Needful Things (1993)

3.5 / 5

Genre: Horror

Although not as good as the book yet again, and it's too long (clocking in at 2 hours) it still one of the better King adaptations (good acting goes pretty far here). The story is about a man who comes to a quiet little town and he opens a store (sounds normal enough right?). The thing is he happens to be the devil in disguise, and what he has for sale you don't want! Okay well it does happen to have just the thing each and every person in town wants, but what will the devil want for payment? It's a cute little story anyhow, and it's quite easy to watch, definitely one a horror fan or fan of King should enjoy!
