bit off topic , but I read the Bachman novels , written by Stephen King under a pseudonym . One of the stories was The Running Man and was far superior to the crappy film that followed

Maximum Overdrive was a Bachman story made into a film, I think King also wrote the screenplay, not that bad, certainly a little different.

Hackey Lad that was my point usually Stephen King books made into films are pretty poor but in my opinion Carrie nailed it at the end

The original Psycho had an unexpected ending too. In fact Alfred Hitchcock stipulated that no one should be admitted into a cinema where it was showing once the film had started. That may sound strange to younger moviegoers, but people could go into a cinema at any stage of the showing in those days, in fact the theatre never really emptied, you could stay and watch the films twice if you wanted too.

I quite liked it, it was made to look like a 50's B movie (the black and white version is the one to watch) and did it well, really unexpected ending.

Lol, I was describing it to a workmate the day after I saw it. He said that he no longer had an inkling to spend his hard earned money on a movie that he "now knew the ending of."

Agreed. I wonder why the changed the plot so much when the book was an excellent premise, far more believable and a bit spooky that people would send you to your execution for a few quid.

Think they changed the plot to make it into a sparkly ,Hollywood blockbuster If they had stuck to the original story it would've made a really good, thought provoking film
