Shooting for CBS All Access’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand is well under way in Vancouver this week, and apparently the city government warned folks that it was going to get graphic in Gastown–the city’s oldest neighborhood.
Naturally, locals showed up to see what the fuss was all about and they were not totally disappointed, though most of the fuss seemed to be over an animal rather than the people. Online publication, Vancouver is Awesome, posted a bevy of photos that made their way onto Instagram and Twitter, several of which centered on a “dead horse” prop that was being used in the neighborhood which is standing in for New York City.

The Stand is a post-apocalyptic story set in the U.S. after it has been decimated by a manufactured superflu commonly known as Captain Trips. As survivors attempt to find their way again, they find themselves drawn to one of two camps.
The “good” people make their way to Mother Abigail (Whoopi Goldberg) and the “bad” are drawn to a dark man named Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgard).
The 10 episode series will stream exclusively on CBS All Access upon its completion.
