Trailer Dolan's Cadillac





You win some and you lose some. That's a fair assessment of Stephen King adaptations. So which side does Dolan's Cadillac end up on? Check out the trailer and predict for yourself.

You can dig up some stills as well as the trailer over on the official Minds Eye Pictures website, but in my opinion the trailer would have been better off left buried. After all it was King himself who taught us that "Sometimes, dead is better."

See for yourself after the plot crunch and tell us what you think below in our comments section.

Synopsis
"Based on Stephen King’s eponymous short story, Dolan’s Cadillac is a dark tale of murderous and unrepentant revenge. A modern twist on the Edgar Allan Poe classic ‘The Cask of Amontillado,’ Dolan’s Cadillac proves that revenge really is a dish best served cold.

Robinson is a non-descript middle school teacher whose beloved wife, Elizabeth, witnesses an execution in the desert and becomes a target for the executioner, notorious Las Vegas crime boss Jimmy Dolan. Dolan’s vast wealth was accumulated through his human trafficking operation, a lucrative business he will not jeopardize. The mobster succeeds in having Elizabeth killed before she can testify against him. Without a witness to the murders, Dolan goes free.

The knowledge that Dolan is behind Elizabeth’s death fosters in Robinson an insatiable thirst for revenge. However, Dolan is virtually untouchable, traveling only in his custom Cadillac with tank-like protection. On a steep descent into madness, Robinson begins seeing visions of his dead wife wherever he goes. Spurred on by Elizabeth’s spectre, Robinson begins his elaborate plan to kill Jimmy Dolan.

The Cadillac that was once his armor may now become his tomb.

This is vengeance, Stephen King style."

Man, what the fuck? That trailer gives just about everything that was in the story away. I hate trailers these days. There's no point in seeing movies once you've seen them... you've already gotten the entire story in a few minutes for free.

I really enjoyed this short story.

I really enjoyed the audio book with Rob Lowe.

But this trailer is teh suck. I know you shouldn't judge by a trailer- but there is alot added to this that makes no sense in the context of the story and really muddies the morality of the original tale.

It appears as though they really lost the plot- figuratively and literally.

And this movie probably doesn't have 'The Stuff' to entertain us.

Damn that was one generic, boring trailer!
