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

Goofs

The miniseries starts with a captivating gruesome scene in the research facility, where numerous freshly dead scientists sit, lie, and lean, all apparently fallen in their tracks. But as the Captain Trips virus works like a flu, most of the victims should die over the course of several days in their sick beds, not in the middle of work or daily activities. 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 »
