    Synopsis


    Needful Things
    Satan opens an antique shop in a small town and lures the residents into evil actions in this supernatural chiller. Based on a novel by the prolific Stephen King, the film bears many of the author's trademarks, such as the New England setting and the focus on regular people tempted by the forces of supernatural evil. Here, the enticements toward bad behavior comes from the "Needful Things" shop, owned by new resident Leland Gaunt (Max von Sydow). Gaunt's shop offers an odd collection of goods, each of which happens to be the object of desire of a local resident. Instead of money, however, Gaunt demands that townspeople perform a series of simple pranks. He has a plan, and these actions escalate until the town is at violent war with itself. The residents are brought to life by a talented cast, led by von Sydow's suave devil and including Ed Harris as the local sheriff, J.T. Walsh as a corrupt politician, and Amanda Plummer as a seemingly innocent baker. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

      good vs. evil, stephen king style

      Well acted, good story and well directed, with some wickedly goofy scenes and aperfect musical score which fits each mood very well. After seeing Max in Exorcist I realize he was just as good in this. Ed Harris does a nice job as the main good guy. I'll be honest, I haven't read the book but the movie makes me consider it, but still love the movie-even though the extended cut is still unbuyable, which is very upsetting to me, both versions are good, but the extended version is easier to follow.

      This movie is a horror classic. Like with all King movies, the novel was better, but the movie kept the spirit of the novel. Ed Harris is a great Alan Pangborn. Overall it was a good movie.

      It's a decent Stephen King based movie, and it's a decent presentation of the movie on blu-ray. Nothing stand-out about any of it. It's too expensive at over $10 or $12 in my opinion.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
