On the two disc edition of The Mist, on disc 2 there is a glorious Black and White version of the film, with an introduction by the director Frank Darabont. Darabont says he originally wanted The Mist to be in B&W and be a throwback to the 50's and 60's horror movies such as Night of the Living Dead, which I felt it had a lot in common with. Darabont says this can be considered his director's cut. I knew he directed two other King favorites The Shawshank Redemption (Two-Disc Special Edition) and The Green Mile, but I didn't realize his other contributions to the horror genre, until I checked out IMDB. Starting in 1980 as a production assistant on Hell Night and going on to write the screenplays for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 - Dream Warriors, The Blob, The Fly II (Collector's Edition), and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.Read more ›

I am a King fan, and unapologetically so. Having said that, I recognize that there are times that the tomes he writes don't translate well directly to the screen. An excellent example is 1408. The screenwriter mades some changes which were genuinely excellent and seemed more "King" than Stephen himself.
I have been keenly anticipating the movie version of The Mist since first reading the story. The short format and essentially single setting seemed perfectly suited to movie making. When I heard that Darabont was going to direct, I couldn't think of anyone better than the director of The Green Mile and Shawshank Redemption. For the vast majority of the movie, it was very much as I expected. The movie was nearly a virtualization of the story, and I mean that in the BEST possible way. I was very impressed with the acting, and direction etc.
And the there was the ENDING.....
As I noted, I have been reading King since the start in the 70s. Unrestrictedly happy endings are just not on in Steve's world, yet basic honesty and effort are usually rewarded in King land. The original ending in The Mist was stark and uncompromising, but left open some hope and future. The group that escaped from the store did the "right" thing and had a future having been rewarded for thier actions. The peope who stayed in the store were never commented on again in the story but were pretty clearly lost as a result of thier lack of personal fortitude- they didn't have that "something" that allowed them to challenge wildly intimidating odds. In the movie, however, the ending showed that the hero and his group had, of course made all the wrong decisions.

Director Frank Darabont successfully adapts yet another King tale. He had done a great job with King's prison tales The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, but is equally good at working on King's thrillers.

***This may contain some spoilers. I think I'm vague enough, but some like to be warned of any potential spoilers within a review. So, here's your warning***

This film is based on a novella, a short novel that is usually less than 150 pages, which helps to keep this film tightly focused on a small band of people trapped in a supermarket as a strange mists surrounds an entire town. Within this mist are incredible monsters that are very effectively produced as part CGI and part puppets. They do look frighteningly real and not as obvious special effects. As with any of these "band of survivors" kind of films there are an odd collection of characters, but I can't label them as stereotypes and that is a welcome change for this genre of film.

All the actors bring a real and human quality to their characters. Thomas Jane, of Deep Blue Sea, King's Dreamcatcher, and husband to Patricia Arquette of NBC's
