Originally aired as a television mini-series, this all-star filmization of Stephen King's gripping epic of good versus evil chronicles the episodic adventures of a disparate group of people who struggle to reestablish civilization after a man-made catastrophe wipes out most of the world's population. The world abruptly ends when a deadly virus accidentally escapes from a government sponsored biological warfare laboratory. Soon people are dropping like flies from the plague, but a few survive and find themselves strangely compelled to head into the West. Good-hearted people follow the voice of an ancient black woman and head for Boulder, Colorado. Bad people follow the enigmatic Walkin' Dude to Las Vegas. It is only a matter of time before the two sides are forced into a climactic battle over the final fate of humanity. ~ Sandra Brennan, All Movie Guide

The Stand delivers... by Emomovieluver March 4, 2003 - 12:08 PM PST

Once a big fan of Stephen King until his works became too numerous and too long to keep up with, I know full well what King is capable of. This mini-series is prime example of how the man has adapted his writing to be more cinematic since by the time this came out, it was certain most of his works would some day be made into a movie or t.v. mini-series of some kind. The 2nd half of this mini-series seems to movie along at a quicker pace though the first half was much more suspenceful. The many characters are well developed and with a cast like this, you can't go wrong. The main problem here lies in the fact that his lead villian has become a wise-ass, nut-bag dolt. On this disc, look for appearences by Sam Raimi, John Landis and King himself.
