Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Max von Sydow has some good lines, but he delivers them in an utter vacuum."
‑ Rob Vaux, Flipside Movie Emporium
"One of Stephen King's better film adaptations"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Pop Needful Things into your player with no particular expectations and you might find it a worthwhile distraction."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"any movie that has the devil laughing to ave maria must be worth something"
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson, sbs.is
"I needed to get out of this thing long before the insipid finale."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"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."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Overlong, over-produced Stephen King byproduct. Forget it along with Firestarter, In the Mouth of Madness, Maximum Overdrive, and all the others."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"Save your soul for something more important."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Appropriately enough, the film climaxes with a series of huge explosions, each bigger and louder than the one before."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
