Added to Stephen King ranked.
I'll watch just about anything with Brad Dourif in it, but a bad film is a bad film. The acting especially brings it down and I struggled to even understand most of the slurred dialogue.
But the film has a strong atmosphere, great set design and a suitably icky monster brought to life with decent puppetry effects. It all looks more expensive than it probably was, which is impressive.
This turns King's gruesome and disturbing short story into something very trashy.
