Collie Entragian is the arresting officer, the self-made sheriff of a town called Desperation, Nevada, and the quintessential bad cop. Unbeknownst to the Carvers, Entragian regularly sniffs out passerbys on this stretch of road, and in fact has done in nearly every resident of his hometown.

Stephen King was reportedly annoyed that the ABC Network decided to show the film on the same evening that the popular TV series American Idol aired. King blamed the Networks poor scheduling decision for the disappointing ratings that Desperation received. See more »

I'm a big fan of Stephen King's Desperation (the novel) so I was excited for the cast when it was released. I was not disappointed.
Ron Perlman plays Collie Entragian, a Sheriff's Deputy who, along with the rest of the small town of Desperation, has gone through a considerable change. Now he kidnaps anyone near his middle-of-nowhere town, and locks them in his city filled with the dead. Soon we find that he is no longer Collie, in fact something from below has taken over...
This was a fun movie, very enjoyable. The acting is really good, with Steven Weber, Charles Durning, and Tom Skeritt rounding out the cast besides Perlman. The effects are good as well.
Overall a good TV movie. Enjoy.
