0

Latin Horror In 1978, the world was introduced to the post-apocalyptic novel, ‘The Stand,’ by the well renowned horror author, Stephen King. A story about a virus wiping out humanity, only leaving survivors that will follow either Mother Abagail (The Good) or Randall Flagg (The Bad) to a clash that will determine humanity’s fate. But it wasn’t until the 1990’s uncut edition which shifted the story to the 1980’s that the novel captured a generation of book readers and sold 4.5 million copies.

In 1994, to many of us, ‘The Stand,’ was introduced to us on television. I can recall sitting in my bedroom, adjusting the bunny ears on the TV so I can pick up the ABC channel clearly. The series was a four day event. As a kid it terrified me, especially Randall Flagg and as a lasting impression, till this day, I still say, “M-O-O-N spells MOON!”

Today, Variety released the first look at the limited series, Stephen King’s ‘The Stand.’ Which will be streaming via CBS All Access. There is still no release date but we will let you know when there is. Check out the seven pictures below and let Latin Horror know what you think?
