| The Tommyknockers (5/10)
The superbly named Stephen King book turned TV miniseries, The Tommyknockers is another story that gets the treatment it deserves, a full length feature. Acquiring quality actors and actresses is obviously a challenge when it comes to a King horror miniseries but Tommyknockers managed to pick up some talent. Jimmy Smits is a suitable lead actor to depend on and the supporting actresses of Marg Helgenberger, Allyce Beasley and Traci Lords all had solid performances were and easy on the eyes. The pace at times was dull not giving much of anything away in terms of the aliens. Characters possessed by alien life forces could have been a bit more sinister instead cheap effects and robotic mannerisms were used to imply they've been taken over. The ending itself was rather ho-hum and didn't have any memorable or re-watchable traits. The Tommyknockers may be worth about one watch and that's it.
