    The trailer was definitely on the cool side. Looks pretty spooky too. I'll be seeing it.

    One of King's better recent books. It will be interesting to see how they handled some of the aspects of the book - which could provide some major comic relief.

    Yeah, I'm having a really hard time seeing how this book could transfer to film. And I like Morgan Freeman, but I really can't imagine him playing the character in the book, I just can't imagine him being crazy enough. I have a feeling this one is going to be a disappointment. Good book though.

    DREAMCATCHER is one of my favorite King novels, so I have been highly anticipating this film since it was first announced. The trailer looks like they did a pretty good job of capturing the book's mood and atmosphere, and Morgan Freeman and Tom Sizemore are two of my favorite actors, so them being in here is great! Also, I think Freeman can pull off the General role, but if he will remains to be seen.
    I was afraid that the ass weasels
    would get written out of the film because of what they dealt with, but after reading something in Fangoria, I'm almost sure that they thankfully will be in the film.
    I can't wait for this film, and you can bet your ass I'll be first in line!
