The latest adaptation of Stephen King's The Stand will finally premiere this December and we now have the first teaser for the highly anticipated horror series. Not surprisingly, the teaser reveals just a glimpse at Randall Flagg's terrifying powers.

The teaser opens with Frannie Goldsmith finding her way through a cornfield where she encounters Mother Abagail, who tells Frannie to come to see her at a safe place. However, things aren't quite as easy for the rest of the survivors. Some struggle to find other people while others yet are still suffering from the effects of the disease that caused the demise of mankind.

Although there is hope with the appearance of Mother Abagail, there is also fear at the other side of the spectrum. Near the end of the teaser, we get a brief look at the Dark Man as he levitates like an angel. However, there is nothing angelic about Randall Flagg.
