Have you watched the trailers for The Mist by Stephen King yet? A couple of years ago Jeff and I rented The Secret Window starring Johnny Depp, another of Stephen King's thrillers. Johnny Depp was a writer in that movie who insisted that some mysterious "cowboy" type was complaining that Depp plagiarized his mystery. I can still hear him say, "You stole my story." The story kept me on edge throughout the entire movie, seeming to be so real and I guess that's why it intrigued me so much. Then at the end I found out that Johnny Depp's character was... well I don't want to spoil it for you if you've never seen it.
Needless to say, Mr. King has a way with weaving suspense and fright into a complex and well thought out story. After watching the trailers for The Mist I thought I might actually like to watch this one too. I probably wouldn't want to see it late at night before going to bed, though!
It appears that in this story there are some sort of alien type creatures in a mist that come over this town. A Bible toting woman wants to offer a blood sacrifice so that the creatures will leave and she demands the life, then, of a young boy. Hmmmm.
Well, if any of you see the movie when it comes out (November 21 in theaters), let me know what you think.
