Rating: 7.5/10

Brilliant adaptation. Admittedly, it scared the be-Jesus out of me, but, I cannot say that I am a representative sample of this genre! I rarely watch horror movies and only, when I have to, usually, through other peoples’ strong suggestions… Hence, the only reason that I went to the cinema for a horror movie, is to grasp the reactions of King’s magnificent pen, as captured in the audience’ behavior. The results were  not discouraging and we ended up having quite fun, especially when we synchronized our screams, howls, shrieks, yells, screeches, shouts and shrills! Okay, I am being overly dramatic, but with the unstoppable horror action, the sudden change in the mood, the loss of innocence theme, accompanied by the fear to survive, all portrayed and glued together beautifully, this movie will certainly stay in your mind for a long time and travel you to another age and period. I have to admit, though, that my review should be treated with caution, since, and I admit it, have not watched the 1990’s film-shame on me! It just went to my bucket list-I just give it a bit more time though, you know, to get mentally ready. For the incurably romantics, a sequel is set to be released on September 6, 2019! 7.5 it is then…
