I sort of remember this... I think they put the first chapter or two in some issues of Esquire that year. Can't say that I'll be first in line to see it though.

Not familiar with the novel, but my first thought after reading the brief synopsis was that it sounds kinda like that Indie horror flick The Signal from a couple years back.  Just with cell phones instead of televisions.

I'm a voracious reader, but I've honestly never read a Stephen King novel.  I have the utmost respect for him as an author and I've enjoyed his film adaptations, for the most part.  When it comes to books I've always been more into the political/military/spy novels, hence my love of Tom Clancy books.  I've also recently, in the past two years, really gotten into more nonfiction books of the same ilk.  Currently reading two nonfictions:  "Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy" by Henry Kissinger and "Cobra II,"  which is the inside story/report of the invasion and occupation of Iraq.  I highly recommend "How the End Begins:  The Road to a Nuclear World War III" by Ron Rosenbaum.  Very thought-provoking and really ties in with the state of today's world.

Sorry for the tangent!  Lol!

 Never read the book.  But, I do see a trend in Cusack's movie selections.  He is a very likable actor, but it seems like he is just about cashing in now.  2012...he is lucky...most actors couldn't recover from such a horrible film.

The book is decent to good. I image the film being something like the movie "Pontypool", which I highly recommend for those that haven't seen it (last I checked it was available streaming from Netflix).
