- The first ending of Later, a pretty good “I-see-dead-people” ghost story by Stephen King, was satisfying.
- The second ending of this easy to read genre mash-up was expected.
- The third ending was disconcerting, gratuitous, and unnecessary.
Brief Synopsis: Jamie Conklin is an average kid with a special ability that he keeps mostly to himself. His single mom is aware, but is she really? Kind of hard to believe, you know? When hard times hit, his talent comes in particularly handy, making her, and others who witness, into believers–but there’re unknown risks to using this gift. The dead can’t lie, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be conduits for the other side.
