    I liked the ending of both. I saw the movie first, but I still liked both endings. The way the characters acted at the end of the movie was likely the way real people would act in a similar situation. It left me sad but satisfied, and, like another post-er said, it left me thinking about it for a while. Both are great.

    Enjoyed both endings. Read the book first, then saw the movie. It appears even SK approved of/liked the ending of the movie:
    "Frank wrote a new ending that I loved. It is the most shocking ending ever and there should be a law passed stating that anybody who reveals the last 5 minutes of this film should be hung from their neck until dead."

    While I liked the movie very much, I thought the ending didn't make sense .

    David Drayton had protected his son through thick and thin and then, because they run out of gas, he kills him? Not exactly in the, fight-til-your-dying -breath-to protect... mode.

    I like the movie, it is one of my favorite SK movies. I also read the book once. And as for the ending, I liked the movie better, as in the book the ending was too open for me But in general, I like them both, it is a great horror story showing different people's characters and their ways of coping with the situation.

    This is my favorite adaption of SK's stories. Really love the movie, those spiders still give me nightmares
    One thing I wished they showed was as that big behemoth was walking across the road, they should have showed that it was covered in those bug beetles, I liked that imagery from the book.

    There is a blu-ray edition that has a black and white version of the movie. It's fun to watch it in black and white. It gives it an old horror movie feel.

    Nice, I'll have to check it out, B&W should give it even more of a kick
