On a redeye flight to Boston from Los Angeles, 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 it's like the world is dead. Nobody's there, the air is still, sound doesn't echo, the food is tasteless, and a distant sound comes closer and closer. A race of monstrous beings bent on their destruction is heading for them, eating everything in sight.Written by
I finally watched this mini-series last night expecting the worst, but I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, the digital TV effects circa 1995 look very cheesy now, but if you can get past that, you'll enjoy one of the most faithful King adaptations I've seen. One thing seriously bothers me, though. I also recently saw ROSE RED and it was horrendous. It was several hours too long, very borrowed from various other sources, and pretty much a bust altogether. It was Stephen King at his absolute worst. How is it that something as involving and edge-of-your-seat as THE LANGOLIERS gets a lower rating on this site than ROSE RED?
