The Mist

Hello my Freaky Darlings,

Now that the silly season is almost over, I’ll try and get things back to normal over here. This weeks movie is The Mist (2007).

I read Stephen Kings short story The Mist, it was part of his collection of short stories called Skeleton Crew, a few years ago. I found the slight changes that they made rather interesting. On the whole they stuck quite closely to the original and only really changed the ending. Kings ending was far more hopeful. The movies ending was incredibly sad and depressing. The written and movie version did a great job of depicting the baser side of human nature that comes out when our survival is at stake. Pretty scary and thought provoking stuff.

Have you read the story or seen the movie? What did you think?

  1. Hi Joan, I definitely did not like the ending of the movie. I haven’t read the book, but I am glad to hear it was a more hopeful ending.
