This underrated Stephen King book was adapted into a movie starring Kathy Bates and Jennifer Jason Leigh. Even though we get great performances, there is something lacking and some changes made which cause me to not like the movie as much as the book.
This novel is more of a horror story than the romance Andrew Lloyd Weber turned it into. Having said that, the musical is surprisingly close to the book! The Lon Chaney stays true to the horror side of the story, but that movie has its own differences in regards to speeding up the story. Listen to how all three compare!
This Ridley Scott movie starring Nicholas Cage and Sam Rockwell was adapted from the novel by Eric Garcia. The story follows the story of a conman whose daughter shows up and changes his life and the life of his partner. The movie makes some changes to the end, but overall follows the book pretty close!
