we just watched The Mist last night - what an awesome movie! Classic Stephen King creatures and suspense. but what I liked most about the movie is how much it makes you think about the human condition and what would people do if they were cut off from the rest of the world - no communication with anyone and monsters (or any life threatening crises) outside your door. Marcia Gay Harden is incredible as Ms. Carmody, an extreme bible preaching local who tries to convince everyone it is the "end of times"... Also, it has one of the most tragic and surprising movie endings ever - I don't usually gasp and yell "NO!" at the screen - I was completely shocked - I couldn't stop thinking about the movie all night.
