Critic Reviews of "Needful Things"Georgia StraightJuly 06, 2010
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.sbs.isJune 11, 2007
any movie that has the devil laughing to ave maria must be worth somethingF5 (Wichita, KS)March 09, 2004
Overlong, over-produced Stephen King byproduct. Forget it along with Firestarter, In the Mouth of Madness, Maximum Overdrive, and all the others.Flipside Movie EmporiumMay 18, 2003
Max von Sydow has some good lines, but he delivers them in an utter vacuum.Juicy CerebellumApril 01, 2003
I needed to get out of this thing long before the insipid finale.Apollo GuideFebruary 01, 2003
Save your soul for something more important.MovieholeSeptember 17, 2002
One of Stephen King's better film adaptationsMatinee MagazineJuly 25, 2002
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.eFilmCritic.comJanuary 01, 2000
Pop Needful Things into your player with no particular expectations and you might find it a worthwhile distraction.Deseret News, Salt Lake CityJanuary 01, 2000
Appropriately enough, the film climaxes with a series of huge explosions, each bigger and louder than the one before.
