To have Frank Darabont's name attached to a Stephen King project has so far proven to be a guarantee the film will deliver. "The Shawshank Redemption" & "Green Mile" are both outstanding examples, "The Mist" makes a twist (sorry) and delivers an experience unlike any I had seen before but, as with the two previous titles, is one you'll never forget. I loved the little "Dark Tower" teaser cameo at the start of the film (if you know, you know) and hope that after all of the dust settles it'll be Frank Darabont who is chosen to weave the same epic majesty & magic of real world characters in otherworldly situations that the Tower series demands and that Mr Darabont has shown he is more than capable of creating.
I've only just this minute managed to track down "The Woman In The Room" on YouTube. The film which started the long friendship between the Author and the Director, but I'll watch it tonight, in the dark, alone, with the lights turned off :)
