Reigning horror master Stephen King (Misery, Pet Semetary, The Shining) creates a chilling vision of scientific progress run amok in this electrifying, original techno-thriller! Starring Keith Szarabajka (Missing, "The Equalizer) and Frances Sternhagen (Misery, Doc Hollywood), Golden Years features make-up and special effects supervised by the legendary effects master Dick Smith (The Exorcist, Amadeus) and a plot that builds to an astonishing ending. When aging janitor Harlan Williams is accidentally exposed to exotic chemicals in a lab explosion, he undergoes an extraordinary change. It’s a process the government will do anything to learn more about - no matter who has to die in the process. Soon, Harlan, his wife Gina and the lab’s beautiful security chief are on a cross-country race to evade a murderously effective federal agent. But even as he stays one step ahead of his ruthless pursuers, Harlan continues his transformation into something the world of science has never see…or imagined!
