Goes beyond simply being a bad movie, to the point where it becomes one that insults your intelligence.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

A very sub-par series of clunky ideas about mortality, none of which amount to a decent horror film.

As obras de Stephen King já renderam alguns ótimos filmes, mas também muitos péssimos. Infelizmente, Riding the Bullet se encaixa nesta última categoria.

A better name for the film would be Taking the Bullet, because that's what sitting through this dopey, pretentious mess feels like.

Imagine a feature-length version of the "Large Marge" sequence from Pee-wee's Big Adventure and you won't be too far off, only that was scarier.

The movie is so glum and flat-footed there's no reason to care.

A barely coherent fever dream of automotive anxiety.

Falls short of its source.

It's a navel-gazing meditation on death smothered under excess and ham-handed direction, better suited for late-night cable.

Overall it doesn't amount to much more than a goofy campfire tale.

An incoherent melange of horror movie gimmicks that's genuinely laughable when it strives for profundity. It induces more tedium than terror.

October 19, 2004
Both the anticipation factor and writer-director Mick Garris' slick adaptation fail to live up to the old hype.
October 21, 2004
A ponderous, incoherent horror mishmash that turns King's short story into utter nonsense.
October 15, 2004
There are lots of cheap scares and mind games that detract from the main attraction: the interesting family drama.

A fairly middle of the road fright film that treads dangerously close to being silly.

...a nifty supernatural drama that features some truly terrifying scenarios, while also offering up a bit of well-placed humor and poignancy.
August 10, 2004
Flaws and all, it works pretty well.

The ending of which, both on the page and, now, on the screen, lands with an overly elegiac thud. Still, the journey is often fine.
