Great praise must be given to the always amazing Christopher Walken as well, who delivers a pitch-perfect performance that is pivotal to the film. No one else could have played Johnny Smith as he does. The rest of the cast is utterly fantastic as well. Those who's knowledge of Stephen King only extends to film adaptations of his work should be aware however that t"
