The Stand is a classic tale of good vs. evil, loss weighed against redemption and despair pitted against hope. It is an apocalyptic vision of man's battle to save life against a worldwide plague of death. When the viral strain dubbed "Captain Trips" works its way across the face of the country, the painfully few survivors are launched into a nightmare that's only just begun - but for the Dark Man, Randall Flagg, it's a dream come true. Based on the masterpiece of apocalyptic horror by celebrated author Stephen King, this lavish adaptation is packed with extras in a two-volume slipcased set
