The Mist Reviews

The Mist is a creature feature in which the monsters are almost incidental, but the panic and fear-mongering that comes with the territory is what ultimately causes the most chaos.

The Mist has a lot of the elements to be one of the great horror films, but it never quite puts it all together. It's still very good, but a few missteps keep it from ever being more than that.

The black-and-white version's stark contrasts give greater claustrophobic force to the fragility of civilization when ideology grows as deadly as any marauding beasts. Prepare also to be knocked cold and gut-kicked for good measure by its ending.

Georgia Straight

Writer-director Frank Darabont had skillfully translated the human drama of Stephen King's work in The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption , but he seems hopelessly lost in The Mist.

Window to the Movies

The Mist paints [its] divides starkly -- perhaps a bit too much so -- but combined with its spooks and gore, it makes for effective, smart entertainment.

The Mist divides those who want cheap escapist thrills from those who like their horror with real heart, brains, and courage.

Acerta ao compreender a natureza do texto original, que empregava o terror como uma mera ferramenta para analisar o comportamento de seus personagens e os dilemas morais e religiosos que os impelem uns contra os outros.

Somewhere along the way, [director Frank] Darabont just got lost in the fog, and he never found his way out.

Shadows on the Wall

Unusually dark and gritty, with ace B-movie writing and direction from Darabont and a collection of full-on performances from a gifted cast.

Like Shyamalan's Signs but without the salvationist coda, The Mist is a bleak look at what happens when faith, hope and charity have all got lost in the fog.

Wait until you see the end of this film! It was one of the most horrific endings I have ever seen.

'The Mist is a classic monster movie turned morality play, and for a while it works on both counts.

Groucho Reviews

Both a gory monster movie and a Twilight Zone-styled morality play on mob mentality and religion run amok. [DVD review]

A great achievement in many ways, Darabont's biggest misstep is his final submission to the road more traveled.

A horde of plus size nuclear bugs stops by to shoplift and chow down on some take-out humans, favoring their homo sapien dinner fare feisty and playing hard to get, and never bothering to stop at the cash register.

Colorado Springs Gazette

Whereas King's short story ends ambiguously, Darabont has fashioned a denouement that just may be the most nihilistic I have ever witnessed in a film.

With all due respect to Stephen King and Frank Darabond, military experiments as a cause for science fictioned creatures is yawningly unoriginal. But go see The Mist, just for Marcia Gay Harden's amazing, chillingly accurate portrayal
