I'm surprised that this is based on a Stephen King novel, as the prevailing theme that human beings are the lowest form of life on our planet does not sound like King. It had a strong anti-Christian theme in it too. The movie was watchable until the simply awful ending, which ruined the whole experience for me. A very depressing movie, which most humans should avoid. What were they thinking with the horrible ending? No wonder it bombed at the box office.
