Storyline

When a deadly virus escapes from a government research facility, few prove to be immune to its effects. With symptoms similar to the flu, those who come into contact with it quickly die. One survivor is Stu Redmond, a gas station attendant from Texas, who suffers no ill effects whatsoever. Kept in a medical research facility in Vermont, doctors try to determine why he is still alive. Others that also survive include Frannie Goldsmith who lives with her dad; Nick Andros, a deaf-mute; a rock musician, Larry Underwood; and Lloyd Henreid, in jail for murder. Survivors begin to have dreams, either about an old Afican-American woman, Mother Abigail, or a much scarier evil man. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

In the book, Randall Flagg is described as having been involved in political activism of various types. He is of indeterminate racial origin, looking like a swarthy man so he has been involved in both the KKK and white supremacism, and black radicalism. In the miniseries he has blue eyes and is clearly Caucasian. He wears a badge saying "How's your Pork?" (a reference to the police). His face is also hidden most of the time, unlike in the miniseries. See more »

Goofs

Though Nick is deaf, he responds to the sound of an owl hooting by turning his head as if startled. See more »

Crazy Credits

The film opens with white words on a black screen: This is the way the world ends/This is the way the world ends/This is the way the world ends/Not with a bang but a whimper. (These four lines are the final stanza from T.S. Eliot's poem "The Hollow Men".) See more »
