For anyone who read the book before seeing the movie.
Besides a mediocre performance from Tom Skeritt this adaptation of Steven Kings 600+ page novel is up to par with some of his best big screen productions. Each scene is expertly crafted right out of the pages of Desperation (probably due to the fact that King wrote the screenplay). The police precinct including the desk and each cell seemed as if it were pulled straight from the novel itself. The characters appearances and each detail down to the smiley face on the bag of marijuana that lands Peter and Mary in the slammer were constructed with sheer perfection. If you read the book you’ll notice that they changed little things to get with the times, like the hitchhikers shirt instead of being Pete Tesh is Bob Dylan, and there’s a small reference towards the end to Donald Rumsfeld and Adam Sandler.

When I saw that there was going to be a TV movie version of this book I was worried because of the graphic sequences needed to do Desperation justice. I was not disappointed. The animal sequences were the most impressive, with vultures and dogs standing as an animal army together. The scene where the dogs line the road for miles was one of the eeriest animal sequences King has ever incorporated in a film (Others including: Cujo, The Night Flyer, etc.).

In my opinion no one was more suited for the role of Collie Entragian than Ron Perlman, he gave the best performance in the entire production in my opinion (not to insult Steven Webber). Though Tom Skeritt wasn’t as good as he could have been, he was still the perfect person for his role. Skeritt just didn’t come off as an asshole as well as he should have. Everyone else was good, down to the Chinese actors who had absolutely no lines.

In summary if you read the book you will like this movie the only thing that wasn’t in the movie was the tree-house that David went to in his mind (not necessarily a bad thing). The director did great job of filling in the viewer on loose ends throughout the film, and it is a strict adaptation of the novel. I’ve heard critics comment on his use of left wing ideology in this screenplay but I have no idea what they’re talking about, maybe I’m just not politically coherent enough to understand, but I feel that the movie deserves the recognition as a horror movie over that of political satire.

Thank you so much for reading my opinion I appreciate you taking the time of day to observe what I have to say.

Trying Desperately To Be A Horror
I am a rabid Steven King fan and as much as I loved the book I was rather disappointed at the televised version of it. I wondered, why would anyone want to publicly televise one of the bloodiest, most sadistic and most horrific Steven King novel ever written? But Mick Garris would do such an act. The book was good, very good but the mini series was okay. If follows the story of four separate parties of people who happened to wonder into a deserted town called Desperation. Unbeknownst to them, the town has been ruthlessly taken over by an alien disguised as the town’s local sheriff.

There are a few good things. The acting was superb for a series, could have been better but I liked it. It was not too overdone, like many other series, and it was not undercooked. The casting for the roles was excellent. I never in my life would have though of Ron Perlman as Collie Entragain, but he proved that he could be vicious and insane. It was a very good job by some very talented people. The set design was good, but not too good, but it was good.

However, the few things that could have made this TV movie worth seeing would be the graphic carnage and the insanity of the enter town. The book vividly describes all these bodies strategically placed in various places around Desperations and yet the movie didn’t make any reference to it. Some of the deaths that occurred in the novel were not touched upon and the importance of the snakes, dolls, coyotes and the buzzards are rarely even mentioned. There were evil Dobermans, nailed cats, corroding bodies, twisted cougars and rape and none of these shown. They didn’t even show the silhouette of Tak in the movie, but in the book it was.

Despite a good effort into trying to broadcast a very violent best-selling novel, it turned out to be a so-so TV drama. I think the problem was that it was on basic cable. If it was broadcasted through HBO, Cinemax, Stars or Encore, they would have gotten away with a lot more. Unlike those stations, ABC censors out a lot of gruesome and relevant elements. But, if they would have converted it into a real movie, not only would it may have a chance but they could have showed everything in it.

Overall, if you like a good attempt at a watered down Steven King novel with good actors and acting but some relevant points missing, this is a good movie for you. Don’t get me wrong, I liked, but it had so much more potential that was not reached.
