    You'll probably be ok then and the movie really isn't that far off from the book. The book just made me feel a lot more for the characters then the movie ever would have alone. Plus they wanted to tie the movie in with The Shining movie which I detest. Lots of King fans don't care for this book either but it's one of his best for me.
    I think Flanagan was stuck between a rock and a hard place with the connection to The Shining. He had to balance the loyalty to the fans of both Stephen King and those that only really know The Shining through the Kubrick film.

    Yeah, the Hellraiser and Savini documentaries are on my radar, and I'm still chipping away at Creepshow....I'm amazed by how low-budget it is.
    The Hellraiser doc is rather in depth. I believe it’s two parts. I really liked it. It’s not revolutionary, but a solid watch. HORROR NOIRE was a good doc as well.

    The Savini one is great. Have not watched the Hellraiser one since I have never seen or read any of the series.

    I forgot to cancel my Shudder trial, so now I've got 30 days to kill watching Horror movies. I watched MANDY and THE HEADHUNTER.....Holy shit, what wastes of time those were. MANDY had about 30 minutes of story, if that, and it felt like a LAWRENCE OF ARABIA-length wannabe epic made by some random guy running around the woods and a quarry with a go-pro. Whacked-out and crazy, and not in a good way. THE HEADHUNTER......I won't say much, for fear of spoilers, but this was another one that was waaaay too dragged out, and it was barely 70 minutes. There are literally TWO people in this film, and one of them appears for maybe 60 seconds. After seeing the hero do the same three things over and over five times, I got it. But then they show him doing the same three things a few more times....Oy. The last 10 minutes were pretty clever, but this was not suited to be a feature film.

    Sounds like I really need to revisit Hollow Man then LOL.

    The theatrical release I'm assuming since it was a RedBox rental. I loved the book.

    Been so long since I've seen Hollow Man but wasn't that kind of a comedy? The Invisible Man is definitely not a comedy but I recommend everyone watch movies for themselves. I'm pretty hard on movies unless they absolutely blow my socks off. Unfortunately, most don't and I like a lot of films that others don't.

    I am but I don't believe they have opened back up here yet. I really want to see A Quiet Place 2.

    I’m surprised. I’ve heard good things about both. Which version of Doctor Sleep did you watch, the theatrical or director’s cut? I heard the director’s cut, while not significantly different structurally, is a lot better.

    I was excited for the Invisible Man when I first heard it announced; however, I never got around to it. When I saw the commercials for it on tv, it looked like it was either a knock-off of "Hollow Man" with Kevin Bacon/Elizabeth Shue or a movie made in response to the "me too" movement which was exploding at the time. Having seen it, are either of those thoughts valid or should I just give it a go?
