Movie Reviews

“‘Firestarter’ qualifies, but just barely (…) A damp squib (…) While it has a few genuine scares, it never achieves the deliriously freaky heights one expects from a film version of one of King’s cheesier novels”

Frank Scheck: The Hollywood Reporter

“I was honestly expecting something much worse (…) I think this would be best enjoyed by someone who had never seen the original 1984 film; that way, you won’t be constantly comparing the two in your head.”
