Buy Now. Pay Later. A fantastic film!!!!!, 30 Aug. 2003
On reading the book which is one of King's very best it is clear to see that the film has considerable potential which isn't quite met. However it is a great effort with a great performance from Max Von Sydow (Leland Gaunt). It tells the story of a new shopkeeper who comes into town and opens a shop that has something for everyone. However Gaunt is not as nice as he seems and has an alterear motive and begins an evil mission against the town. A fantastic film which is thoroughly entertainig but not as scary as the book.
