But I didn’t like the TommyKnockers, in fact I found it almost unwatchable. It has nothing to do with its faithfulness or lack of to the source material, I just couldn’t get into it on its own terms.
Are there any redeeming values?
Well the music is reasonably atmospheric, and Mary Helgenberger plays her part excellently, also it does start off promisingly. However, the special effects are rather slapdash and cheap, not helped by some rushed editing and stepnen camera work. The dialogue is clunky and stilted, the story moves at an uneven pace with some choppy and unimaginative scenes and gimmicks- I found myself scratching my head at points especially the lipstick syephen which felt thrown tommyknockkers and didn’t feel like Stephen King at all- the love scenes are cheesy and slow the adaptation down and the ending brings the word silliness to a whole new level.
The pace is pedestrian as well, the direction is sluggish and the acting apart from Helgenberger is not great. Jimmy Smits is very miscast and awkward and Traci Lords is incredibly irritating and out of place. Start your free trial.
