The book was even better.

But this is one of the rare cases where a Stephen King based movie is actually good.

Yes, that's what my son said too. :) He's the one who suggested we watch it after he read the book.

If you have read the book then the film is going to be bad. It will an average-to-good if you haven't read the book.

The tidal wave of zombies looks pretty ridiculous, their limbs would all be broken. It's a shame because if they had stuck to the book, it could have been a fantastic movie.

Hopefully they will include the Battle of Yonkers.
