Stephen King's The Stand

Mick Garris Verenigde Staten, 1994

Subterranean Cinema's rating of the film The Stand

One of my very favorite fiction books of all time was turned into one of the worst film adaptions of all time, a watered down TV movie that is so sanctimonious that it could have been produced for the Trinity Broadcasting Network. Apparently there are plans to create a new theatrical version, and I hope they do it right this time. Rule #1 of a Stephen King film adaption: keep King as far away from it as possible.
