The story has plenty of good parts to tide you over (including the famous scene of Jack peering through a door and smiling his maniac smile, saying "Here's Johnny!!!"), some excellent performances by Jack and Danny Lloyd, as the boy, and great cinematography, which includes a scene in a maze covered with snow. There is, however, a lack of emotion for a lot of the characters, seeing as how Duvall's screaming sounds more like whining after awhile. Still, if you are a fan of King's, like I am, than you have got to see this film. It's not the best adaptation I've seen (which would be Carrie), but far from the worst (which would be "Pet Sematary").
