The Mist

The Mist ★★½


David Drayton / Thomas Jane
Amanda Dunfrey / Laurie Holden
Ollie Weeks / Toby Jones
Mrs Carmody / Marcia Gay Harden


A father takes his small son on a shopping trip to the local store when a strange mist rolls in full of nasty creatures hiding in it.

All of the shoppers are trapped in the shop as the monsters outside try to find a way in.

A typical, Stephen King story, with little explanation on the phenomena happening outside, but with all of the attention on the odd characters inside of the shop and how they react when put into an impossible situation.

The SPFX are adequate.
It is a slow burner and takes a while to gain its traction.
We have the usual suspects in this,
A bible bashing nut.
A pragmatic lead man.
A pragmatic lead woman.
A thick hick.
An unbeliever as to what's happening outside.

I have to say, the ending was really very cruel!

OK, but not great. you pays your money and takes your choice.
