The Boogeyman (1982) & The Woman in the Room (1983)
8 November 2018 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

The Boogeyman (1982)

I do not like it, but I respect the efforts

The story is decent and quite faithful to King's original, and performance of Michael Earl Reid, playing a man who is trying to explain to his psychiatrist that the Boogeyman exists and that it killed his children, is impressive. But overall, the movie is pale and boring and more or less it's a waste of time. But considering the fact that this is pretty much "one man show", where Jeff Schiro did the screenplay, directing, editing and music, and on top of that this is his movie debut, I cannot bury it completely. I do not like it, but I respect the efforts.

4/10

The Woman in the Room (1983)

Frank Darabont debut

The directing debut of Frank Darabont, a man who signs cult adaptations of Steven King, "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile", is also an adaptation of King's story. "The Woman in the Room" (1983) is a thirty-minute psychological drama about a lawyer whose mother is dying in pain and his emotional and moral dilemma of whether to release her from her agony. The film was done almost without a budget, with only three actors in two rooms, and it's based almost entirely on facial expressions and the building of the atmosphere. It is interesting that the actress who plays mother also appears in "The Green Mile", and the supporting actor also has roles in both, "The Green Mile" and "The Shawshank Redemption". King stated that this is the best short film made on one of his stories.

7,5/10
