I just watched the movie The Mist, based on Stephen King's book (drceted by Frank Darabont).

The movie's great and all, but for those of you who have seen it, what are your opinions on the ending? I thought it was horrible, the whole idea of it. It had Stephen King written all over it, but damn that sucked. I mean, it was a good ending, but out of any movie I've ever seen that was probably the most negative resolution I've ever seen.

I love how, in a lot of works like this (especially King), one of the main threats to humanity is the people themselves. If you count only the people who were trapped in the store, they killed themselves more than the creatures in the mist did. If it wasn't for that stupid prophecy lady, maybe David and the others would have been able to keep everyone's head straight.

And the things in the fog were so cool. The pharmacy scene was crazy. Good movie, horrible ending.

Not the same ending as in the short story, but the rest of the movie was pretty faithful to the book version (Graveyard Shift?) of short stories. I was surprised it took so long to bring this story to the big screen, and if you ask me, with the exception of "The Shining", it was probably the best movie made from any of his stories.

A friend of mine told me about the Mist, he said it was one of the dumbest movies hes ever seen and I would have to agree with him when I saw what was "in the Mist" and come to think about the movie, the Mist reminded me of John Carpenter's "The Fog", its a cheesy movie now compared to the horror flicks of today, but it was scary to watch back then...considering where I live and it does foggy over here.

Warpaint mentioned Graveyard Shift, that and IT were scary to watch "alone at home and in the dark".

"The Mist," "The Fog," is there a reason people keep on making movies about precipitation?

I think you might be mistaken. The special effects, the plot, and the directing are very unique compared to most other horror movies today, and never have I seen an ending as shocking as the one in the Mist.

Besides, it's pretty originial compared to the bombardment of zombie movies that have been hitting theaters. The idea isn't cheesy at all, especially with the modern military twist, where the monsters are actually from another dimension that was connected to the Earth by a wormhole opened up by the Army. It's a typical science fiction horror movie, yet very unique.

Mistaken about what....a Mist/Fog that contains some Form of Evil from another Time and Dimension and if anyone is caught up and or has wandered into the Fog/Mist is immediately killed and devoured....eh, nothing new and unique there.

The Army opened up a wormhle to another dimension. The mist was the atmosphere of the other dimension and it leaked out through the wormhole, along with a lot of the creatures from the dimension.

And Evil, you aren't devoured as soon as you step into the mist. They made it all the way to a pharmacy in the movie, and the only things stopping them there were acid-web shooting spiders.

^I agree. If the guy really loved his family, he would have risked his life, gotten out, and pushed. Or, they could have found the nearest house and found refuge in the basement. They could have at least not killed themselves and stayed together as a family in the car for a few more days.

"Hey guys! Im gonna shoot you all!" BANG BANG BANG. 2 minutes later m1a2 abrams rolls right past.


Note: Did you guys notice that the lady that just walked out of the store in the beginning was in the back of one of the cars at the end smiling?

Other note: From the direction of the car and the direction of the army, they were actually running away from their only hope. Chances are that the people from the store were freed a long time beforehand.

Other other note: The two smartest guys in the movie were the main character that survived and the sidekick.

Other other other note: When the pistol falls on the hood of the car, it has no blood on it.

Last note, I swear: That huge monster near the end was awesome. THINK about what it took to take that bad boy down...
