    Cool, this is the first I've heard of this project. Should be interesting.

    And they probably replaced Miracles with this...

    Good for you ABC! [​IMG]

    Pretty much any Stephen King horror/sci-fi vehicle has been a turkey. You just can't translate him well.

    The only two King feature films I remember being very, very good were Stand By Me (The Body) and The Shawshank Redemption (Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption). Misery was somewhat passable (if not for Kathy Bates' stunning portrayal, it would have been another crap-fest). Carrie was not too bad either, except it sometimes came across as a bad teenage "coming of age" soap opera with blood and guts.

    I hope it's better than "Golden Years," although the whole ancient burial ground/graveyard plot device is very tired.
