Though based on King's story, Hanson's film gets under your skin in a way that can only work in the cinema. It's raw and intimate and just ...CLOSE...it invades your personal space. Just when you think the camera is going to cut away from the horror, it does NOT. It just lingers on it. The performance by Gideon Emery is riveting and it has to be since it's a one man show. Emery displays a physical and emotional range that presents a man who starts off as tragically human but ends up primal and absurd.
