Sometimes They Come Back....& I Hope They Back Again... (by Majid-Hamid)
STCM is surely an underrated masterpiece written by Stephen King SK and excellently directed to become one of the most greatest horror film within SK movies. Most of SK movies is exceptional, they were great STCM, FIRESTARTER, SHINING, CARRIE, MISERY, .... but some is definitely bad, i mean it's bad but it's so good to watch MANGLER, STCM2, STCM3, .. But i am disagree with the rating given, for i think this movie should be a given a higher rating at least 7.0. This is because the movie is so good, the plot line, climax and also the acting performances showed by Tim Matheson are <more>
really convincing.Overall i rate this movie 10 out of 10 Excellent
For a Fan of Horror, It is important to see as Much Types of Films as Possible. That is Why I Decided to rent this Film. I was not Disappointed, just Very Impressed. It was Scary than "Child's Play". From Beginning to End it Delivered Thrills, Good Acting, and Plenty of Fun. There was some Comic Relief spread throughout the Film, but not an Excessive Amount. Who would I Recommend this Film to? Anyone. Even Someone Who Normally Does not like Horror. Everyone NEEDS to see this.
underrated quality horror flick (by pepekwa)
90's character actor tim matheson stars in a surprisingly scary adaptation of a stephen king short story about a guy returning to the town he lived in when he was a child which brought back nightmares of the incident that led to the deaths of his brother and the three hoodlums who tried to mug them. It takes a lot to spook me but the 3 main villains in this really played their part and played their bad guys role to the extreme. I was surprised to see this was merely a TV movie, there's always a diamond in the rough and this is one of them. While there are some glaring plot holes and <more>
some questions that are not answered, it doesn't detract from being a chillingly entertaining tale about past indisgressions in small town America.
Sometimes The Movie Is Better Than The Actual Story (by bayardhiler)
As a general rule of thumb, the book or short story of which a movie is based on is almost always better than the film. Either that or in a small number of cases, the movie is just as good as the source. Very rarely do you have a movie adaptation that surpasses the original material. 1991's TV adaptation of Stephen King's "Sometimes They Come Back" is one such rarity. Now before I go on, let me just say that I love Stephen King and his style of writing, that combination of imagination, suspense, character development, and morbid humor that has become his trademark. But as <more>
this film shows, even the great Stephen King can sometimes be outdone on film. The story begins by introducing Jim Norman played by Tim Matheson , a high school literature teacher forced to return to his hometown due to financial reasons. But the return forces Jim to relieve his darkest memory, that of his older brother being murdered by three hoods in a dark train tunnel. The hoods are killed by a passing train-partly due to Jim's actions-and since then, Jim has tried to move on with his life. But as fate would have it, certain dark souls aren't done with him and it's not long before several students go missing in his class and are each replaced by teenagers who look strangely like the hoods from Jim's past. From there, it's a fight for survival as Jim must protect his family and over come his past demons. Despite the fact that this is a TV movie, it has the feeling of being one made for the theater with its creepy atmosphere, competent acting, and good story themes. Tim Matheson does an excellent job transitioning from comedy to drama and getting lost in the character. The villains here are scary, riding around town in a supped up 50's hotrod with flames flying out the exhaust and are played to the hilt by the three actors, especially by Nicholas Sadler, who plays the leader of the pack, Vinnie Vincent. The makeup that's used for when the villains transform you'll see is quite spooky for being 1990's television work. But more than any of that, "Sometimes They Come Back" is able to incorporate the central theme that good will always triumph over evil and the ending may very well move some to tears. The original King story was a bit darker in its ending and how Jim deals with the three hoods who've come back and I don't think it had the same emotional feeling that this movie did. Perhaps if I had read the story before seeing this movie, I might have thought differently about it. Then again, maybe not. Either way, there's no question that "Sometimes" is a well made but sadly underrated Stephen King adaptation that deserves to be more well known than it is. You might be able to get a copy of the DVD from Amazon if they still have any. If not, don't fret because the whole movie is available on you tube. So, if you're in the mood for some spooky fun combined with a great story, "Sometimes They Come Back" is a great way to spend some time. P.S. If you find yourself teaching a class and a new student tells you he transferred from Milford, run away as fast you can to your nearest church!
"Sometimes They Come Back" by Tom McLoughlin "Friday the 13th Part 6-Jason Lives","One Dark Night" is an adaptation of the short story written by Stephen King.The plot is simple:a school teacher Tim Matheson is chased by the dead punks who killed his brother when he was a kid.The film is well-made and has some creepy moments.The direction is solid,the acting is pretty good,unfortunately I found climax to be the weakest part of the film.Still if you like horror movies give this one a look.Followed by two sequels!
Freaky Film (by kevinwcasey)
I first saw this film at the age of 8 it scared the crap out of me and even though this was the first horror film i ever saw i was hooked in Stephen King ever since then. The story now seems a bit far fetched and the scarry scenes that i witness then, as i look back on them now they were pretty lame by todays horror standards.
A Wonderful Movie (by beck-61)
This movie is quite good, even if it's not very known, or an expensive production. Tim Matheson is very suitable on the role of the afraid teacher, worried from his students, and the guys Rusler, Sandler & Mitchum are full of energy, and style. You love to watch them making Norman's life difficult! Chris Demetral as little Wayne also did a fantastic job, playing his role with a special, beautiful way. So, the cast is well-made. But what about the plot? Based on a Stephen King short story, from the book "Night Shift", it's here with many little differences for <more>
example the names:Chip Osway>Chip Conway, Kathy Slavin>Kate Flanchet, David Garcia>David North, Vincent "Vinnie" Corey> Vinnie Vincent, and more and too add more information, and a different, much better end. Something good is that there is not much violence, and also not blood, or language that may be annoying. There were some exciting action scenes, like the one where Billy, riding his bike, is trying to get away from Lawson's Gang who are chasing him with their car. Or of course, the disturbing memory of the adult Jim: the punks stabbing his older brother in the tunnel, many years ago. Terry Plumeri has added a suspenseful music in the beginning, but the final piano music is, at least, touching, matching the very beautiful scenes. like, in the end, when ''Wayne'' hugs Jim and asks him if they will be together again . It's a good film, and people must not ignore this, just because it's not that famous. People are often looking for very known actors before watching a movie, and this is wrong.
