I loved watching this movie as a kid! I could really relate to the kid that loved reading, and it was fun to watch because the film was shot where I grew up.
I won't give away any spoilers, but there is one part in the movie that was (and still is) super terrifying. It is a scene where the horse is drowning. The horse looks completely terrified, which in turn always terrifies me. But apart from that, I think that it is a great movie!
This was one of my favorite shows as a child. As an adult, it wasn't quite as awesome as I'd remembered but still fun to watch. the movie presents an interesting idea, that as children turn away from books and stories and more towards tv and video games, that the stories and characters slowly die off if there are no children to believe in them. Very creative show and fun to watch with kids of any age.
