    Not my normal type of film, but overall it held my interest. I got "bumped" a few too many times. Such as, there is a sign about the number of miles to Denver and Fort Collins that makes no sense if you know where they are. I am not saying the mileage is incorrect, but they would not both be on that same stretch of road if you can possibly imagine where this fictional town must be located.

    I flat out enjoyed this movie. The fact that there were new puzzles along the way kept it fresh and moving along. Sure you can guess the plot for the most part, but it was still done in an interesting way. It loses a little steam near the end, but sets up well for a sequel.

    ★★★½

    I really enjoy the first 2/3 of this adaptation of Stephen King's short story. And then things fly off the deep end and a "monster" is introduced. The mythical "monster" never seems to pan out in 80's horror. Special effects were just a little too young to make them believable. My only other criticism every time I see this movie is that there is not nearly enough Huskers memorabilia anywhere to be found. I know Nebraska small towns and you could not go into a diner and not see 10-20 pieces of Nebraska gear on the walls. At least if you want to make any money.

    Great cast with a pretty solid script. I really should have liked this movie. But I just didn't enjoy it. The movie was slow and felt like they could have removed 15 minutes (take the whole cop out of the movie, what was the point of him). This movie felt like it was a hair short of being great, and yet it just wasn't great, maybe passable.
