This along with 28 days later are the best "horror", if you call them horror, movies I have ever seen. But rather than 28 days later, this movie is really close to The Walking Dead. Not only because of multiple actors that appear in both the movie and the show, and Frank Darabont's involvment in both. But rather for the similar themes explored in both. Like The Walking Dead, The Mist uses the "monster", zombies in Walking, the mist and monsters in The Mist, only to set up the background for the plot. The real intention for this movie was to show the people's interactions when put in a dangerous situation. And I do believe this movie was great at that. The real threat for our protagonist, David Drayton (Thomas Jane) and his group are the other people in the supermarket. His son was closer to dying by the hands of a mob in the supermarket rather than by the monsters. And I truly believe this movie, if you take away the monster, is about the true face of human beings. Not to mention was of the best endings I have ever seen.
