Don’t fear the reaper and watch the First Trailer for the TV remake of Stephen King‘s The Stand. Good versus evil will return just before Christmas as CBS Access All Areas reveals a creepy short Trailer that will get under your skin.
Six months into a global pandemic with no end in sight, who would think the book Stephen King wrote 42 years ago would resonate in 2020!? Some would say we’re living the pages of King’s post apocalyptic novel.

The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg) and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgard) the Dark Man.
