Synopsis

Watch: The Dark Half 1993 123movies, Full Movie Online – When Thad Beaumont was a child, he had an operation to remove a tumour from his brain. during the operation, it was discovered that far from being a tumor, the growth was a twin brother of Thad’s that never developed. Years later, Thad is a successful author, writing his serious books under his own name, and his pulp money-makers under the pseudonum “George Stark”. When blackmailed by someone who has discovered his secret, Thad publically “buries” George Stark. From that point on, Thad increasingly becomes the prime suspect in a series of gruesome murders..
Plot: Thad Beaumont is the author of a highly successful series of violent pulp thrillers written under the pseudonym of ‘George Stark’, but when he decides to ‘kill-off’ his alter-ego in a mock ceremony, it precipitates a string of sadistic murders matching those in his pulp novels, which are soon discovered to be the work of Stark himself. Looking like a maniacal version of his counterpart, Stark is not so willing to quit the writing game – even if it means coming after Thad’s wife and their baby.

Has the otherworldly, take-a-bite-out-of-your-arm sense of King’s humor, with Romero at the lens
The Dark Half is a film I wouldn’t go out of my way to show to my friends for the first time like other films by George A. Romero (Living-dead pictures, and some of the obscurities), or a few choice Stephen King adaptations (The Shining and Shawshank Redemption being tops). But if it shows up on TV I tend to take a gander for a few, and end up watching it till the unusual, nerve-chilling ending. There’s some part of King’s writing that at times goes too much for the cheap scares, or rather, doesn’t do enough to earn them. This time, however, Romero does catch enough of the smoke in the fire of King’s book here; I’d love to sit down and actually read the whole book myself, to see how much was incorporated from King’s often brilliant, if perpetually odd, writing, into the final project. It’s also territory for Romero that isn’t very new, though isn’t one of his worst pictures either.

Timothy Hutton, usually in lesser quality pictures, stars here as a writer who happens to have a certain ‘alias’ in his writing. Unfortunately, whenever he hears a certain calling card- being the sparrows- it sets him off into territory he’s afraid to go into, especially with a wife and family. The divide between Thad Beaumont, the common garden-variety writer of Hutton’s character, and George Stark, the madman writer of pulp fiction also played by Hutton, makes for the more intriguing parts to the film. Thankfully, unlike Secret Window, the sort of duality of man, or of the writer in this case, isn’t saved up for some over-the-top climax. Here it’s meant more as a psychological study, and it’s here that Romero scores his best points in his adapting the material. Like his film Martin, he knows how to up the ante on the terror involved inside of the mind. In fact, it’s scenes showing Beaumont/Stark writing ala the birds that end up becoming more chilling than those with the usual horror violence in them.

Thanks to Hutton, a solid supporting cast, and an ending that does keep one guessing more than could be expected of the material, Romero has a pretty decent work here, and a King adaptation that shouldn’t be as much of an embarrassment as some of the others. Individual scenes end up even being mini-masterpieces, even amidst a script that loses its energy and goes into the mundane and usual. Besides, any film with a line like this: “You always were the clumsy one, old hoss”, deserves a little recognition, however minor. Under-appreciated and very watchable, though nothing wildly spectacular. 7.5/10

good idea, OK execution and a couple of problems
In 1968, young Thad Beaumont has a brain tumor removed. It turns out to be an undeveloped twin. The sparrows swarm supernaturally. 23 years later, Thad (Timothy Hutton) is a college professor and a successful writer under the pen name George Stark. He’s married to Liz (Amy Madigan) with young twins. Fred Clawson discovers that he’s the secret pulp novel writer and blackmails him. His publishers accept killing off George Stark even with a fake tombstone. They try to publicize transitioning to the safer Thad Beaumont writing. Then the people involved start getting killed off by a mysterious figure and Thad is the prime suspect for Sheriff Alan Pangborn.

I like the basic idea and I think the movie is well made. However, a couple things keep bothering me. First, the whole idea of ‘killing’ off Stark doesn’t make sense. Clawson’s blackmail is based on the fact that it would hurt business. Yet they close up the Stark business themselves. A better reason has to be written to explain killing off Stark. It may be as simple as Thad being tired of the violent imagery.

The second is that I don’t understand why the sheriff doesn’t arrest Thad on that first night. It seems like he has enough evidence. It would be more compelling if he had less evidence. It would be more tense if the killer’s face isn’t revealed so early. They should stretch out the questions until the third act. The overall work is good. Timothy Hutton is a compelling lead. If only the movie could fix my concerns, this could be great.
