Finished it today, and told my wife I will happily rewatch it with her if she's gonna give it a go. It totally won me over by the end. I think a part of it is that the story is something I would have dreamed up back in 1983. I mean, it wouldn't have had all the grown-up stuff in it, but my world pretty much revolved around King and all the movies riffed on here. And a big thumbs up to the scene with the science teacher and his lady watching The Thing!
