Based on the Stephen King novella, The Mist tells of an apocalyptic fog which overcomes the United States' eastern seaboard, swallowing everything - and everyone - in its path. Barricading themselves inside a local supermarket, some of the residents of Bridgton, Maine manage to save themselves from the intitial onslaught, but the worst is yet to come...
With the creatures of the mist lurking just outside the building's flimsy glass walls, and a dangerous religious lunatic gathering influence among the stranded townspeople, David Drayton (Thomas Jane), his young son Billy (Nathan Gamble) and a handful of compatriots must survive the threats both outside and in.

Fear Changes Everything
In this legendary tale of terror from master storyteller Stephen King, David Drayton and his young son Billy are among a large group of terrified townspeople trapped in a local grocery store by a strange, otherworldly mist. David is the first to realise that there are things lurking in the mist deadly, horrifying things creatures not of this world.
Survival depends on everybody in the store pulling together but is that possible, given human nature. As reason crumbles in the face of fear and panic, David begins to wonder what terrifies him more the monsters in the mist or the ones inside the store, the human kind, the people that until now had been his friends and neighbours.
if there's one thing i hate in films, it's scenes in supermarkets! ugh! they look so bad and cluttered and the lighting is terrible! and full on 85 damn percent of this film is set in a supermarket!! needless to say i was not impressed with the general visual look (the creatures looked pretty good though). i've rarely hated a character in a film as much as that religious nut job of a woman. people say how shocking the ending is... it came and i was like "is that all? it's just a normal possible ending for a film of this type" -- i simply didn't like it. having said all that, the tension is masterfully created and the film is well paced and acted. it's very "genre"... but i'm guessing it'll be regarded as a very strong example of it's genre -- just not really my kinda thing i guess.
