Stephen King’s Needful Things (1993) is not a horror movie, per say. More of a thriller-drama. But it is one of our favorites.

The story: Leland Gaunt comes to Sheriff Alan Pangborn’s pleasant little New England town, and opens a store. What this kindly Satan sells is whatever you need, from a surcease from pain to an object which you have always coveted. The Faustian price is, of course, corruption, and soon the poor sheriff’s town is wracked by jealousy, spite, and violence.

What is your favorite scary movie?
