one of my favorites novels of all time, i periodically get the urge to "go see how stu and frannie are" and now permanently refer to old scratch as "the hardcase"...the stand is deeply my opinion mr kings best 'long novel'...i really got into it..

i loved the stand

The Stand is by far the best book I have ever read. Stephen King is brilliant and the movie is equally great.

The Stand has long been my favorite read, and I still keep a paperback copy by my bedside. This is the best book this 61 year old has EVER read!

I've both read the novel and seen the miniseries; and I have to say that it is my favorite miniseries of all time!!! I was truly surprised to see that the miniseries stayed very close to the novel. I also noticed that may of the small things that happened in the novel were also in the miniseries!!!

Just re-read the book and re-saw the movie. Loved them both. Thanks!

Having read The Stand: Complete & uncut edition first, can't say the movie is one of the greatest Stephen King's movies ever made...though I rather enjoyed myself as I watched it. At least the cast is good, almost as good as I imagined. To say more, for many years I have been a great lover of S.King's masterpieces.

I saw this with my mom on the weekend and I loved it. It was creepy and interesting at the same time. Currently reading Under the Dome can't wait to finish it and start reading The Stand.

I just saw The Stand a little while ago and it was amazing. If the movie was that great then i cant wait to read the book. I am a new fan of Stephen King. I have his book, It. Cant wait to read all of his books.

I absolutely love love love this movie. I could watch this over and over again. A definate masterpiece!

Posted By: Jesseka - September 8th, 2011 4:09:47 pm EDT

I love The Stand. A masterpiece. What more can I say? The book is genius and a work of art. The movie is amazing and I love nothing better than a rainy day that I can watch the entire movie. My daughters are 11 & 12 and know the movie by heart. Some may say they shouldn't watch it but a movie that shows how good always wins is something I want my daughters to know about. LOVE IT!!!

Posted By: Crampedfingers - September 4th, 2011 4:49:37 pm EDT

I've never read another book with the backstory first. Character development is unparalled. The book was great and the movie did not disappoint. Way to go Steve!

Posted By: Joie - August 22nd, 2011 1:23:15 pm EDT

The Greatest Film ever made.I actually went back and read the entire novel just to get to know the characters better, then rewatched the film.It actually made it better, The DVD stays in my player no lie. I Love this movie. I also have Dont fear the Reaper as my ringtone...(because of the movie) Baby can you dig your man was not

one of the greatest Stephen King movies ever made,and book

Posted By: Kimmy - May 20th, 2011 2:05:21 am EDT

oh my jod this hooked me for life, still love to watch this, the most realist movie ever....

Posted By: SKMisery - May 9th, 2011 5:35:01 pm EDT

By far, the best mini-series ever. They could never make the full book into a movie, but I would have loved to have seen "The Kid" pick up Trashcan Man, just to see him panic when Flagg sent the wolves to set him straight. If it is made for the big screen, I hope they include more of the book, and please get someone better to play Frannie. Molly Ringwald is a good actress, but she made Frannie seem too needy and whiny, and in the book, Frannie seems more independent.

Posted By: Tchan - March 22nd, 2011 10:55:43 pm EDT

over all this is a really great movie when you keep in mind this was a MADE FOR TV MOVIE! however, the book is huge and not everything can be put in the movie. if you are one of those obsessed Movie-is-like-book people, then don't get this, but otherwise, this is an amazing film.

Posted By: S.K.Rules - February 2nd, 2011 3:51:19 pm EST

heard on IMDB that The Stand is to get a movie remake if its true i can't wait.

Posted By: S.K.Rules - January 14th, 2011 3:50:51 pm EST

MAY CONTAIN SPIOLERS Just finished watching the stand, took me four days lol. First I want to say that I knew I was in for a long watch when I got the DVD and watched part one, I thought there was a lot of things missing from part one and thought some of the actors weren't so good, but luckily most of the bad actors died in part one and never made it to part two because that's were it gets good (the most annoying one was the girl who plays Fran she was a main character and was the biggest mistake in the series). My favourite characters are nick andros (sad when he died) and Tom Cullen legends. And this was the longest I've seen Stephen act.

This was a really good movie. It's long but it's really good and im 13.
Posted By: Jim - August 22nd, 2010 10:17:45 pm EDT
Loved the book, read it several times,then saw the tv filmette. Half as long, less intresting, and Gary Sinese will haunt Stu Redmonds soul as long as I will live!
Posted By: Anonymous - August 9th, 2010 7:22:16 pm EDT
This book should be made into a movie immediately!
Posted By: Gena - July 28th, 2010 11:31:54 am EDT
I love the movie THE STAND I think it is great it is the only stephen king movie I ever watch however it is a hard one to find.

