    Synopsis


    Stephen King's The Mist
    Frequent Stephen King collaborator Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption) teamed with the celebrated horror author once again for this tale of terror concerning a small town engulfed by a malevolent mist, based on a story originally published in King's 1985 horror anthology Skeleton Crew. When a thick fog descends upon a rural community and claims the lives of anyone unfortunate enough to be caught outside, a small band of survivors seeks refuge in a local grocery store. Now trapped in a darkened cloud of pure horror, the frightened denizens of the town are forced to fend off an advancing horde of murderous monsters. Punisher star Thomas Jane heads up an ensemble cast that includes Andre Braugher, Laurie Holden, William Sadler, and Marcia Gay Harden. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      50's style Horror-Scifi

      If you were raised back in the day when Creature Feature was prevalent on public TV, then you will agree " The Mist " parallels the old 50's style monster movies. The story, acting and FX were quite good, with some very good performances from the cast. synopsis - David Drayton (Thomas Jane) is an artist living with his wife and son in small town, USA. Following a terrible thunderstorm that knocks out the power and uproots a decades-old tree that falls through the home, David, his son Billy (Nathan Gamble), and next door neighbor with whom David is at-odds, Brent (Andre Braugher), head to the local Supermarket to pick up a few supply's, during the shopping spree an unusual fog comes rolling in on the town. At this point terror ensues as people in the parking area begin to scream in terror... Something is terribly wrong in the mist! The survivors hold up inside the market, only to find, the biggest danger is a pseudo holy roller preaching that the mist is a result of Gods anger and creates havoc by turning the survivors against one another. In the final moments escaping survivors give the viewer an ending that is as shocking as it is controversial. video - 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode (2.40:1) ratio. This is a very fine transfer to Blu-ray on a BD-50 dual-layer disc. The black and white version is supplied on a BD-25 single layer disc. Colors are true to life with clarity and good definition with no filtering noted grain is minimal. audio - presented in Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround (48khz/24-bit) this is a very solid encode into hidef with good use of satellites. Discrete effects are effective in the rear zones. Mark Isham's score sounds fantastically creepy and Dialogue is clean and intelligible, without surging. extra's - All are presented in hidef which is the way it should be, even the trailer. commentary by Frank Darabont - When Darkness Came: The Making of The Mist - Featurettes (Monsters Among Us: A Look at the Creature F/X) - Deleted Scenes - Theatrical Trailers HD.. If you enjoy good horror movies like I do, I think you will really enjoy this rare treasure in the Scifi/Horror Genre..

      Great Movie, Bad Blu-ray

      Posted
      Alexfillmfreak

      In my honest opinion, i feel that "the mist" is one of the finer adaptations of King's works. The characters and plot pacing were spot on, and the ending is one of my favorites. i waited to see the movie for quite some time wondering if it was going to be another big hollywood trashing of King's works. i was more than pleasantly surprised at the time and care made by the same fine director responsible for "the green mile" and "the shawshank redemption." the first thing i did when i bought the blu ray edition was to watch the movie in black and white by the way reminds me of a great episode of "the outer limits" (a big compliment there, mind you.) when i finally purchased a blu ray player i was excited to see all the finer details offered by this technology. every movie i bought up to that moment looked sharp and sounded better than most movie theaters. when i bought my blu ray edition of this movie i was shocked to find that my player could not access any of the extras boasted on the box and the menus on both discs! at first i thought that there was a defective disc and that an exchange for another would help remedy the matter. i exchanged it and the SAME results happened. i decided to just keep the movie and just watch the films (thank goodness the commentary track worked!) by themselves. this does not mean im no longer going to buy anymore blu rays, im just not going to go to the trouble of exchanging dvds that dont work! All in all, Great Movie, BAD Blu-ray!

