Film #92: The Dark Half (1991)

Plot - Based on the Stephen King novel that I simply had to put down due to the obnoxious father character in the first fifty pages of the novel. The film's far more concise, but still runs a little long.

Form - Straightforward.

F/X - A little cool gore, something absent in most King adaptations.

Acting - Michael Rooker is well cast, something that almost never happens.

Mise en scene - No.

Quotables - "He was castrated and had his penis stuck in his mouth."

Cool stuff - The best special effects are literally in the first and last five minutes of the film.
