The good cast is shamefully wasted. You know you're in trouble when the devil starts speaking like one of those wise-cracking, Freddy Kreuger wannabes. Harris tries hard to be the manly hero, but it isn't convincing. The souls of the town seem to be good folk, like Bonnie Bedelia as Harris' fiance, until they come across Von Sydow. J.T. Walsh however, as the town's corrupt assemblyman, seems to be a villain just waiting for a set-up. Some people say that King's novels are unfilmable, but that all depends on the direction, script and acting, and none of those can save this BOMB.
