Agree wholeheartedly.For some reason, this is a really fun one to watch. It not only is based on a good novella, but it also has solid cinematography that creates a nice atmosphere, an appropriate sense of pace, and an overall feeling of entertainment. I enjoy the look of the locations as well.
Whenever it is on, I tend to stop what I am doing and watch. Strangely, I seem to usually forget the changes made to the story in this adaptation of the Four Past Midnight tale, so when I watch it again, it's like watching it new all over again. This is definitely one of the better adaptations.
I've always thought the same. Historic guilt brought on by a bad break up.After all, and in the end, would you say that Mort actually DIDand 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.'steal the story'
THis is one of my favorite SK movies.I really enjoyed seeing this adaption. I agree that it is one of the better ones. I do recommend that, if you own the movie, you watch the three featurettes, especially the one entitled 'A Look Through It'. It explains a lot of the devices that the filmmakers used to make this movie. Johnny Depp gives an outstanding performance here.
