Critic Reviews for The Mist Season 1

All Critics (46) | Top Critics (19)

Not nearly enough horror, way too much exposition (in the opener). Even the fog seems a little bored hanging around for something to happen.

This version tries to have it both ways - goofy and serious - and leaves viewers on the outside looking in, rooting for the mist instead of those running from it.

The Mist could be a satisfyingly complex chiller, scaring viewers not just with unexpected jumps and amped-up creepy crawlies, but with the more human monsters who are all trapped together inside, waiting out the weather.

There's something in the mist. And we're off!

The original movie surprised viewers with low expectations, and the TV version just might do the same.

Given the understandably low budget, it would have been smarter to play with the unknown enemy in the mist instead of making such a literal horror show.

A solid reimagining of the Stephen King novella of the same name, The Mist is an intriguing new example of scary TV.

Jun 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The Mist is one of the most disappointing series of the summer. I had great hopes for this adaptation of the classic King story, but unfortunately, it didn't meet any of my expectations.

Jan 17, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Spike's new series based on "The Mist" (which was made into a Frank Darabont film in 2007, with a controversial altered ending) wasn't written by King, but it does the author proud.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

Like King's last TV series, "Under the Dome," "The Mist" would seem to have a short shelf life. One hour with these people and you'll be rooting for the critters.

Jan 17, 2020 | Full Review…

The first episode is an excellent example of the power of human nature as horror, but only time will tell if The Mist can avoid disappearing into the fog of failed TV.

Jun 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The Mist has provided solid entertainment, concisely defined characters and intriguing situations from which a second run is more or less guaranteed.

Audience Reviews for The Mist: Season 1

  • Nov 28, 2019
    At first I thought it was going to have that mystery element of the 2007 movie. Also it had the Stephen King association. To my sad disappointment each episode's story line was paper thin and predictable thus eliminating all suspense and mystery. Despite the huge critique of the acting, I do think that most lead actors gave stellar performances. But acting can only go so far when the general story plot is poorly written and not well developed. The nature-pagan ideology vs organised christian religion sub theme was also explored rather harshly and biased, leaving the viewer disliking certain characters, representing these factions even more. If the aim of the writers and producers were to create a pop horror show, they should stuck to the old tried and tested formula : Make the lead characters likable and universally identifiable. That's pop culture. Stick to it. If their aim was to create a horror show, depicting the unfolding and development of complex personality types in a crisis situation, they failed miserably, as the viewer acquired very little understanding of psychopathic behavior exhibited and ended up just hating, if not all the characters of the series. Not everyone can be a Lynch to be skilled enough to this.

    Pandering Garbage... If your into SJW nonsense than this series is for you! Just tell the story and stop filling it with all this fluff about SJW problems.... Stephen king would be disgusted in this garbage... God? Is this what TV show are like nowadays... pure garbage!

    The Mist my a***! Stephen King would be ashamed. This is just some trash US version of a librarian soap opera with focusing on introducing you from the 2nd minute to every 6000 gender and sexuality propaganda with wannabe "teen stars". The Mist? Where is it? is there any? No! This is a disgrace...
  • Oct 14, 2019
    This is a truly terrible show. You want every character to die (immediately), it makes no sense, the characters do the most pointless idiotic things, the script if woeful, the "acting" even worse. The plot has more holes than a tramps underpants ... its simply awful.
  • Oct 03, 2019
    I've never seen a show with so many unlikable characters. You start to cheer for the Mist by the end. The cancellation of season two is a blessing from the Mist gods.
  • Sep 18, 2019
    first of all, acting was bad. characters make it hard for you to root for them to survive. this show makes you hate the wrong people. an accused rapist hanging out with the person who accused him? infuriating. you can't even feel bad for the gay adopted son or the grieving mother because they're both shitty characters with no point of redemption.

    Intermittently interesting, I found some scene quite boring and not very well developed; by the way, it passed the time.

    What a lousy propaganda piece full of cliches
