Ok everyone, i know how everyone is so very excited to see the Necroscope in live action! Sounds GREAT! however i disagree(this is in MY OWN opinion) for the fact that the movie NEVER gives the BOOK justice! i mean Harry-Dragosani-Max batu- Sir Keenan Gormley - Alec Kyle......everyone in Master Lumley's Breath Taking Saga have impacted my life so much that i have to ask myself... Who has the Right....no the Privlage of taking any of these awsome and inspiring characters and binding them to a physical form? I have a mental image of what everyone looks like and i cannot bare to find that the "Actors" DO NOT GIVE THE CHARACTERS JUSTICE!
And this my friends is far scarier than any Wamphyri Lord!
please do not take this the wrong way.
but when people hear the name Harry Keogh i do not want them to think of some Actor who will never Ever even come close to the Necroscope we all know and love!
and THAT friends is my opinion

That's a very understandable opinion Strife, I too have a mental image of what the characters should look like, what their voices should sound like and how their manerisms should be, which I'm sure is totally different to yours and everyone else's.
I think many of us are concerned that it wil be ruined with Hollywood changing the storyline, hiring unconvincing or generally inappropriate actors and just genrally not being up to the job. However, what if they actually do a good job? I know it won't be exactly as you want it to be but what it it is close?
I'm certain to be dissapointed but am willing to take the risk and I'd rather it be made and I didn't like it because it wasn't true to the book than it not be made. If it's a successful movie (by successful I mean loved by the masses, not necessarily us) think of how much attention it will bring? There'll be much more interest in Necroscope and it might mean a whole new wave of people discovering and appreciating this amazing series, isn't that worth it?
If it was really bad you could always just re-read the books until your own imagined characters are back in your head!Where's the Derby Dumpling?!

Yes Silver, I see you've got a valid point. even if they DO manage to mess it up it shall not effect my mental images of the events that take place for Master Lumley has made it a point to describe Every single detail so that one may be able to fully grasp the events that take place.
so even if the movie does ruin it for many it will not effect my views on the story.

It hapened that way for me with I am Legend. I thought the way they'd changed the ending of the movie totally changed the entire theme and wasn't anywhere near as powerful as the original. That's only one of the things that disapointed me about that film!
I've lent that book to 2 people who enjoyed the film, and after reading the book said that they got exactly what I meant and agreed, and one of them still enjoyed the film aswell. They both read that book because of the film and wouldn't have gone near it otherwise.Where's the Derby Dumpling?!

Many years ago (1980?), I saw and enjoyed Kubrick's "The Shining" which led me to read the book. Although they were very different from each other, I found I could appreciate each as a separate entity and get pleasure from both. I've subsequently read most of Stephen King's novels. He's a great writer.
I might have to pick up a copy of I Am Legend. I loved "The Omega Man" with Charlton Heston and enjoyed the recent Will Smith version so it will have to go on my to-read list, I guess.
