By the end of the film, I couldn't have cared less if the town's entire population had been dragged down to Lucifer's fiery abode.

Overlong, over-produced Stephen King byproduct. Forget it along with Firestarter, In the Mouth of Madness, Maximum Overdrive, and all the others.
| Original Score: 1/5

Max von Sydow has some good lines, but he delivers them in an utter vacuum.

I needed to get out of this thing long before the insipid finale.

One of Stephen King's better film adaptations

A fine adaptation of one of Stephen King's best novels, it almost manages to surpass the book solely on the strength of Von Sydow's glowering villainy.
| Original Score: 3/5

Pop Needful Things into your player with no particular expectations and you might find it a worthwhile distraction.

Appropriately enough, the film climaxes with a series of huge explosions, each bigger and louder than the one before.
