A mysterious new shop opens in a small town which always seems to stock the deepest desires of each shopper, with a price far heavier than expected.
Bonnie Bedelia previously appeared in "Salem's Lot (1979)(TV)', which was also based on a 'Stephen King' novel, and was also about a mysterious stranger who moves into a small town and opens an antique shop. That film also featured two actors (James Mason and Clarissa Kaye-Mason) who were a real-life husband and wife, as does this film (Ray McKinnon and Lisa Blount). They also both featured an actor whose spouse appeared in another film featuring the same characters. Julie Cobb appeared in Salem's Lot, which her husband James Cromwell appeared in the remake in 2004. Ed Harris's character previously appeared in The Dark Half (1993), which featured his wife, Amy Madigan.
