Tentacles, spiders, and flying bugs. Oh my! When a mysterious mist rolls into town, a group of people trapped in a grocery store come into conflict with the dangerous creatures outside and the growing tension inside. Sounds crazy? Sure is! But we had plenty of parts of this movie that we really liked. Aside from a bit of the good old horror movie stupidity, it’s an engaging movie. Director Frank Darabont created a new ending that made Stephen King himself jealous, so yeah, it’s pretty dark.
Based on the book of the same title written by Stephen King, comes a movie adapted and directed by Frank Darabont of Walking Dead fame. Tom Hanks and Michael Clark Duncan star in this gut-wrenching film about prisoners on death row in 1930s Louisiana. Though it’s a powerful movie, it is not without its flaws and harmful stereotypes. (And pro tip, watch this movie on HBO Max.)
