Synopsis / Plot
Leland Gaunt opens an antique and curio shop in the small town of Castle Rock, Maine. Among his stock, each of Gaunt’s customers discover something that is their most desired object or brings back precious memories. In return for selling each item, Gaunt asks that the purchaser play a small, seemingly harmless practical joke on another townsperson. But each of the practical jokes is such that it digs deep into the receiver’s dark secrets and inflames situations to the point that every townsperson is soon ready to kill one another. Slowly, town sheriff Alan Pangborn comes to the realization that Gaunt is The Devil... Based on a Stephen King's novel.
