A very good Stephen King Movie,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stephen King's Riding The Bullet  [DVD] (DVD)
On the rare occasion that Stephen King books do work as movies they tend to really, really work (Stand By Me, The Mist, Shawshank Redemption etc.) and Riding the Bullet is thankfully among these elite. It feels a bit like an extended episode of the Twilight Zone: you are never quite sure what is real, and the whole film has a generally quirky feel. It has been superbly directed and edited, the casting and acting is spot on which is even more astounding considering this is an independent movie.
Riding the Bullet is based on the story of the same name which Stephen King first released at the turn of the century as an ebook only and was only available for free for the first few days as a pioneering publicity stunt; I was one of the lucky ones to download it before the servers got clogged! It was a really good story and has since also been released in the short story collection Everything's Eventual. The screenplay remains true to the story so both King fans and Horror fans will be happy with this one.
