Well done adaptation of Stephen Kings novella Secret Window Secret Garden. Story of a successful writing going through a rough divorce and then things get really interesting. Keeps you guessing through the end of the movie.

I liked this movie. This is my example of a real thriller. I think Johnny Depp did a good job moving the story along. It's a bit graphic so you might not want everybody to watch it.

I'm not the best person to ask about psychodramas, and this one is par for the course. Tense, yes. Not the best acting Johnny Depp has ever done, and even unbelievable in places. The surprise twist is supposed to make you see things in a different light, but there are so many inconsistencies as to strain the "willing suspension of disbelief" beyond the limit.

I mostly enjoyed seeing this movie because of Johnny Depp's acting. Other than that it is a decent take on Steven King's novel. This movie is not a must see but is still worth a watch, I would recommend this movie to thriller fans, as well as fans of Johnny Depp.

Mort: You know, the only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story, the ending. And this one... is very good. This one's perfect.
