    The Stand

Disaster:

Virus

Plot Summary:

A security guard becomes infected with a deadly form of the flu virus, engineered and accidentally released at a US government installation. The virus soon spreads across the country killing almost everyone it comes in contact with. A handful of survivors are left. They dream about an old woman, Mother Abigail, who brings the survivors together in order to face the ultimate evil, the devil's imp, who has taken up residence in Las Vegas.

Comments:

The topic is handled extremely well and is entertaining throughout the entire length of the film. The script is well written, the characters are enjoyable and memorable and the aura of doom and hope never let up. You will watch this one over and over again. The only reason it misses out on a perfect score, is that the ending of the film was a little abrupt and no where near as interesting as the rest of the film.