Loved the movie and the book! Gary Sinise was the perfect Stu Redman!
Posted By: Debby - July 9th, 2010 5:40:43 pm EDT
I love this book. My mother read it once a year for as long as I can remember. It is now one of my favorites. I cannot pick a number 1 favorite, but this one is in my top 10 for sure!
Posted By: SFisher - April 18th, 2010 3:56:51 pm EDT
I saw this movie when it first aired back when i was a freshman in high school. It seemed everyone at school was watching it as well and we would all be talking about it the day after. The casting was fantastic. I used to be apprehensive about Molly Ringwold playing the part of Frannie but she has grown on me over several more viewings. It would be interesting to see this movie re-done and shown on HBO rather than network television. Still, LOVE this version.

You can look on ebay...just took a look and there was 2 copies of it for sale.

Looking everywhere for the DVD "The Stand". Will it be released again. I keep renting the one at the video store. Crappy copy. It is all scratched up.

Lynnr:I just got it on DVD for Christmas. It came with two other movies; The Langoliers and Golden Years. I'm almost positive it was from Amazon.
Posted By: Yue - December 12th, 2009 10:58:18 am EST
i loved the book when i read in my country, its called "the dance of death" in EUA its "the stand" i dunno why
Posted By: Conner - December 5th, 2009 7:24:10 pm EST
To Lynnr: I had to order it on Amazon from someone in Canada. It's sad that a brilliant movie such as this has gone out of print.
Posted By: Lynnr - November 30th, 2009 6:58:00 pm EST
Why isn't The Stand available for purchase anymore, I have been looking and looking for the DVD and can't find it. Thank you.
Posted By: Billie Gladstone - November 8th, 2009 6:30:32 pm EST
I LOVE this book! I first picked it up because a friend recommended it, and have read it five times! It is my fave Stephen King book...will it be re-released on dvd? I am getting the urge to read it again, but would love to watch it on my tv screen. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE re-release it on dvd??????
Posted By: Mary - September 7th, 2009 3:44:23 pm EDT
I have enjoyed most of your works. I hope you keep them coming.
Posted By: Libbi - August 13th, 2009 9:07:46 pm EDT
Does anyone know where the scene was shot in this movie of a small town they stop to rest in and it has a river that runs between the houses? It's really beautiful. I think it's where the old man lived. Please help!!!
Posted By: Nicki - July 9th, 2009 8:54:53 pm EDT

this is one of his best works i thought the movie worked great with the book still plays in the dark reaches of my mind
Posted By: KING JUNKY - March 22nd, 2009 8:35:16 pm EDT
hi all.i saw this when it first came on tv and was blown away by it then.well about 2 yrs ago i found it on dvd and the dvd has a commentary track with all the actors and such but the real gem is steve kings commentary.i think that it still has the power to charm enchant and scare the daylights out of ya peace out
Posted By: Wendy - March 5th, 2009 4:36:23 am EST
Mr. King, I don't know if you heard this before but this particular movie was beyond words to me almost lively prophetic in its on time zone. 2009 versus 1994 and this movie is active in the lives of millions. I give up... speechless. Nothing more to say
Posted By: Jess - February 24th, 2009 1:41:04 am EST
This is a fantastic movie but in Australia it didnt make the jump from VHS to DVD...Its bloody impossible to get your hands on.
Posted By: Bessie - February 3rd, 2009 2:45:08 pm EST
This was one of my all time favorite novels I've read by SK and when I found out there was a movie....I had to see it. It was amazing.
Posted By: Trish - January 28th, 2009 1:05:33 pm EST
this movie was awesome. this morning, my mother and I were talking about this and his other works. M-O-O-N that spells awesome. My hats off to you, Mr.King. I would love to own this movie!
Posted By: Lucy - December 16th, 2008 6:34:43 pm EST
love the movie very hard for me to get in canda.
Posted By: Namerie - November 9th, 2008 10:40:22 am EST
to purchase this movie you have to look on under used movies, i know this because i just bought one on dvd for less than 20.00.
Posted By: Steve - October 23rd, 2008 4:09:12 pm EDT
I love this movie, I only wish they would have put the sick and crazed military officer who was walking around in his underwear and shooting people or the tornado that Nick and Tom experience. Oh well, this movie is still freaking amazing.
Posted By: Jessrae - October 22nd, 2008 3:22:16 am EDT
How can I purchase the stand, that is the only one I am missing movie wise. I have all your recent books except your newest one.
Posted By: Jewels - September 15th, 2008 7:35:48 am EDT
I love this movie and would like to know if and where this can be purchased, everywhere i have looked tells me that it's not available for ordering.
Posted By: Jt - August 27th, 2008 8:20:22 pm EDT
So amazing, this film has influenced me for much of my life!
Posted By: H.G. - August 13th, 2008 3:42:21 pm EDT
