The Mist

The Mist is a thinking man’s monster movie. Set during the onset of a possible apocalypse, it brings together a cast of unlikely characters inside a grocery store, as they attempt to battle mysterious beasts man has never encountered. The film is based on a Stephen King short story, which itself is inspired by Chtulu, the world classic horror writer H.P. Lovecraft brought to life, and is directed masterfully by Walking Dead series creator Frank Darabont, so it’s practically oozing with top notch horror cred!
