The reason why I bought this compilation of previously published short fictions by Richard Matheson is because the first short story, "Button, Button" was adapted into a major studio released movie starring Cameron Diaz, adequately titled "The Box".

The movie itself was such an unbelievably boring feast you could fall asleep for an hour and not miss any important details. But the short story, well, it's different. "Button, Button" was way much better it seemed hard to believe "The Box" was an adaptation of it.

For those who like reading short stories that owns some quality suspense, I recommend you read this one.
