From the box:
His body held the secret of time. Now time is… running out!
Reigning horror master Stephen King (Misery, Pet Sematary, 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 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 seen… or imagined!
