    Fun to watch? I think it's creepy, especially the ending. I can't say what it is bc I don't know how to attach a spoiler alert.
    I like the movie though, if for no other reason than to shut my friend's husband up, who can't stand Johnny Depp just because lots of women "make googly eyes at Johnny Depp." He said Johnny Depp's a talentless actor, then went raving on and on about how his looks are the only thing he has going for him and how he was going to be out of a job when he loses his looks. But I digress.
    The ending of Secret Window is burned into my memory probably because of what I now know is an ECU (extreme close-up shot) of the character's body part.
    Richard, who's a director of photography, "liked the ECU closing shot."
    I thought it made the movie totally creepy, which of course I enjoy anyway or I wouldn't watch horror movies all the time. My mom couldn't understand why I watched horror. Her favorite movie was Gone With the Wind. She watched it every single year.

    Secret window is one of my absolute favorite stories by Stephen King. I absolutely loved the movie adaptation as well! This movie was well acted and well written. One of my top 5 favorite stories and movies.

    After all, and in the end, would you say that Mort actually DID
    'steal the story'
    and was driven to the madness by his secret guilt ?
    I've watched this so many times and that's just what I have always thought.
