I am literally floored by the quality of the reviews.
Sadly the same thing cannot be said about the movies :))
The Clan of Cave Bear (1986)
The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996)
And I also came across a quaint little hypothesis -
"That any given movie will most likely hurt bad when it tells us it was based on, inspired by, or ‘faithfully’ adapted from a story by : Edgar Alan Poe, Brahm Stoker, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, or (most recently) Michael Crichton."
Considering the fact that Stephen King continues to remain my absolute favourite author, I find this hard to digest. But then again .......... maybe the reviewer does have a point.
