Fear Changes Everything


Stephen King's The Mist
Set in a small town, a mysterious mist descends upon it, trapping a group of inhabitants inside a supermarket. Once they realise that there are other-worldly ''things'' in the mist, they are loathe to leave the safety of the store. They need to rely on and trust each other to deal with what is outside, but as the situation develops, true colours emerge and the people inside may be more dangerous than whatever is out there...

Roger Ebert quote iconIf 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 Horrible Things Pouncing on People Movie. If you think Frank Darabont has equaled the ''Shawshank'' and ''Green Mile'' track record, you will be sadly mistaken.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe Mist is what a horror film should be - dark, tense, and punctuated by just enough gore to keep the viewer's flinch reflex intact. In fact, that movie's ending is so uncompromising that one must assume director Frank Darabont had final cut so the studio couldn't interfere.

ScreenIt
quote iconThe film can't decide if it wants to play it straight (at least within the parameters of the genre) or go the camp route. The resultant combination often feels like it's battling itself, especially considering the unexpected and certainly un-Hollywood-like ending that Darabont has tacked onto King's original conclusion.
