Ended up watching this because I wanted to see Jason Segel's recent work and followed the story (obviously based on true events) with empathy. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jason Segel and - very moving - Lakeith Stanfield breathed life into their characters and delivered a credible conflict of conscience and belief. I wish 'Reggie' had more scenes, since he is such an important part of 'Carlton's' revelations... Long-term atheists or agnostics may have problems accepting the impact religious dogma can have on lives, how there is real suffering involved where stories are believed to hold an absolute and undeniable truth, and also, how narrow and confined the world can become when following the teachings of holy books verbatim. As a former catholic, I enjoyed this film (in a slightly masochistic way), just like I enjoyed 'Doubt' or any other film dealing with hypocrisy, prejudice and belief systems that strangle the mind rather than set it free.
Poor adaptation of one of King's most brilliant books, flat, one-dimensional characters, rushed cuts, outdated, foreseeable 'horror' and - like its predecessor - lacking the depth of King's book, which actually is a story about our fear or non-acceptance of death and the incapability to cope.
