Andrť ōvredal talks The Long Walk with Rue Morgue.

As a director, itís extremely inspiring to be able to tell a story that is so human and so gruesome at the same time. Itís like man vs. the machine in a way, and about the innocence of these boys and how they donít really grasp what theyíve gotten themselves into until itís way too late. Iím in awe of Stephen King for having understood so much about humanity at the age of 18 or 19 when he wrote this. Itís an adult story, but written with a young personís perspective, probably of the Vietnam War; itís kind of an allegory, Iím guessing, for his fears of being sent to Vietnam at the time.
