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.

"30.5. Blu-ray George A. Romeron Stephen King -filmatisointi on suotta vaiettu osa ohjaajansa filmografiaa. Loppujahtiin saakka hyvin kiinnostavaa kahden persoonan ja näin myös identiteettipulmien pyörittelyä. Tarinan kulkiessa verkkaisen nautittavasti. Loppu onkin vähän ongelmallisen pitkitetty ja ehkä jopa antikliimaattinen. Loppulässähdyksen oireita oli muistaakseni myös sattumalta Monkey Shines'ssa, Romeron ensimmäisessä studioelokuvassa. Lisäksi paljastuva yksioikoisuus toisen "

"May 29th Disappointing. Terrible in every way. Nothing positive to say about this one. A poor adaptation of a Stephen King novel. Hammy acting and corny dialogue can't be carried without atmosphere and an amazing score. "

“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
