The Mist

The Mist ★★★★★

I'm gearing myself up for a trip to the Cameo to see Mad Max: Fury Road Black + Chrome edition and thought it would be worth seeing another film that is supposedly hugely improved by being in black and white.

The one issue I always had with The Mist was the slightly ropey CG effects and somehow they are remarkably improved when the film is in black and white. Second it feels so much more like a 60s horror in black and white. I'd say it would make a fantastic double bill with the original Night of the Living Dead.

I adore the ending. Watching it again makes it even more tragic. So much is built into that ending. The way no one helps the mother at the start and she pops up at the end completely fine. Them all hearing the sound of the flamethrowers and thinking its a monster.

I think it's fair to say that the only person who should be allowed to make Stephen King films is Frank Darabont.
