Storyline

When he, his son, Billy Drayton, and his neighbor Brent Norton travel to the supermarket, the unthinkable happens. On their way to the market, they see the army, firefighters, and the police heading toward the mist. When he sees this Brent mentions something about "Project Arrowhead", a secret military project that no one knows about. As they are shopping, they see three soldiers walk in, pick up a few things, then head toward the mist. All eighty of the store's shoppers have no clue what is going on until an old man runs in the market with a bloody nose and declares "Something in the mist!" He tells them to close the door. About five seconds after they close the door, the entire store shakes, as though it has been lifted several feet above the ground.

Goofs

When the tree "falls" through the window of the house at the beginning of the film, it comes straight in. The tree was clearly pushed into the window, rather than falling over. See more »

A great horror movie and a great deal more!
20 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most modern horror movie are simply ((insert expletive here)) these days. They either end up as a PG13 (ooh, scary!) or they end up with the hero winking into the camera and riding off into the sunset.

The Mist does none of this. It is scary, violent and follows through to a logical, hardcore horror ending. The last horror film this good was 28 Days Later (kinda) or the Dawn of the Dead redo (for sure).

I don't need spoilers to get across that if you're a horror fan and you want to see a good kick ass R rated horror flick, you've come to the right place. Hell, even my wife thought it kicked ass and she's a stickler for logic in movies.

Just make sure you're not sitting next to any plate glass windows and you'll be fine! Oh, and if you read original novella, like I did, you'll also be pleasantly surprised because THIS movie is true to the story it came from.

Well done Frank Darabont for directing a great Stephen King adaptation ... how about doing The Stand next?
