That kid looks like the kid who annoyed everyone at this place I used to go to.

Not nearly as good as the book, but that's normal. Stephen King adaptations always have a great story but horrible directing and acting, and this one is no exception. Still, it's King. I give it a 6/10

It was okay, a tad clumsy but enjoyable enough.

I agree with Kiki, but I would change it from a 6/10 to a 7/10... one point for David Keith.

I love Drew, she was such an adorable kid And I'm a big Stephen King fan too, so this was a must-see for me. Very cheesy, very 80s! And Martin Sheen is of course wonderful.

Haha when I read the title of this post I thought you were talking about the prodigy song.

I watched this movie last night for the first time in years!! Pretty good special effects for 1983, and creepy (Tangerine Dream) soundtrack!!

I saw this and the sequel last night. I thought they were both really good. Can't even decide which I liked better.
