For anyone who read the book before seeing the movie.
Besides a mediocre performance from Tom Skeritt this adaptation of Steven Kings 600+ page novel is up to par with some of his best big screen productions. Each scene is expertly crafted right out of the pages of Desperation (probably due to the fact that King wrote the screenplay). The police precinct including the desk and each cell seemed as if it were pulled straight from the novel itself. The characters appearances and each detail down to the smiley face on the bag of marijuana that lands Peter and Mary in the slammer were constructed with sheer perfection. If you read the book you’ll notice that they changed little things to get with the times, like the hitchhikers shirt instead of being Pete Tesh is Bob Dylan, and there’s a small reference towards the end to Donald Rumsfeld and Adam Sandler.

When I saw that there was going to be a TV movie version of this book I was worried because of the graphic sequences needed to do Desperation justice. I was not disappointed. The animal sequences were the most impressive, with vultures and dogs standing as an animal army together. The scene where the dogs line the road for miles was one of the eeriest animal sequences King has ever incorporated in a film (Others including: Cujo, The Night Flyer, etc.).

In my opinion no one was more suited for the role of Collie Entragian than Ron Perlman, he gave the best performance in the entire production in my opinion (not to insult Steven Webber). Though Tom Skeritt wasn’t as good as he could have been, he was still the perfect person for his role. Skeritt just didn’t come off as an asshole as well as he should have. Everyone else was good, down to the Chinese actors who had absolutely no lines.

In summary if you read the book you will like this movie the only thing that wasn’t in the movie was the tree-house that David went to in his mind (not necessarily a bad thing). The director did great job of filling in the viewer on loose ends throughout the film, and it is a strict adaptation of the novel. I’ve heard critics comment on his use of left wing ideology in this screenplay but I have no idea what they’re talking about, maybe I’m just not politically coherent enough to understand, but I feel that the movie deserves the recognition as a horror movie over that of political satire.

Thank you so much for reading my opinion I appreciate you taking the time of day to observe what I have to say.

Very good until the ending
I watched this after I read the novel, which I thought was awesome.

The actors I thought were pretty good, especially Ron Pearlman who played the psychopathic cop, Collie Entragian. The special effects and the cinematography were pretty good as well.

They kept the film very close to the awesome novel. Until it got to the middle because they cut out some of the most important scenes from the book that they didn’t put in the film, for example, in the book they meet another character, hiding in the ruins of the town. They also find much more of the history of the town. They cut out all this in the film, which was disappointing.

The ending, I thought I was very disappointed because they fitted bits that were very cheesy, that didn’t fit the novel at all.

I would rather read the novel first before watching the film. But still I thought it was pretty good.