      The Missed

      Posted
      TheCount

      Superb DVD picture and audio quality (which would be expected). The fact that the B&W version is also presented here is a great bonus. The movie itself fell short of my expectations. It took a long time to build up and the suspense peaked way before the climax leaving me feeling a bit bored in the interim. *SPOILER (sort of)* The ending is what did it for me. I hate the ending of this movie. It is not Stephen King's original ending yet he gave it his seal of approval I understand. I fully accept that in these kinds of films, a happy, warm, and fuzzy ending does not always take place. However, the ending had been built up as one of the most disturbing film endings ever. And it is disturbing, but mostly in that it is so idiotic and quite out of character. I felt completely let down by this cheesy ending and all I could do was utter, "oh come on, that was so stupid." For those of you who'll know what I mean here, the ending to The Village is better. In closing, your two hours would be better spent on many other superior films. I'll recommend this with caution. I think watching it in B&W is fun, but don't say I didn't at least try to warn you about the silly ending.

      Ok let me start by saying at first i wasn't sure i should buy this blu-ray because i already have the DVD special edition and someone told me they had problems with the menus and special features not working....But i'm glad i decided to get it because it works perfectly on my SONY BDP-N460 BLU-RAY PLAYER...THATS NEVER BEEN FIRMWARE UPDATED.... and i mean perfectly ! this movie is really cool on dvd and taken to total perfection on blu-ray the special features are great as well and i really like director frank darabonts commentary track. all in all this is a great outer limits type movie experience with thomas jane leading the way...if i have one gripe about this film is that i didn't like the ending that much but i can see how it works for the film. if it wasn't for the ending i would be giving this film a 100% perfect score this movie is definately worth getting on blu-ray it's extremely well done and well acted you can tell everyone involved gave everything a 100% effort 100% of the time i'm proud to have the mist in my blu-ray collection t's more than worth the purchase price

      best stephen king movie

      Posted
      mpikek

      thomas jane is great as an artist with a family who strugles through this epidimic. as soon as they all get trapped in the store, its a fun, haunting thrill ride from there on. and when i put the ending under the pros catagory, its cuz i like endings like that. its really horrible and depressing. i not giving anything away though. everybody does a great job in this near masterpiece from a stephen king book. i would even go ad far as saying its better than 1408. and 1408 was great. this movie is just so well done and you can tell that everyone had fun making it. and another surprise, its not a cheesy or campy movie in any way. sure it might be a little cliched but the movie itself even admits it. in the begining, some peolple of course dont believe thomas jane when they get trapped in the store, so they go to the loading dock of the store and look for themselves. one thing leads to another and the stupid teenager gets dragged away. but its not really a problem cuz it so well done and everyone is playing it straight. including the unstable spiratual crazy lady and thinks shes gods gift to earth and recruits half the store. overall, i loved it and you will too.

      I loved the story when I read it so many years ago - It was one that I wanted to see on the big screen! Darabont has got BIG brass ones, and proves it with the ending. Thomas Jane - Stud Laurie Holden - never a bad choice in my book Marcia Gay Harden - Great actress, but I don't like the character she played. I don't care for the way Christians are portrayed in movies. Loving Christ doesn't make you a religious nut! The Mist - You'll never look at mist/fog the same way again! The music played in the ending scenes sets the tone perfect. Pic attached is from my 65" Sony 4K

      Another fantastic Frank Darabont film

      Posted
      CrimsonKing42

      Frank Darabont, who previously adapted Stephen King's "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile" finally turns his skills to one of King's horror tales with this suspenseful yarn of a group of small-town Maine residents who are trapped together in a grocery store when a mysterious fog brings on terrifying creatures from another world. Though much of the suspense comes from the beasts outside the store, the true drama is created by the increasing tension between the humans inside. Darabont really knows how to squeeze emotion out of this situation, as he did in his previous work. The 2-Disc edition features a black-and-white version of the film, which was Darabont's original intention. Don't miss out on this excellent thriller.

      Forceast calls for mist

      Posted
      Dwiz

      The movie is based on the book by the same title.It seems that the military has been messing with an experiment called project arrowhead,that's where all the mist comes from.The actors sell the movie pretty much as there locked inside a grocery store wondering who or what is in the mist.Thou some of the characters are dumb as rocks in some sceens.The plot is the same way with the mist blowing into town covering everything with a pure white steam.But the movie is too long, it could have been shorter, they could have left some things out of the final cut.And the ending was terrible, I won't spoil it for you, but it was pretty lame.But if you like horror monsters,violence,and gore then see this one,if not pass on it.
