Wondered why the the list price for this 2-disc version is so high? A friend told me apparently why.

The director wanted to original film the movie in Black & White, but the studio refused. So as an *Extra* for this release, the entire "Director's Cut" of the film *in* black & white is part of the set.

Like, WOW.

I just wish they'd sell a version that is JUST the black & white cut. I don't want the theatrical.

Which disk has the B&W version? 1 or 2?

Disc 2 has the superior BW version. Worth the price if you can find it.

When you get ready to watch the THE MIST, you could just make note of the color setting of your television then adjust it all the way down to zero, watch the movie and return the color back to its original setting when you are finished.

Not the same thing at all. The black & white version was graded and mastered in B&W under the supervision of the director, just grey scaling the colour would lose all the contrast tweaks the director would have used for black and white.

Or you can buy the 1 disc and set color to 0 :)

how does removing all the color make it better?

It makes it feel bleaker, starker, and spookier, in my opinion - like the most terrifying episode of The Twilight Zone ever. It makes the scenes of people disappearing into the mist much more effective, and the B&W makes it all but impossible to tell what's CGI and what's a model or puppet (aside from some of the tentacles which are obviously CGI).

is the B&W version different in content in any way? or is it just an "artsy" B&W version of the same movie?

The content is identical apart from being monochrome.
