Returning to Castle Rock in Needful Things, King again sets the stage where "all hell breaks loose and we're off on another horror ride… As always, one is bowled over by Stephen King's… ability to line up vast landscapes of dominoes whose toppling will concatenate catastrophically, and by his sheer inventive energy… Reading him late into the night, you feel the walls closing in" (New York Times). Basis for the 1993 film starring Max von Sydow and Ed Harris.
