Of course based upon the Stephen King book, the story revolves around an overweight lawyer who becomes cursed. A gypsy makes him get thinner and thinner but it's getting very dangerous! Now he must call upon his crime pals to try to stop the gypsy and make him lift the curse before it's too late! One heck of a story and an interesting adaptation, just not a fantastic one. Read the book first, then see this for of course the book is much better.
