This six hour movie was made in 1994 from a book by Stephen King that would take even longer to read I imagine (I’d like to make the attempt some day).
A military-engineered flu vectored through the air kills nearly everyone. Only a few are left and these dream two extremes. An elderly black woman (the prophet) living in a corn field or The One who walks alone (the demon). The dreamers have to decide which side they want. In the end a stand must be taken.
King does an interesting job in contrasting good with evil and the difficulty of prophecy. He (only briefly appearing in the Langoliers) has a little more time acting in this one… he’s not bad either.
I enjoyed this, but not as much as the Langoliers.
