I love Frank Darabont. The Shawshank Redemtion and The Green Mile are two of my all time favourite movies, and needless to say, I was very excited to see him do The Mist.
And I was not disappointed. Darabont's ability to scare without gore, and the mood he creates throughout the film is quite simply astonishing. The cast is perfect, with Thomas Jane in the lead, and Marcia Gay Harden as the religious fanatic. Stunning perfomances!
With the risk of spoiling the experience, I'll refrain from saying too much about the ending. All I can say is "be warned".
Looking forward to the next Darabont adaptation of Stephen Kings works. A shame he won't be doing The Dark Tower.
