DescriptionAn excellent stand-alone movie that can be enjoyed by both King fans and non-King fans alike. An excellent cast, and director (Mary Lambert) combine to produce a movie that has a lot of emotion, as well as a lot of horror towards the end. If you think you've seen it all, and nothing can scare you, try watching this one alone at night in a dark house. The opening credits alone will give you the creeps!
Probably one of the only poor parts of the movie is the special effects when Gage goes on his killing spree, but this does not seriously detract from the movie, which grossed $26 Million (Some figures say it grossed as high as $57 Million). Although young, Miko Hughes plays the part as Gage excellently, making himself appear both lovingly cute, and creepy at the same time.
Starring twins Beau and Blaze Berdahl as Ellie Creed, Denise Crosby as Rachel Creed, Miko Hughes in a good performance as Gage Creed, Dale Midkiff as Louis Creed, backed up by Fred Gwynne playing the creepy Jud Crandall.
Some interesting facts, the number on the truck that gives Rachel a lift back home are 666. Also at Rachel's parents' house is a picture of a little boy in a blue outfit. At the end, Gage wears the same outfit.
