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. When David is asked to check on the generator, he finds the loading dock door being pushed on by ... Written by mviedirctr354

Trivia

In the opening shot of the film, David is painting in his room. The picture he's drawing is a design from Stephen King's Dark Tower series of the gunslinger Roland, a Clint Eastwood-like character living in a Middle-Earth-like world. Another design in the room is that of the poster of John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). Carpenter also wrote and directed The Fog (1980), which shares obvious themes with The Mist, as well as Christine (1983), an adaptation of a Stephen King novel. See more »

Goofs

When Sally is attacked by the flying bug, she is stung on the left side of her neck. Moments later, when her throat swells up, the sting wound is on the right side of her neck. See more »

Hey Honey, Have you MIST me?
5 April 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I'm a normal guy, watching movies. And never, EVER have I stumbled upon a movie anything like this. I watch about 20 - 25 movies a month and this month, has been special. This is a spectacular movie, it contains almost everything from comedy to really emotionally powerful scenes. Stephen King is really a genius when it comes to this kind of books/movies.

The music used in this movie fits the situations extremely well and I've got to say, I'm completely baffled. Even today, when I hear music remotely close to what used to the end of this movie, it gets me thinking. People have said it before, and I will say it again. This movie is something you have to watch at least one time in your life.

Thanks for reading my comment :P
