The Mist is a typical Stephen King tale that will periodically find you on the edge of your seat without realizing you have moved there. It has some of King's usual story lines with a little bit of familiar theatrical story lines from Aliens, Tremors, and what seems to be a popular scenario these days of attacks by unknown creatures from foggy environs. The cast is credible and many of the characters are familiar from television dramas. There is a strong touch of the biblical chapter of Revelations throughout the movie as attempts are made to explain the horror through biblical passages. If you like this genre in general and Stephen King in particular, you will enjoy this movie.
