|Pierce Bronsen plays Mike Noonan|
That admission aside? I loved the eerie premise behind this film. Everyone knows that Steven King, is a demigod, already, but while watching this flick, I felt rather sorry for the living-breathing author. That's because I imagined our all-powerful King as having suffered the most horrific nightmares to inspire this work. The movie is just that realistic-feeling and skin-crawling eerie.
WHAT THE MOVIE IS ABOUT:
Main character and writer, Mike Noonan, loses his very young (and beautiful) wife to a horrible accident and learns, in spite of his low sperm count, that she was pregnant at the time of her death. So he feels terribly suspicious about who might be the "father" of this unborn child. I mean, his wife repeatedly took vacations at the lakeside retreat that Noonan inherited, in Maine, and she often traveled there alone. So Noonan decides to investigate the summer home to learn who, exactly, might have offered his wife comfort while he was being so neglectful as her husband.
That lake house is where the author experiences all sorts of strange paranormal phenomena. He is haunted by horrific dreams and gets involved in a very undesirable legal situation with locals in the small wooded town.
This movie is definitely worth the time. The spine-tingling creep factor will haunt you into the next day after watching. There are a number of surprises in the plot, beyond the ordinary hair-raising chill aspects. I strongly recommend it for horror fans.
