Product Description

Horror based on the novella by Stephen King. After a number of people in a small town in Maine are killed by supernatural creatures lurking in a thick fog, a small group of survivors led by artist David Drayton (Thomas Jane) take shelter in a local supermarket. The frightened survivors attempt to discover the origins of the deadly mist, with rumours pointing toward an experiment conducted at a nearby military base. As the world around them slowly descends into a literal hell-on-earth, one of the survivors calls for Old Testament-style sacrifices in order to pacify the malevolent forces.

From Amazon.co.uk

Writer-director Frank Darabont, who showcased the softer side of Stephen King in his film adaptations of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, turns to darker material for The Mist, his latest King adaptation about a group of ordinary townspeople trapped in a supermarket by a mysterious fogbank. Thomas Jane is top-billed as a Maine illustrator who attempts to calm the frightened shoppers, but his job is cut out for him from the get-go, first by the discovery of malevolent creatures lurking in the mist, and then by the mad mutterings of Mrs. Carmody (Marcia Gay Harden), a local eccentric who calls for Old Testament-style sacrifices to appease the supernatural forces. Darabont delivers monster movie thrills and understated social commentary with equal skill, and he's well supported by his cast (which includes Andre Braugher, Toby Jones, William Sadler and Jeffrey DeMunn) and the vivid special effects by KNB EFX, which effectively mix CGI with models and stop-motion animation (the terrific monsters were designed by legendary comic book artist Bernie Wrightson). And for those curious about how the novella's downbeat ending has translated to film, suffice it to say that Darabont's conclusion is at once different and more unsettling than King's. --Paul Gaita

I bought this DVD with a little hesitence due to the somewhat hit and miss history of movie adaptations in the past.The name of Frank Darabont swung me in the end due to his stunning work 'The Green Mile' and 'Shawshank..'.I sat down on a sunday afternoon with a thought of hopefully just being entertained for a couple of hours,as a fan of of thoughtful horror i was not prepared for this at all.I am not going to spoil the plot for inquisitive buyers but suprisingly this got to me on an emotional level thanks to Frank Darabont sticking to his guns about an ending that will stay with me for some time.I beleive this to be a classic in the genre..it certainly makes alot of so called modern horror look frankly hopeless.The feeling that struck me and one which fascinated was the atmosphere of something H.P Lovecraft may have influenced..i enjoy reading his stories and was minded of 'The Call Of Cthulhu'not overtly but in the feeling of where the threat in the film has come from.
As i say no spoilers but the use of Dead Can Dance 'The Host Of Seraphim' in the last few scenes was inspired and heightened the emotional power this builds to.
I hope this will encourage you to view this film.It did not seem to get a well publicised release in the cinemas but dont be put off by this.If a story is more important to you than endless gore(there are some cracking set pieces though)This may be for you.I cant recommend this highly enough.A great piece of work.

I have been a King fan for over 30 years and held back on buying this DVD for quite some time because 'The Mist' (along with 'The Long Walk') happen to be two of my favourite short stories by the author and I didn't want to be let down. What finally changed my mind was knowing that Frank Darabont was directing. Many adaptations of Stephen King stories over the years haven't lived up to expectations but 'The Green Mile' and 'The Shawshank Redemption' have been two of the finest and I hoped this would be number three.

I needn't have worried. 'The Mist' is excellent even if the budget for it appears less than the two previously mentioned films. I thought the cast all acted very well (I note some people feel 'The Religious Lady' irritating), although that is actually meant to be how you feel about her, the Special Effects good (It was nice to see some models and stop motion for a change rather than being force fed rubbish CGI and the screenplay has been tweaked nicely by the Director so as not to be overlong.

Which brings me to the ending. Changing the ending of a book for a film/ TV series adaptation (especially when dealing with Horror or Science Fiction) normally results in either a dumbed down attempt at an upbeat/ happy ending or a cynical attempt to write in a quick teaser for the inevitable sequel. Here the Director has chosen, not only to ignore both of those alternatives, but to actually improve on the original story and deliver one of the most shocking and upsetting endings I have ever watched. Frank Darabont just seems to understand King's written words perfectly which is why I feel his adaptations have always worked. Get the tissues ready.

Wonderful film, which was sadly overlooked as a cinema release, but does seem to be slowly building up quite a reputation on DVD/BD). Have now seen both the B&W and colour versions, and they both have their merits. The fact that you get both here means you can revisit the film 6 months later and watch the other version. The B&W version does hark back to 50s cinema, although the image is too crisp to truly feel retro.
However, the film itself is a wonderful mix of horror and terror, with the horrors without bringing out the horrors within. Well-structured, some great performances, and an ending that is harrowing and doesn't give in to the standard Hollywood cliche.

I won't provide a synopsis as there is already one provided on Amazon.
I got this on US import in a 2 disc edition which contains the original version and a black and white version of the film (Frank Darabont wanted to release it in black and white but the studio was not happy with this idea, "the kids" don't "get" black and white apparently!!)and I would definitely recommend tracking this edition down.The film itself is most definitely a homage to '50's and '60's monster B-movies, and does not take itself too seriously, but is obviously made with great care and love by Darabont. The effects are not top notch, but that really doesn't matter as you find yourself so engrossed in the panic of the characters and their interactions with each other.It has been said many times, but the ending is incredibly, devastatingly bleak, which is a very refreshing change.This is also the best adaptation of a Stephen King horror story since The Shining (which sounds like not much, but I digress). The superb camerawork looks quite astounding on hi def and is definitely worth shelling out the extra for. All in all, superb!!!

this is the third collaberation between stephen king and director frank darabont after the shawshank redemption and the green mile, and is quite frankly, one of the best horror films i've seen in years!
it's tense, well acted, the fact that thomas jane can actually act is a major shock. can this really be the same bland actor who played the punisher??!! but acting honours in this must surely go to the excellent maricia gay harden, who gives an absoultely terrifying performance. an absolute horror masterpiece, and one of the best twist endings since the sixth sense that you just do not see coming. if you're a horror fan, you'll love it!! can't praise this film highly enough.
