This movie too was part of the curriculum and because of it I watched it, and even though I wasn't crazy about it at first, my opinion didn't change after we talked about it in class.
Watch it? Well, yes and no. As I said before it is not a bad movie so if you are looking for a bit of sci-fi, horror and drama as well then you might have a winner on your hands. The casting is fine and the story is intriguing, however, I can be critical when it comes to adaptations and knowing the background I wanted... not more, but something else. I'd say that this movie was inspired by the book rather then based on it.
Until the next item on my list!
