Movie Summary

Director:
Frank Darabont
Released:
2008
Rating:
R
The Mist is the story of David Drayton (Thomas Jane) and his young son Billy (Nathan Gamble), who are among a large group of terrified townspeople trapped in a local grocery store by a strange, otherworldly mist. David is the first to realize that there are things lurking in the mist...deadly, horrifying things...creatures not of this world. Survival depends on everybody in the store pulling together...but is that possible, given human nature? As reason crumbles in the face of fear and panic, David begins to wonder what terrifies him more: the monsters in the mist-or the ones inside the store, the human kind, the people that until now had been his friends and neighbors? In this legendary tale of terror from master storyteller Stephen King, the thin veneer of civilization is stripped away, the masks are discarded, and the true horror is revealed as us.

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Until the director Frank Darabont decides that he's saying something important instead of making a nifty horror movie, The Mist isn't half bad.

    Variety Justin Chang

    Much nastier and less genteel than his best-known Stephen King adaptations ("The Shawshank Redemption," "The Green Mile"), Frank Darabont's screw-loose doomsday thriller works bett...

    If you have seen ads or trailers suggesting that horrible things pounce on people, and they make you think you want to see this movie, you will be correct. It is a competently made...

  • overall entertaining sci fi thriller

    7.5
    This is a good sci fi movie, the whole movie is suspenseful, the monster effects look great, and the casting is done well. The ending scene is a little hard to swallow, but the rest of the movie is really good.
  • The best cinema adaptation to a Stephen king novel

    If you like horror and suspense, this is a must see movie.

    The end is better than the book and it really shocked me. 10 points !!!!
