The Stand (1994)

The TV mini-series based on Stephen King's The Stand was epic upon release and stands the test of time much better than expected. Full of well-known actors, the series tells the story of the battle between good and evil at the end of the world as we know it, and is pretty much King's most religious offering in a career full of riffs on Christian beliefs and motifs. Of course, the main draw of the series is the character of Randall Flagg a.k.a Walter o'Dim in the Dark Tower universe (here portrayed by Jamey Sheridan) who stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Pennywise as King's best villain.
