Stephen King’s The Stand was a runaway bestseller at the time of its publication, and later spawned a hit TV miniseries. The Stand is King’s frightening tale of a deadly plague that divides the U.S. into factions of good vs. supernatural evil, sane vs. insane, and everyday heroes vs. psychopathic, murderous villains.
It all begins here: the epic apocalyptic battle between good and evil. On a secret army base in the Californian desert, something has gone horribly, terribly wrong.
Something will send Charlie Campion, his wife and daughter fleeing in the middle of the night.
Unfortunately for the Campion family, and the rest of America, they are unaware that all three of them are carrying a deadly cargo: a virus that will spread from person to person like wildfire, triggering a massive wave of disease and death, prefacing humanity’s last stand.
The Trashcan Man was spared for a reason. To join the Dark Man Randall Flagg’s swelling army and to set the world on fire.
It’s a dream come true for the pyromaniac, but he has to reach Flagg’s compound in Las Vegas first–and, somehow, survive crossing paths with “the Kid,” a hardcase who’s even crazier and more dangerous than Trashy is!
The villains are front-and-center as we cross the mid-point of this epic adaptation of Stephen King’s horror masterpiece!
