Stephen King's the Langoliers/the Stand/Golden Years
This DVD gift set clocks in at over 12 hours and contains three Stephen King made-for-TV films based on his novels. They include:
The Stand -- Originally aired as a television miniseries, this gripping epic of good versus evil chronicles the episodic adventures of a disparate group of people who struggle to reestablish civilization after a man-made catastrophe wipes out most of the world's population. The world abruptly ends when a deadly virus accidentally escapes from a government-sponsored biological warfare laboratory. Soon people are dropping like flies from the plague, but a few survive and find themselves strangely compelled to head into the West. Good-hearted people follow the voice of an ancient woman and head for Boulder, Colorado. Bad people follow the enigmatic Walkin' Dude to Las Vegas. It is only a matter of time before the two sides are forced into a climactic battle over the final fate of humanity.
The mini-series Golden Years centers upon a hapless old janitor who begins undergoing incredible physical changes after he is accidentally covered with experimental chemicals following a laboratory mishap. Now the government will stop at nothing to get him back.
The Langoliers is based on King's short story "Four Past Midnight," in which ten passengers on a red-eye flight from L.A. to Boston awake to find that they are the only people on the plane and, after making an emergency landing in Bangor, Maine, discover that they are the only people on the planet -- and the titular flesh-eating monsters are coming after them.
