This is a good Stephen King film although not one of his best.
The film is about a store which opens in the town of Castle Rock and the strange owner who sells the residents things that they think they need. In return he persuades them to perform pranks on their fellow residents which have deadly consequences. The story then battles good over evil with the sheriff trying to save the day.
This film is definately worth a look but it's probably better to rent than buy first.
this is a great little film with some really good performances (max von sydow in particular)and is well worth watching. be warned however, if you have read the book and think it is great, the film is not as good. they never are.
