True. It is interesting that examples of movies being better than the written story come out of Different Seasons. IMO Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me & Apt Pupil (movie) were much better than Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption, The Body & Apt Pupil (short story).Stephen King books are almost universally better than the movies made of them.
And the scene when Wendy finds the pages he typed...holy crow. So creepy!The 1980 movie is a classic horror film. Great performance by Jack Nicholson, whose character slowly descended into madness.
I wasn't looking for an action film.
I liked the line: "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"
