In this 1996 Stephen King thriller, Billy and his wife accidentally run down and kill Lempke's aged wife after she pilfers from a drug store. However, the couple is immediately acquitted as townsfolk "testify" in a stacked courtroom. Enraged, Lempke eerily grazes Billy while murmuring the curse, "Thinner."
Within days, Billy credits his new "diet" for his sudden weight loss which continues at a frightful pace. The sight of him going from obese to "normal" to gaunt are truly frightening, especially as the gypsies mockingly camp nearby. Although other townsfolk are cursed in even more grotesque ways (one commits suicide), Billy realizes all are doomed unless he can reason with Lempke, man-to-man. Still, Billy is continually mocked, and flees with a near-fatal slingshot wound through his right hand.
Now, leveraging the threat of violence against Ms. Slingshot, Billy forces Lempke to reveal that the only "antidote" is to pass the curse to someone else, as deceptively as possible. With a few scores to settle, including that of his unfaithful wife, Billy sets the trap, but forgets one very important detail.
By the way...why do people give movies bad ratings if they have crappy special features? I don't know about everyone else, but I buy my movies for the movie, not for the extra stuff!
Also, I must say that the production team of this movie really made Tom Holland's character look extremely convincing, mentally and physically.
In conclusion, This movie is extremely creepy and seems as if it's possible in real life, because it's simply a curse/hex that is at play throughout the movie. It has nothing to do with Aliens, mythical creatures, Ghost's etc. I highly recommend this movie to everyone, even if you aren't a horror fan, you should give this movie a chance.

Without reading the book first, this movie would be horrible with a dumb plot and subpar acting. But the book is so interesting that it made the movie tolerable.Published 28 days ago by Amazon Customer
