    Thinner is a novel which was published under his Richard Bachman pseudonym.

    Thanks for answering my question. I just thought from the previous poster that it might have been a short story. Cause they said that they think it would have been better as part of a Creepshow like movie instead of a single movie.

    That is typically the case with most adaptions. The original will always be better.

    The Thinner book was awesome, its definitely one to read. I saw the movie ages ago but can't really remember if I liked it or not.

    grin willard Grin. Boasting a profile u could cut cheese with.

    I loved the movie! It was fun. It was good trash, like 'Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls'. :) Full of nice performances. Joe Mantegna and the guy playing the old Gypsy shaman were standouts.
