What is this really comparable to? Imagine gigantic creatures like from Jurassic Park/World essentially come to Earth from another dimension. The way people react will make you clap your head in disbelief or roll your eyes, possibly. I almost wanted to give it a one star rating for the ending which did not feel true to the rest the film and the characters. As it is, I gave it 2.5 stars. It was fun until that twist ending which seemed a nod to the end of the original Night of the Living Dead. Lots of tension and suspense, the acting is fine for a popcorn thriller. I just felt the entire time that people who were supposed to be tough and hardy survivalist types living around a lake with a pull yourself up by your bootstraps and do it yourself mentality who survive around nature all the time, hunt, fish and etc would have been a lot smarter in the way they handled the situation. They would have known basic things about smoking bugs out rather than dangerous fire. Instead, the feeling the movie is written a bit by someone unfamiliar themselves with living out in rural areas would. People would have used insect repellent for goodness sake and other natural easy to find things available as basics. I found it interesting that scientists were blamed and questioned and were responsible for what happened but not one single person there was really a naturalist, scientist, biologist or etc. No one noted, or wrote down the behavior of the animals, creatures from the Mist, or lists of how they interacted. This seemed implausible. One of the first things to note would be what creatures hunted each other.
