This is absolutely my favorite Stephen King movie adaption, maybe that is because it was written for T.V by the man himself. This mini-series is awesome and absolutely scary. The ending will just leave you breathless and how horrifying to think of what to do as a parent. I love King's books, because they are not necessarily about the "monster", they are human studies and the scary part is the victims' reactions to the monster as this movie shows. What a superb ensemble cast. This movie rocked and really makes you think about faith, family, and your neighbors and friends. It is four hours long but it keeps you enthralled every minute. I started watching this one night at 2 in the morning after a late night shift delivering pizzas while in law school, and I managed to stay up all four hours to watch the whole movie, that's how good and enthralling this movie is.
