A decent documentary for fans of the film
10 March 2019 | by laceyistheheppestSee all my reviews

It's not an amazing documentary, but it's okay. There's some things that I didn't know (and failed to ever look it up, if I'm honest) like that a boy played Zelda. Since I've been interested in filmmaking for quite some time, I found that aspect of it really interesting as well.. even though it seems that a lot of reviews here disagree. I just recently got into going to a local horror convention, so I've missed seeing various cast at those types of things, so it was neat seeing them today talking about the film. Especially the girls who played Ellie (also didn't realize twins played her). It also made me really how much I miss Fred. He was a good actor and such a presence in the film. Probably one of my most favorite characters in it, honestly. I loved hearing what the cast had to say about him and how close they got with him.

Someone complained about how Stephen King wasn't involved in this and well..he only was on set for the first day, rehearsals, and for his one small scene..what would he have to offer in regards to the movie? Although I would've WAY preferred to hear from the man himself where he got the inspiration for the book, not his friend. But it was still interesting information anyways since it's one of my top favorite books of his.

Decent movie overall but a little lackluster. Made me want to revisit the movie again, though and all the gross and creepy scenes in it.
