    Nicely paced, perfectly acted, wonderfully written, appropriately grotesque, and surprisingly frightening without banking on musical cues or jump scares. This movie is a wonderful romp into desperation and delusion, with a satisfying conclusion that takes your expectations about it being a ham-fisted ending and dashes them almost as soon as they appear. Personally, this may be my favorite Steven King adaptation.

    ★★★

    Better than most superhero genre-types, but it still suffers from a few flaws that prevent it from being bumped up higher. If you wanted a gritty supernatural movie, you more or less get exactly that, though at times it feels like some things are done or said strictly to earn that R rating rather than contribute to the overall story. The story, by the way, is pretty great, easy to follow, and just a tad complex to give you something to think about after you finish watching it.

There's a lot to cheer for with this movie, and it does well as a kids film. With that in mind, my biggest problem lies in the female lead, who doesn't really change much from when you see her as…
