Mock dead bodies, horse litter Vancouver streets in graphic Stephen King film shoot (PHOTOS)

Nov 4 2019, 2:22 pm

Over the past weekend, downtown Vancouver was once again transformed into post-apocalyptic New York for the filming of Stephen King’s The Stand.

The soon-to-be miniseries is based on King’s 1978 horror novel that features a post-apocalyptic world where 99% of the population is wiped out.

The City of Vancouver shared a warning on social media for a second consecutive week, explaining that filming would take place in Gastown with “highly visible graphic content” such as “mock dead bodies, a mock dead police horse, trash, and debris.”

Many Vancouverites caught part of the action, capturing and sharing photos of the horrific scenes on social media.

Make sure to keep an eye out for any other gruesome makeovers.
