I wish this had a bigger budget, I wish it was better directed and I wish it had better actors. The leads are passable and sometimes good at comedy, but anything serious verges on farcical. The book, especially compared to its sequel, was not perfect. The pacing and flow of the story wasn't great and it was a little long but it managed to be funny without becoming a joke. It also had a level of creepiness that this film did not. The best this film seemed to be able to do was uncensored gore.

Though there are some good elements (primarily lines lifted straight from the book) this film is a mediocre adaptation and not much better as a film in general.

so much worse than the book, they cut the ending

Horrible, b-movie with paranoia all over the place without excelling on that factor
