THE MIST
2007, The Weinstein Company, 126 min, USA, Dir: Frank Darabont

"The story is less about the monsters outside than about the monsters inside, the people you're stuck with, your friends and neighbors breaking under the strain," noted writer-director Frank Darabont of this muscular sci-fi horror thriller, which features a darker ending than the original Stephen King novella. After a thunderstorm knocks out power in Bridgton, Maine, residents seeking supplies become trapped inside a local supermarket, where a mist conceals deadly creatures from another dimension. With Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden and Andre Braugher.
