An average movie

Basically, there was a time when I would go to a video game shop (which is now closed) and I would buy there on a regular basis 5 DVDs for 5 euros and, sometimes, since I would be missing 1 DVD, I would pick up pretty much anything at random just to reach 5 movies. Anyway, following this amazing process, I ended up watching some rather weak movies and this one was definitely one of them. Indeed... read more

The devil in disguise comes to a quiet, peaceful town and opens a store called Needful Things. The store has an item for everyone in town. All the devil asks for in return is a few dirty pranks. Little do they know, that they've sold their souls, and the pranks escalate to murder...

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" This is a somewhat underrated King adaptation. The film's biggest problem is it's bloated runtime. But acting is good, especially from Max Von Sydow as the shopkeeper. It's decent, and worth a look, not the finest in King's cinematography."

Movie Reviews (1101-1150) (50 movies items)

" Based upon one of Stephen King's better novels about a manipulating presence (that seems to be the minion of the Devil) that gets out the worst in people so they can either create havoc or suffer in it. Ed Harris is perfectly cast as the village sheriff who suspect something is wrong and Bonnie Bedelia gets sexual assaulted by this presence and controlled by a medallion leftover from "Cronos". I like the "Omen-inspired" music score and Max von Sydow feels right as the villain. Sadly, the other"
