The Stand

I've read the book -the original version of it, anyway- and I've seen The Stand before. It's a 1994 mini-series based on the Stephen King novel. Last week we watched the whole thing in one sitting. One could never call it subtle, but it's fun.

here are the first few minutes:

Mutant Reviewers calls it "excellent". EW likes it and says, "The Stand isn't so much a horror tale as it is an epic fantasy with the kitchen sink tossed in." DVD Talk concludes their review with this:
I loved this damned movie! I loved the damned book! Most of all, I loved the damned DVD! This is one of the scariest movies ever made.
It won some awards.
