Storyline

Loosely related to the author's highly regarded novel The Stand, the brief story follows one evening on a place called Anson Beach, New Hampshire, with a group of teens, survivors of a catastrophic virus called A6, or "Captain Trips", that has wiped out virtually the entire population. The virus was said to have spread out of Southeast Asia. The teenagers are shown to have a rather sinister nature in that they abduct a man and burn him on a pyre, believing such a human sacrifice to their gods would grant them protection against A6. The main character of the story, named Bernie, reflects upon this new world and frequently daydreams about "the time before" when he went to Anson Beach in his younger years before the A6 outbreak. A reference is made to a previous virus called A2, which the teens had all survived, leading them to think they were immune to A6's lethal effect. Toward the end of the story, one of them begins to show symptoms of A6, and they realize that perhaps their exposure...

Pretty good
17 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I have to say I was quite impressed with the directing, music, makeup and especially the introductory credits since they really set the mood.

The stuff that I thought hurt the film was the poor acting from all of the cast, and I couldn't believe them which is why I didn't give this a 10 which it could have earned. Also, I read the story years ago but still remember it pretty clearly - this is a kinda sorta adaptation since the King story is included, but it's a story within the story (his was not all that good to begin with) and it is pretty much covered, but it's too bad it's a passing reference and not better connected to the story since it's supposed to show how they don't care/go mad with "Captain Trips" virus all around them...I'm aware people who haven't read it won't notice but those of us who have will. Nevertheless, the story was watchable and extremely good for a low budget film. Watch out for this director and cinematographer, they will be going places.

Final verdict: On par with the story, so check out both.

Overall: 7/10
