The Mist

Frank Darabont has gone back to the Stephen King well again for this cool refreshing drink of water. His previous King adaptations include The Green Mile and the TNT staple, The Shawshank Redemption. Thomas Jane and Marcia Gay Harden lead the great ensemble cast tasked with delivering King's vision of a community torn apart and polarized by fear of the unknown and the inescapable. Movies based on King novels and short-stories always work best when they focus on the characters and the crucible of their situation. Darabont delivers a great Lovecraftian inspired tale that is disturbing, engaging and accessible to even the most jaded movie watcher.
