A man who own a novelty gift shop is famed for offering his produce at cheap prices as long as the buyer performs a prank on a local. When the sheriff begins to investigate he discovers that the old man is actually the devil in disguise and that the pranks are with the intent of the locals murdering each other.
The problem with Stephen King adaptation's is that for every The Shining, there is in invariably a Pet Semetary. This manages to fall somewhere in between with a promising idea that could have been dealt with better. Instead the director takes it too far and consequently you have to totally switch off to let yourself enjoy it.
