The film version of Stephen King's The Mist, directed by Frank Darabont, is out on DVD. I'm excited to see the Black & White version of the movie. It is extremely effective, surprising and bleak as bleak gets.
If you're a sucker for horror fare, but are a bit turned off by the fetish-for-icky-dummies thing that's been dominating scary movies as of late, I definitely recommend checking The Mist out.
It's for adults. And it made me nervous.
Seems David Johnston felt the same way, back when it was in release.
