Review If I didn't know better, judging by the title, I'd say a new horror film called The Mist might just be a throwback to the campy slasher flicks of the early 1980s. It sounds suspiciously like a new name for yet another remake of John Carpenter's classic, The Fog. But The Mist, based on a novella by Stephen King, is neither cheesy nor remade. In fact, it's a very simple title for a complex and intriguing tale that's more about humanity than a bunch of monsters...The Mist transcends normal horror movie conventions and becomes an enlightening study of religion, class, and human nature in the face of tragedy...Writer/director Frank Darabont does a tremendous job building and sustaining the suspense both inside and outside the store. The monsters lurk quietly in the mist, never totally visible until Darabont decides to thrust an attack upon us at the most unanticipated moments...For The Mist, the monsters are only a small part of the larger supporting cast...As the hero, Thomas Jane is a believable everyman with whom we can all identify. He's not overly strong or domineering; he just wants to do the right thing for his family and others. The most frightening character of all may be Harden, whose self-righteous cries for atonement are more piercing and menacing than the savage flesh-eating beasts of the mist.

Review The movie was written and directed by Frank Darabont, whose "The Shawshank Redemption" is currently No. 2 on IMDb's all-time best movies list, and who also made "The Green Mile." Both were based on Stephen King's work, but I think he picked the wrong story this time. What helps, however, is that the budget is adequate to supply the cardboard characters with capable actors and to cobble together some gruesome and slimy special effects...Everyone labors away to bring energy to the cliches, including Toby Jones, who proves that a movie Ollie may have unsuspected resources. Thomas Jane is energetic in the thankless role of the sane leader...If you have seen ads or trailers suggesting that horrible things pounce on people, and they make you think you want to see this movie, you will be correct. It is a competently made Horrible Things Pouncing on People Movie. If you think Frank Darabont has equaled the "Shawshank" and "Green Mile" track record, you will be sadly mistaken. If you want an explanation for the insect monsters (and this is not really giving anything away), there is speculation that they arrived through a rift in the space-time continuum. Rifts in s-t continuums are one of the handiest inventions of science fiction, so now you've got your complete formula: threat to town, group of townspeople and rift.

Quotes
James Berardinelli's ReelViews What a horror film SHOULD be - dark, tense, and punctuated by just enough gore to keep the viewer's flinch reflex intact.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune Good and creepy, "The Mist"...is more the shape, size and quality of the recent "1408"...[than] the "Saw" and "Hostel" franchises.
Pete Hammond, Maxim A masterpiece! One of the most shocking movie endings ever!
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper A wickedly entertaining thrill ride.
Tasha Robinson, The Onion A.V. Club ...one of the scariest King films since Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining."
