From SOMEWHERE IN TIME to I AM LEGEND, writer Richard Matheson's tales have frequently made their way to the screen, and this adaptation of his story "Button, Button" is no exception. Richard Kelly (DONNIE DARKO) directs Cameron Diaz and James Marsden in this horror film about a couple who find a box that has power over life and death.
