Sometimes They Come Back


A family return to their roots but are harassed by dead teenagers.

Stephen King adaptations often represent a lose-lose situation: condense a novel and forsake the detail, or expand a short story and blur the focus.

The latter is the case in this passable 1991 TV movie, which sees teacher Tim Matheson returning to the town where his brother was murdered, only for the (long-dead) killers to taunt him.

Containing elements familiar from Christine, It and Stand By Me, the formula just about holds up, if you can forgive the cheesy dialogue/music. No extras.
