A mysterious proprietor named Leland Gaunt (Max von Sydow), claiming to be from Akron, Ohio, arrives in the small town of Castle Rock (Stephen King), Maine in a sinister-looking Mercedes-Benz W189 and opens a new antique store called "Needful Things".<ref name="Tribune"></ref> The store sells various items of great personal worth to the residents (some of which, like a pendant that eases pain or a toy which predicts the outcome of Horse racing, are clearly supernatural). Gaunt demands payment both in cash and in small "favors", usually pranks played by his customers on their neighbors. Gaunt's first customer is a boy named Brian Rusk (Shane Meier) who buys a rare baseball card featuring Mickey Mantle in exchange for 95 cents and a prank on his neighbour Wilma Wadlowski Jerzyck (Valri Bromfield).<ref name="intheframe"></ref>
