopummalla nätit. Puoli lisäpistettä loppuratkaisusta, joka on kauhuelokuvan ehkä parhaita ikinä: harmi vain, että se löytyy yhdestä kirjailijan tympeimmistä adaptaatioista."

“To be honest, it seemed to be a rather obscure adaptation of a Stephen King book (it was apparently a flop when it was released) but since it was directed by George A. Romero, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be a typical example of why I always had a hard time to care about Stephen King's work. I mean, the concept had some potential, Romero had managed to create a rather creepy mood (I especially loved the scene during which the main character was dreaming) and Timothy Hutton was a good choice to play this double-character. Unfortunately, as usual with King's stories, it became rather presposterous at some point and, above all, there was a total lack of psychology. Indeed, at some point, a reporter pointed out that the main character was displaying some sympoms of” read more

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" I'm not sure why this film isn't a better remembered part of Romero's filmography, or Stephen King's for that matter. It's a great little flick that can be quite unique at times and has a creepy atmosphere about it. It's sort of a modern day Jekyl & Hyde story, but it has it's own personality. Of most importance is the fantastic performance of Timothy Hutton, in what may be his only truly great performance, as Thad Bheumont and his evil doppelganger George Stark. Thanks to the makeup and the "
