STEPHEN KING’S THE MIST (2007) – There’s something about the combination of Frank Darabont and Stephen King that really works. With “The Shawshank Redemption” & “The Green Mile” under Darabont’s belt, I was looking forward to his newest King adaption, “The Mist”, and it exceeded my expectations yet again. Based on the novella of the same name, “The Mist” is horror film about the horrors people will do during dire times. Perhaps a reflection of post-9/11 America if you will. Sure, the monstsers, the creatures, all of those things are terrifying in this film, but it’s the people that drive this movie into the insane horror that it subsequently falls to. Religious nuts will do just about anything to please God, so that they may be saved. Plus, this film has probably one of the best endings to horror film I’ve ever seen, it really sticks it in the gut.
