    Aw c'mon Kip! While it wasn't as scary & deep as the book, it was pretty darned good. Seeing Gage still be cute, yet terribly afflicted by evil & that voice "I wanna paaay wif yeee-ew Daddy!" really gave this flick the mega-creepy factor. Also Fred Gwynne & even the soundtrack (the oil truck barreling down the road to The Ramones' :Sheena is a Punk Rocker") really added to the greatness of this King classic. The talk of it's being remade makes me wanna' hurl, but that's Hollyweird for ya'; nothing original & CGI out the wazoo!
