The Mist basically followed closley to the book written by the famous Steven King. How it opened after a huge storm that caused the main character to have to bring his son and neighbor to a supermarket. But right before he goes, he and his wife notices a very strange sort of fog or "Mist" that was slowly drifting over the lake that was located right in front of their house.
So he goes to the market and after what feels like a earthquake, the horror starts. idmitially a side character is killed. What dissapointed me was that the gore in this movie was totally fake. You get introduced to all these creatures throughout the film, and finnaly in the last 30 to 40 minutes is when you should know all of them.
Also, the wierd lady that kept going on about god probably angered some people because it is against their religion.
It was sad when the protaginist arrived at home to find his wife dead after getting killed by the spider creatures.
What dissapointed me was that he ended up killing all of the characters in the car that he was in to try to escape the mist. He shot the old man and lady, his girlfriend and son. That was not in the book so it disturbed me that they had to get him to kill his own son. Then, he gets out of the car and tries to get the creatures to kill him, only to find that rescue was only a few minutes away.
Overall, I thought it was kind of a maybe movie, with a few good parts in it here in there, but it wasn't the ending everyone wanted.
