Overview
Welcome to Castle Rock, Maine, a lovely place to live...if you don't mind selling your soul! Oscar® nominees* Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind) and Max Von Sydow (Minority Report) head an exceptional cast – including Bonnie Bedelia (Die Hard) and Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction) – in this supernatural thriller that's dark, haunting and "a hell of a good scare" (Los Angeles)!

Sheriff Alan Pangborn (Harris) has a devil of a problem: Suddenly all the residents of his sleepy little town are dying...to kill each other. But at least business is still booming, especially at a new antique store. The shop's mysterious owner (Von Sydow) has something for everyone, and his prices are always reasonable: just one small favor...oh, and, of course, eternal damnation!

*Harris: Actor, Pollock (2000); Supporting Actor, The Truman Show (1998); Supporting Actor, Apollo 13 (1995). Von Sydow: Actor, Pelle the Conqueror (1988).
