This is a flawless horror movie.
This was easily one of the worst films ever made.Now with that being said, I did like this movie up until "The Shermanator" gets killed. This film was full of gratuitous events and poor character flaws...*Established that there are creatures that are attracted to light.We'll get back to this one...* Over 500 years ago man knew you don't leave oil on the ground/floor to get kicked around and wasted on burning a person instead of a torch or lamp.* If you have a psycho religious zealot in your midst that is the first one you are going to have to take out, to avoid what happens anyway. And why did they let the soldier get murdered? Oh once she calls for the blood of the kid Mr.State Champion Marksman (MSCM) will waste 2 bullets to put her down, but not when it first should have happened when her and her minions attacked the soldier.* Then when he gets to the vehicle does he stay on his toes? Nope he looks all relieved like " whew, I made it" forgetting that "there is something in the mist".* Now for the worst part of this poor excuse for a film, It appears that these poor survivors drive for a long time, and they pass at least one of these creatures that does absolutely nothing to them, and yes they hear lots of them but don't really run into that many, until they run out of gas. Now because MSCM, had to waste an extra bullet On Psycho Zealot, bullets they didn't have enough to waste, there is not enough to carry out the suicide pact. So the dad say's "he'll shoot everyone and figure something else out for himself. Now lets remember that nothing has attacked them in a long time, but he goes ahead and kills his own kid and the other 3 in the vehicle. Next we see him firing the empty pistol into his mouth and being hysterical, and yes if any sane person had to do that this how they should be but I don't think the situation warranted this. SO he gets out and starts to call out into the mist for one of the blood thirsty creatures to attack, and you hear more sounds, and the mist starts to clear, and low and behold it's the United States military doing what it does best, KICKIN' *** AND TAKIN' NAMES! Get it? Now he has to live with knowing if only he had waited a little longer his son and the others would still be alive.So here I am losing 2 hrs and 5 minutes of my life I can't get back. It's due to films like this as to why I'm so critical of films to begin with.\,,/

Ok, reading all these reviews made by obviously idiotic people has just made me mad. So mad that i registered just to comment on this!1st off, this film is great.. But the people saying otherwise and trying there hardest to find something bad obviously either havent seen any good movies, or dont know ANYTHING about the human mind...ok, to Dennis G.. *Did you ever consider that the people in the movie are smarter than you? They put oil on the floor for FAST ACCESS. If you put a mop and a pail up on a counter its more likely to be knocked over by even gravity than if you put it on the floor. It also provides an easy way to pick up the mop (mops are meant to be that low when grabbed, did you know that?), and the same reason you dont mop your house with the bucket sitting on a table.*Dont try to think for one second like you'd be some ultimate badass in the middle of an apocalyptic state like theres... Most likely you'd be in a corner crying... But even the most savage of people know/knew that you DONT just kill someone for no reason. If your grandma was standing beside you and you both saw a solar eclipse that seemed like the end and she said "Gods coming to punish the wicked" would you slice through her with a pocket knife? Idiot...*In the midst of an apocalyptic event like that peoples minds are easily fooled and constantly hunting for an illusion of safety. They had 1 mission.. get to the truck and go. Once he was there he obviously felt safe since he's accomplished his mission, so therefore... You should ALWAYS consider peoples psyche. Directors do what they do because they are smart enough to think about all possible scenarios.*In the dinosaur ages not ALL dinos were dangerous. If you'll notice, alot of the monsters they drove by looked as if they'd be more of the herbivorous type. Like the BIG GIANT one? Kinda reminded me of a long neck, so think about that too.*Also, did you ever THINK that THAT WAS THE TWIST?! What more can you ask for an ending than that? The marksman ALSO said if you'd LISTEN that he was a state champ many years ago.. have you ever heard the phrase "if you dont use it, you'll lose it"? Most likely his aim has gone down in time and isnt as steady, not to mention hes older himself so his body isnt the same as back then..So no.. we dont get it you fruitcup. Every argument you wrote was easily destroyed by someone who actually thinks outside of a tiny box. OWNED

A flawless horror movie.??? This has got to be a joke, right?
I agree with you on all points Dennis G and some.
Why were the idiots so keen to send the sherminator out the roller door into the mist to prove there was nothing there yet terrified to go out the front door of the supermarket?
After the sherminator ordeal, they ponder over how they can prove to the others what just happened, surely that was partly the reason he hacked away at the tenticle till he chopped it off, the physical proof was right there.
What was the need for the main character to explain the bulk of what was about to happen in the film with the speech about how the religious nut will convert everyone and pointing out the flaws of human nature?
This sites rating system is seriously flawed, how can a film likes this receive 72%? (Which is high for a horror movie). How can any (so called) critic find anything about this film to praise?
This film cost me £3.99 on sky box office and over 2 hours of my life and I'm pissed off!

