If you are expecting to see the abysmal Hammer House Of horror type recent movie of this film (like one reviewer seems to think is based on the original film) then don't waste your money or time. If you wish to see the theatre version of the original film then go. Don't expect a full scale production this is a pared down version of the original book. It really makes me laugh when people assume that the recent film version is based on the book. It is not. The book is far better. If you really love the book you will see this regardless.
