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

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 »

First off, I would like to say that Desperation is my all-time favorite book. Then I have to say that, this is a terrible adaptation of it. The book focuses on David Carver's connection to God and how it connects to the events going on in Desperation. Personally, I'm completely agnostic but the way the movie portrays Carver's connection to God is not deep enough. In the novel, it's a lot more than just "I'm doing things because God told me to". That is the biggest flaw in the movie. I could go on and on about how the acting is terrible and the script sounds like it was written by a middle schooler and the cheap special effects for TAK, but i'm just gonna leave it at...trust me...read the book, skip the movie
