After a deadly plague kills most of the world's population, the remaining survivors split into two groups - one led by a benevolent elder and the other by a maleficent being - to face each other in a final battle between good and evil.
En route to Lake Tahoe for a much anticipated vacation, the Carver family is arrested for blowing out all four tires on their camper. 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. He can also change form and summon the help of creepy creatures, including scorpions, snakes and spiders. Written by

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.
