Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The resulting domestic tension is rife with darkly comedic and dramatic possibilities that were better exploited on the printed page, where King was able to more fully delineate his heroine's tortured thought process.
Rotten: Much thinner than you would expect.
Rotten: It's arguably the dullest King film yet, despite solid work by LaPaglia to save it and a decent set-up that goes absolutely nowhere.
Rotten: In his approach to bringing his own story to the screen, the author gave no consideration for actual performance or humor, valuing his language over all else.
This movie was brilliantly acted and a great adaption of a good short story by King. It is an emotional thriller, not a heart pounding Shining type. But I enjoyed it for what it was! His book had me head scratching for weeks after with a What-would-I-do? scenario, and the movie renewed that years later. I loved the character arcs and as usual, King blurs the lines between good and bad guys. Nicely done!
Has Stephen King lost his touch? This was boring beyond belief. And a bad cast to boot.
Classic Stephen King
This thriller delves more deeply into the actual psychology of the main character's marriage rather than the murders themselves. It is a very cerebral piece and well acted. If you are looking for something more fast paced and mainstream like “What Lies Beneath” you will be disappointed- the movie fails in that objective. However as a Stephen King thriller that is a deep analysis of marital relationships and secrets it is very successful.
Think Wendy and Jack Torrence from The Shining as an older couple.
