I enjoyed both the book (uncut) and the movie. My daughter and I (both
King fans) have read it several times and we both saw the flick first.
As with most movies based on books, there are some differences, mainly
omissions, some of which I think detract from the movie. Other
character contractions (Rita & Nadine, for example) shorten the story
"for TV" but do cut out some vital preliminaries & character
complexities that are important to what follows next.
Are there plans afoot to remake the movie? I would agree with some
comments I've read here about making it longer. They did that with
DUNE, and although I enjoyed the first version, I really liked the
newer, longer version better because it went into more of the sub
Any remake of The Stand should also, in my humble opinion, retain the
religious undertones of the book because that is what all the parts of
the entire story focus toward - the ultimate showdown between Good and
Evil, as it were.
Yes, the fact that Flagg's persona survives is also vital to the story.
Evil endures, and Good must always be vigilant. Anyway, that's my take
If they wanted to simply "complete" the existing version, couldn't they
use computer animations to create images of the original characters and
then just fill in the "missing scenes"? That way the original actors
images could still be used, their revamped parts played using life-like

For me, better than the book
The Stand is not one of my favorite King novels. I thought the original
version was about 300 pages too long and would have benefited by about
that amount being deleted. Then, they go and make it longer.
I am a die-hard King fan. I think he's the best author of our day. His
character development and attention to detail is fantastic. In my
opinion, works like IT, Salem's Lot, Children of the corn, The Shining,
all are better than The Stand. Therefore, I thought that this
movie,with the necessary deletions due to time constraints is actually
better than the book. It does a good job of focusing on the main events
and characters and bringing them to the forefront which I felt the book
didn't always do..
