Three-time Oscar®-nominee Frank Darabont (The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption) reunites with horror-master Stephen King to write and direct this chilling adaptation of the author's original short story, The Mist.

Following a violent thunderstorm, artist David Drayton and a small town community come under vicious attack from creatures prowling in a thick and unnatural mist. Local rumors point to an experiment called the 'The Arrowhead Project' conducted at a nearby top-secret military base, but questions as to the origins of the deadly vapor are secondary to the group's overall chances for survival.

 Brilliant!

I cant believe the last 3 reviews, did you actually watch The Mist? This is one of my all time favourite films, i know everyone's different and it does'nt often bother me when people slag things off but i had to defend this film.
First thing, the acting's brilliant and the tension is cranked up. The fx are cool and creepy (the acid-webbed spiders especially) It's very similar to the short King story, apart from the brilliant thought provoking ending!
I know i cant make people like this film, i just think it deserves better than some of the reviews on here

 Gobsmacking brilliant!

 Deep, Existential Horror

Based on Stephen King's novella (albeit with some significant changes) this is gritty, powerful horror at its very best.

Focusing more on the characters € particularly their differing personalities and moral codes € this is an intimate, credible and very realistic tale of terror. The fantastic elements within the story are played down in favour of presenting the reactions of the characters to the formless supernatural threat of The Mist, but this helps the film as it makes it far more than some bog-standard creep-show and lets it enter the realm of true horror.

The plot revolves around the difficult decisions that need to made, often far from unanimously, and the (often disastrous) consequences of these choices. This all adds to the film's nail-biting tension that climbs steadily from the very first scene.

In short this is another superb King adaptation from the estimable Mr Darabont, made all the more satisfying for King fans (despite the altered ending) due to the subtle pictorial reference to the Dark Tower series at the beginning of the film.

 Unpreditable, dramatic monster movie - shocking ending!

I bought this film because I'm a fan of Frank Darabont, a big fan of Stephen King and a massive horror/monster movie fan. This is a great example of all afore mentioned.

I expected pretty much just a good monster movie, instead I got lots of character building and sub-plots and subsequently a whole lot of DRAMA as well as thrills and monsters. I got what I was expecting, some terrific monsters and blood, but more depth and sophistication than what I was expecting - which was a glorified B-movie.

Quite unpredictable, tense and thrilling with such drama you won't believe until you watch it and one of the best (and unpredictable) endings you'll ever see (so powerful)! A must-see, great fun and not what you'd expect, on many levels!

 A 'must see'.

Once again the creative teaming of King and Darabont proves to be a winner. This film will appeal to non-horror fans as well as genre enthusiasts. A cross between 'Night of the Living Dead' and the mythology of H.P. Lovecraft, 'The Mist' keeps the viewer on the edge of their seat.
The acting is suitably low key with a realism that helps draw the viewer into the more fantastical elements of the narrative, the U.K.'s Toby Jones is terrific! The score is used sparsely which only adds to the dramatic tension while the lack of flashy camera work keeps the viewers imagination firmly rooted in the story.
This film oozes craftsmanship, and is proof (if any were needed) that you can't beat a good story and quality writing.
