How's "Secret Window"...worth a rent?

Any comments from "viewer's like me"? is it scary, good acting? worth at least an afternoon rental? Thanks.

I'd say worth a rent just for Johnny Depp's (as usual) outstanding performance. Not really scary and as far as the story goes, I figured it out way too soon.

Yeah, it's not terribly hard to figure out. It's definitely not scary, but there are some suspenseful movies. I would recommend buying it, but it is definitely worth a rent.

Regarding the disc, for those that have seen it or own it, which Spiderman-2 trailer is included? The Teaser or the second Full Trailer?

Thanks

Worth renting for an amusing performance by Depp rather than the plot itself.

Definitely worth a rent, good performances by Depp and Turturro.

Definitely worth a rental. Like others said, Depp's delivers another great performance. The movie's got a good story but the ending's a bit of a letdown.

Depp is fantastic.

I had the movie figured out from watching the trailer when it originally aired on TV.

It is based on a Stephen King story, and it is not a great movie.

Depp was worth watching, as usual. Worth a rental, no more.

I agree, I finally saw it and it was very rehashed. Though I didn't predict. It got very old and the whole ending was so tired and then turned into a typical "Stephen King Book to Movie translation" turns out lousy I think.
