DirectorGeorge A. Romero
CastTimothy Hutton Amy Madigan Julie Harris
NotesThe film begins with a young man getting headaches. A brain tumour is suspected. In hospital when his skull is opened are found the remains of what had been a twin when in the womb. Time jumps 20 years and the young man, Thad, is now a very successful horror writer writing under a pseudonym. People connected to him are being murdered and he is the suspect (his fingerprints are found at the crime scenes). For once I won't give away what happens. This is Romero (disappointingly) and Stephen King joined at the hip. One of the victims is an old man who as he is dragged out of his pick-up loses his artificial leg (below the knee amputee).
