In a hospital on the outskirts of 1920s Los Angeles, an injured stuntman begins to tell a fellow patient, a little girl with a broken arm, a fantastic story of five mythical heroes. Thanks to his fractured state of mind and her vivid imagination, the line between fiction and reality blurs as the tale advances.
When a government-run lab accidentally lets loose a deadly virus, most of the population of the world is wiped-out. Survivors begin having dreams about two figures: a mystical old woman, or a foreboding, scary man. As the story tracks various people, we begin to realize that the two figures exemplify basic forces of good and evil, and the stage is set for a final confrontation between the representatives of each.

Yes, the movie is rather disappointing after reading the book, but you have to admit they tried...and for 1994 they did a good job. I think that they included all that could be included in a movie because of the fact that most details in the book can't be explained through gestures or images so we'd better appreciate the hard work they've put into it;a script is not an easy thing to do you know,especially when we're talking about a novel.
My opinion is that you can't truly appreciate Stephen King only by watching movies.He's a great horror writer and I strongly recommend reading "The Stand" . It's really cool and the characters are incredibly well built . Besides that, it's pretty realistic too...
