The Mist – Based on a story by Stephen King – was just insane. This movie took turns i never thought it would take. I didn’t even expect most of the spins from Stephen King. That tells me something. It tells me that this movie brought something new. Twists and turns you would really not expect from new horror movies.
The first thing i would like to talk about is Marcia Gay Harden’s character. Wow. What an evil woman. Watching her preach like she does in this movie, makes your skin crawl. I wanted to throw my monitor out of the window while she went on and on about God and how the others brought this disaster upon them. Her shutting up was the greatest relief i have ever felt in my entire life. You will enjoy the movie much more when shes not talking.
The next thing i would like to hit on is how different this movie was than i thought it would be. I figured it would bring the typical scary creature bug movie. Well if that is what your looking for in this movie, you have lucked out. The decisions made in this movie will cause you to question your ability to even think. Well played i must say. The movie really got me thinking towards the end, trying to guess what would happen next. At that point, anything could had happened. And something DID happen. And it happened good. Trust me you will know what i mean when you watch the movie.
I recommend this movie to anyone that is able to go see it. Straight forward, i thought it was amazing – and surprising. Other than the want to shoot yourself during Marcia Gay Harden’s ramblings, it was a fantastic film and i suggest everyone goes to see it.
