Storyline

En route to Lake Tahoe for a much anticipated vacation, the Carver family is arrested for blowing out all four tires on their camper. Collie Entragian is the arresting officer, the self-made sheriff of a town called Desperation, Nevada, and the quintessential bad cop. Unbeknownst to the Carvers, Entragian regularly sniffs out passerbys on this stretch of road, and in fact has done in nearly every resident of his hometown. He can also change form and summon the help of creepy creatures, including scorpions, snakes and spiders.

«Desperation» is Stephen King's television movie adaptation of his own novel of the same name, which was filmed in 2004 and broadcast in 2006. In this TV adaptation of Stephen King's book, Ron Perlman (HELLBOY) plays Collie Entragian, a possessed cop in the desolate town of Desperation. A self-appointed authority in this tiny bend in the road, Entragian arrests an entire family in one night, as well as four other people passing through, and throws them in jail. Gradually, it emerges that the policeman is in need of bodies to contain the evil demon that now occupies him, and that the only hope for the captives lies in the strange powers of a little boy. «Desperation» is directed by frequent King collaborator Mick Garris and stars Ron Perlman as Collie Entragian, Tom Skerritt, Steven Weber and Annabeth Gish.