Flaws I found in the plot:
1) What??? Were they a town of Amishes or something??? Not a single person had a cell phone??? I find that oh so unbelievable.
2) They were in supermarket for crying out loud. Are you to tell me that the store was fresh out of battery operated Radios???
Oh I dunno perhaps the mist was so thick that it got to their brains preventing any recollection of technology except on how to operate lights, shoot a gun or drive a car. Definitely a movie for people who love movies for the acting rather than how believable the plot is. I certainly do not agree that this film deserves the 72% Tomatometer however

To Bruce,-In the beginning they did try and use there cell phones, but the service was out if youd have paid attention.. -Most likely they tried the radios probably sometime that night. But another thought would be that since the cell phones werent working and the hard lines werent working then perhaps they assumed that radios wouldnt work either. Id figure that as well if i was in there posision.

You guys are overthinking. I personally don't think it's flawless but it's a great film anyway. And if you think this is the worst film ever made you haven't watched many movies.

This is the worst movie. Terrible acting, ridiculously, embarrassingly bad special effects, one cliche after another. And the ending? Please. Terrible. Thomas Jane makes Keanu Reeves look like Marlon Brando. He's awful. The scene in the grocery store when the alarms are sounding, the mist is enveloping- do you really think people would be TAKING TURNS TALKING? People would be panicked, clamoring, bargaining, freaking out. The red necks, the Jesus freak- one vacant, pathetic cliche after another. This is a non-thinking person's horror movie. A movie for people who have zero sophistication or taste. Honestly, I'm offended by how bad this movie was. I think Thomas Jane's wife purposely spun herself up in that web so she wouldn't have to be in that movie any longer. The beginning- when the friggin' tree destroys his property? They have NO REACTION! Any normal home owner not on quaaludes would be freaking out. Pathetic. Honestly- I want to know how someone could buy the tentacle special effects. I was wincing, they were so horrible. If you want to see a horror film that actually matters, that actually portrays real terror and emotion, try some of the following: Diabolique, The Shining, The Vanishing, The Orphanage, Rosemary's Baby, etc. Not this awful elephant turd of a movie.

To La V,-Have you ever actually heard the storm alarms souding? I have considering i live on Tornado Alley.. When you hear that alarm you dont automatically jump up and start flailing your arms like the idiot you think humans are.. No, you sit there and look around to see if you can see what the cause of the alarm even is. And if you saw a huge cloud with a man covered in blood running out would you seriously run INTO it?! Also, can you tell me how you saw they didnt have a reaction? Id like to know if you have a version of the movie that i dont! Because on MY version that im watching right now for the 10th time.. it shows them walking down the stairs and THEN the tree hits and it cuts right there.. How do you know they werent at the bottom of the stairs saying to each other "omg, what was that?" How do you know?I honestly dont think anyone here thought before they posted any comments lol. Just stop downloading bootleg movies and go read a freakin book people! Or maybe go and explore the goddang world outside of your neighborhood walmart lol.

this film is a horror guys? yes?
theyre trying to entertain an audience, its not arthouse.
its not trying to have pracitcality, its a horror. were meant to get scared.
you were obviously having a bad day when you watched it, or thinking it over too much, enjoy the film, stop analysing every detail.
i thought it was a decent storyline, with a lot of emotion attached. Not PERFECT acting but ive certainly seeen hundered of worse performances.
creatures could have done with a bit more work, but its debateable.
mmmmmm b, youve hit the nail!

ok so clearly the people here prefer the mindless OTT violent saws to this stuff. I agree totally it isnt flawless, but so what if they didnt encounter any creatures at the end?? the woman who left at the beginning survived, yet others didnt. this paved the way for an ending that didnt look for a nice happy ending, or a stupid "oooh look it was all a dream" twist. it was a choice made out of desperation, and a human decision of knowing his son died quickly rather than eaten alive by some creature that COULD be lurking.
seriously guys at least this movie treats its audience with a bit of respect and doesnt just flood you with dismemberment and screamy teens. i bet when the next saw comes out you'll whine that theres no originality.

There are far too many irrational and flat-out dumb moments in this film. Flawless? No way. The script was awful, the acting was awkward, and the CGI was cheesy and cheap.

I ENJOY ATTACKING OTHERS FOR HAVING AN OPINION DIFFERENT FROM MINE ON THE INTERNET USING ALL CAPS TO MAKE ME SEEM LOUDER.

god people you need to watch more bad movies, its not a flawless film i admit, i.e the monsters and some effects aren't that great but the script and plot overall is good, ending cud have been slightly better but hey.
Dec 12 - 12:17 PM
Lol. People here are so easily offended by opinions, it's hilarious. Anyway, I love this movie -- there is nothing I would leave and nothing I would add to it. And, in my eyes, that's a flawless movie.
