Based on the book by Stephen King comes one of the most captivating apocalyptic fantasy tales ever made. The Stand is a dystopian future worth looking forward to.
The latest adaptation of King’s opus will be the biggest yet, paying tribute to his longest stand-alone work. For those unfamiliar, the show depicts a pretty bleak future.
A worldwide plague leads to a monumental battle between good and evil. On one side, a 108-year-old woman named Mother Abigail carries the fate of mankind on her shoulders, along with a handful of survivors. But there’s a yang to every yin. Randal Flagg, aka “The Dark Man” leads the forces of evil, and he’s armed with unspeakable powers. These opposing sides will gather for one final battle to decide whether good will triumph over evil. A stand, if you will.

The Stand Reviews
What the critics are saying:
- “It’s effective TV horror, it’s a recognizable dystopia story, but almost nothing hits as hard as it could.” –Vinnie Mancuso, Collider
- “It’s not perfect by any means, but the series does about as well as anyone might reasonably expect considering the source, and never suffers a boring minute.” –Warren Cantrell, The Playlist
