The final act gave me goosebumps no other horror film has before. I was scrunched up in my blanket, completely immersed.

If it weren't for the somewhat ridiculous acting on behalf of characters other than the protagonist himself in the first act (it may have been excellent or appropriate at the time of the screening, I wouldn't know), this would probably be a 5.

So much about this... The terrific visuals; which mesmerise and encapsulate with a character of its own, flamboyant in style and... More innovation. The strange surrealism, and mysterious elements, are things that I cannot get enough of in one lifetime.

And don't even get me started on that soundtrack...

So yeah. I loved it.

Edit: I can't believe what this would have done to people in the 80s haha.

Edit #2: Fluck it, it's a 5.Hide

This is a chilling adaption of Stephen King's classic novel that has earned it's place in the horror hall of fame. Long establishing and tracking shots paired with eery noises, a downright spooky set and great acting throughout give the viewer full immersion in the film. I couldn't tear my eyes from the screen. You get a real sense of isolation when watching this film and it certainly delivers scares, not jumps, but a more psychological sort of simple terror.
