  • Genre: Mystery & Suspense, Drama,
  • Studio: Unspecified
  • Duration: 110 Mins

Given his sound treatment of novelist Richard Matheson's chiller Stir of Echoes, you'd have thought director David Koepp would have been more than qualified to create a decent Stephen King adaptation. However, movie history is littered with poor attempts to exploit literary cash cow King, and this lacklustre psychological thriller unfortunately joins them. In another of his eccentric performances, Johnny Depp stars as a successful author whose writer's block is nothing compared to the hell that he encounters when menacing stranger John Turturro accuses him of plagiarism. Ironically, given its storyline, the film unfolds just like another King book, The Dark Half, a weakness that isn't helped by Koepp's heavy signposting of twists. While Depp's emotional seesawing and Turturro's furrow-browed intensity are entertaining in themselves, you can't help wondering what two fine actors are doing in something that feels made for a small-screen audience.
