The Mist is possibly one of the best movies I have seen in my short life. The story is great, and I was happy to discover the director hadn't changed much of the book-version. Stephen King is one of the best writers alive. My mother always sais it's good he started writing, otherwise he would've become a serial killer or something else hidious. Watching the movie almost made me weep, because when the end was near, you'd expect the last people, who you have come to love, to stay alive. It was a shame to discover the plot of the movie was nothing like that. The term 'happily ever after' died.
