The small town of Haven becomes a hot-bed of inventions all run by a strange green power device. The whole town is digging something up in the woods, and only an alcoholic poet can discover... See full summary »
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.
On a red eye flight to Boston from LA 10 people wake up to a shock. All the passengers and crew have vanished. When they try to contact the ground they make no connections. They land the plane only to discover that things haven't changed. But its like the world is dead. No one is there, the air is still, sound doesn't echo, the food is tasteless. And a distant sound is heard coming closer. A race of monstrous beings bent on their destruction is heading for them, eating everything in sight.Written by
The aircraft used in the movie (Lockheed L-1011-385-1 TriStar (Reg No. N31018)), first flew on 10/02/1974, and was delivered to Trans World Airlines on 23/03/1974. Following filming of The Langoliers, the aircraft was re-registered as SE-DSC, and sold to Air Ops of Sweden (delivered 18/03/1995). It was broken up for scrap at Bournemouth, UK, 1996. See more »
When taking off from Bangor Airport to escape the Langoliers the aircraft is shown climbing away from the runway. The Attitude Indicator in the cockpit however clearly shows the aircraft to have been in a dive - nose down, as opposed to a climb - nose up. See more »
As soon as I read the novella "The Langoliers" by Stephen King, I knew it would make an amazing movie. It was by far the scariest piece of writing I have ever read and I was delighted to see that it had already been made into a TV movie. It took me over a year to find a copy, but it was worth it.
People complain about the crappy computer FX and the bad acting, but if you pay attention to the amazing storyline and the logic and thinking that went into this story, you'll find that it is an enjoyable movie that will keep you glued to the screen.
