THE LANGOLIERS

Updated: Apr 21

The Langoliers is a horror miniseries consisting of two episodes of 1½ hours each. It was directed and written by Tom Holland and is based on the novella by Stephen King from the four-part anthology book Four Past Midnight. The series was produced by Mitchell Galin and David R. Kappes and originally aired May 14–15, 1995 on the ABC network.

The movie featured a myriad of TV stars and some of the worst CGI to ever grace the screen, thus receiving some scathing, if not humorous, reviews upon release. Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly gave it a "B" rating, calling it an episode of The Twilight Zone stretched out to four hours, [but] nonetheless does have its moments. TV Guide gave it one out of five stars, calling it tedious and boring, criticizing its "dull" script, "cardboard characters", "ludicrous special effects", and its "dishwatery cast, [with the sole exception of] Pinchot, who rolls his eyes like an alien thespian from the Planet Ham". The book Stephen King Films FAQ mentioned that Bronson Pinchot "chews more scenery than all of the Langoliers put together".
