Movie synopsis
Frank Darabont (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE) serves as director, writer, and producer of THE MIST, an adaptation of Stephen King's classic novella. After a vicious storm wreaks havoc in their small town in Maine, artist David Drayton (Thomas Jane) heads out to the town supermarket for some much-needed supplies with his young son, Billy (Nathan Gamble), and his neighbor, Norton (Andre Braugher), in tow. Their trip soon turns to terror when a menacing white mist settles in, leaving this group of locals and out-of-towners fighting for survival against an unknown, bloodthirsty enemy. When the local religious zealot (Marcia Gay Harden) begins to convince the group that the mist is punishment from God, Drayton and his cohorts realize that they may be trapped inside with an enemy just as dangerous as whatever is lurking outside.Tension runs high in this tale as the trapped group faces difficult moral decisions. Should they stay and wait out the terror, or make a break for it and risk suffering a terrible fate? Is the eerie mist the will of God, an experiment from the local military base gone awry, or, maybe, a freak natural disaster? Without modern conveniences and the normal conventions and rules to guide them, the group is easily swayed by the loudest opinion. Will they save themselves at the expense of each other, or work as a team to save everyone? There is a decent amount of blood and gore for horror fans, some deadpan humor and just a hint of politics thrown in for good measure. Thomas Jane is a stoic leading man, but Frances Sternhagen and Toby Jones are more fun as unlikely heroes. Laurie Holden, Alexa Davalos, Bill Sadler and Jeffrey Demunn also star in this creepy tale.

Editorial reviews

"[N]ifty, unusually spry....It's the good people of classic Kingsville, brought to life by an energized cast...show ought to scare the bejesus out of audiences." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (11/23/2007)

"THE MIST is a rare beast: a mature, genuinely intense horror film that takes its improbable subject matter, and hence its audience, seriously."
Sight and Sound - Sight and Sound Critic (07/01/2008)

4 stars out of 5 -- "A tight, tense frightflick with more originality than a thousand SAWs....As with all the best horror movies, THE MIST takes its time setting up its characters and scenario..."
Empire - Chris Hewitt (08/01/2008)

Cool Mist

Review For: Stephen King's The Mist (DVD, 2008, Widescreen)

Had seen it when it was first released and liked it just as much the second time around. The ending is not only a shocker, but one that shifts emotions very quickly. I have seen few movies that capture a loss of hope as well as this climactic ending. In the end, you wonder whose blood needed to be shed to lift the mist? I would have to put this one in my top three Steven King horror movies in regards to suspense.
