How Did This Sneak By Me?

I saw this randomly thru a series of links. Scary main picture grabbed my attention. I've read the book that this is based off of. The video has all the main elements the book had. Unfortunately as far as I can tell, the director created this 6 minute clip simply to hopefully coax the people who own the rights to the book to LET him make a movie out of it. I would love it to death. currently has it written up as a 2009 mini-series event. I'm not entirely sure it's all going to work out that way, but I'd love it if they kept this quality and intensity in making it. Most of Stephen King's stuff works better as a mini-series because you rip the heart out of the book cramming it all into a 2 hour movie.
