Stephen King's The Mist (Blu-ray Disc, 2008, 2-Disc Set)

Frank Darabont, Thomas Jane, Laurie Holden|Theatrical release: 2007 | Rating: R (MPAA)

Movie synopsis

Frank Darabont (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, THE GREEN MILE) serves as director, writer, and producer of THE MIST, an adaptation of Stephen King's classic novella. After a vicious storm wreaks havoc in their small town in Maine, artist David Drayton (Thomas Jane) heads out to the town supermarket for some much-needed supplies with his young son, Billy (Nathan Gamble), and his neighbor, Norton (Andre Braugher), in tow. Their trip soon turns to terror when a menacing white mist settles in, leaving this group of locals and out-of-towners fighting for survival against an unknown, bloodthirsty enemy. When the local religious zealot (Marcia Gay Harden) begins to convince the group that the mist is punishment from God, Drayton and his cohorts realize that they may be trapped inside with an enemy just as dangerous as whatever is lurking outside.Tension runs high in this tale as the trapped group faces difficult moral decisions. Should they stay and wait out the terror, or make a break for it and risk suffering a terrible fate? Is the eerie mist the will of God, an experiment from the local military base gone awry, or, maybe, a freak natural disaster? Without modern conveniences and the normal conventions and rules to guide them, the group is easily swayed by the loudest opinion. Will they save themselves at the expense of each other, or work as a team to save everyone? There is a decent amount of blood and gore for horror fans, some deadpan humor and just a hint of politics thrown in for good measure. Thomas Jane is a stoic leading man, but Frances Sternhagen and Toby Jones are more fun as unlikely heroes. Laurie Holden, Alexa Davalos, Bill Sadler and Jeffrey Demunn also star in this creepy tale.

Editorial reviews

"[N]ifty, unusually spry....It's the good people of classic Kingsville, brought to life by an energized cast...show ought to scare the bejesus out of audiences." -- Grade: B+
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (11/23/2007)

"THE MIST is a rare beast: a mature, genuinely intense horror film that takes its improbable subject matter, and hence its audience, seriously."
Sight and Sound - Sight and Sound Critic (07/01/2008)

4 stars out of 5 -- "A tight, tense frightflick with more originality than a thousand SAWs....As with all the best horror movies, THE MIST takes its time setting up its characters and scenario..."
Empire - Chris Hewitt (08/01/2008)

Better then the Stephen King story.

Created: 26/04/10
After a bad storm that puts a tree through his studio window, David Drayton (Jane), his son Billy (Gamble), and neighbor Brent (Braugher) head into town to get some supplies from the supermarket. Once there, the mist that they saw rolling across the lake has made it into town and engulfs the store. The terror level is upped when a man runs into the store with blood on his face, screaming that there is something out there. Indeed, there is, and soon those trapped in the store see what it is. To make matters worse, a religious fanatic by the name of Mrs. Carmody (Harden) is stirring up some of the customers with her talk of the end of the world. David finds himself looked to for guidance, and when things seem to be as bad as they can be, things get worse.

Director Frank Darabont takes another stab at a Stephen King story, this time a horror story, and succeeds quite well. Like "The Shawshank Redemprion" and "The Green Mile", "The Mist" is a faithful adaptation of the source material, with an added on ending that may or may not work for viewers. I, for one, enjoy endings of this nature, but am not sure that it was the right ending to tack on the end of this particular story. The acting is solid all around, especially Marcia Gay Harden as the disturbing Mrs. Carmody. The film has its share of monsters, but the scariest ones are inside the store, not outside it. "The Mist" works because it is a smart thriller, directed by an excellent director. I recommend this film.

The blu ray picture quality is outstanding.

The Mist is a great flick.

Tons of suspense.

Great special effects.

Twists and turns.

I love it.

And on Blu-Ray it doesn't get any better.

The 2-disc collector's edition comes with a black-and-white version of the film, which begins with a brief commentary from the director. This version is definitely superior to the colored version since it heightens one's sensitivity to the horrific ambiance in the "Mist".
