Romero's adapation of King's novella is not a great horror flick but a decent genre item.

Legendary horror director George A. Romero takes this material seriously and lends a real intimacy -- and real dread -- to it.

The film is sleek and enjoyable, with a highly amusing Timothy Hutton in the dual role of nice-guy Thad and vicious George.

Romero's direction is atypically listless, and the supernatural aspects are never explained in a satisfactory manner.
