2007 M Contains violence, offensive language and horror.

Belief divides them, mystery surrounds them, but fear changes everything

In this legendary tale of terror from master storyteller Stephen King, David Drayton and his young son Billy are among a large group of terrified townspeople trapped in a local grocery store by a strange, otherworldly mist. David is the first to realize that there are things lurking in the mist... deadly, horrifying things... creatures not of this world.

Survival depends on everybody in the store pulling together... but is that possible, given human nature? As reason crumbles in the face of fear and panic, David begins to wonder what terrifies him more: the monsters in the mist - or the ones inside the store, the human kind, the people that until now had been his friends and neighbours?

    What started off as a passable adaptation of one of my favourite Stephen King stories was tipped over into full-blown horror by the bleak, gut-wrenching ending (which has been changed substantially from the book). Recommended.

    Starts out with real interest, then sort of dissolves into a bland social study with very stereotyped characters playing out against one another. The ending tries to be different yet somehow seems very... Read more

    I'm not a Stephen King fan but really enjoyed this movie, especially the way cliques formed under pressure and the unusual ending. Tension is built from the interactions between the characters rather... Read more

    Not one of the best adaptations of a King story. It really wasn't all that scary and sometimes the characters were just frustrating in their stupidity. A must see if you are King fan but otherwise nothing special.

    I loved it! The ending wasn't your typical ending where everyone gets out alive, it was awesome! Worth 5 stars in my book. I am a fan of Stephen King and have been for years!

    Bad. Cruddy special effects detracted from the horror of the monsters when out of the mist. Far too much time was wasted on a 2-bit lunatic preacher subplot. The characters in the movie lack common... Read more

    re connected with stephen kings obsession with the supernatural & spiders. Ending was unexpected and sad. very well done.

    Very good in parts and very typically Stephen King. The religious elements were well executed and the leads were likeable. The ending blew my mind completely.
