A look at the seedy and sometimes geeky underworld of cinema

The Mist is probably one of the best Stephen King short stories I had ever read. And I admit when I saw the trailer it seemed like something I wanted to watch. And it was mostly.
The Mist explores the social dynamics of people trapped inside a supermarket by an unseen monster that's cloaked by a mysterious mist. As the people fight for survival not only from the monsters but from a growing faction of people following the words of a local religious nut.
The film was awesome, a great blend of suspense, horror, and even a little welcome humor. The special effects were perfect, a lot higher quality than I was expecting. The actors were just perfect for their roles.
