News & Interviews for The Mist: Season 1
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.
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.
The original movie surprised viewers with low expectations, and the TV version just might do the same.
