Can you go wrong with a horror film adapted from a Stephen King writing? If The Shining has anything to say about it, no, you can’t. Based on King’s novella of the same name published in 1980, The Mist brings another one of Stephen King’s scary stories to life.

Normally, thunderstorms just bring rain and maybe some wind. However, in a Stephen King story, a thunderstorm unleashes a thick mist full of creatures and monsters. Survivors of the thunderstorm hide away from the mist and its beings in a supermarket, where they also try to survive the mounting tensions.

Directed by Frank Darabont, who also directed two other Stephen King adaptations with The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, The Mist received positive reviews for its dark tensity. Before The Mist hits the small screen in a TV adaptation, watch the 2007 film on Amazon Prime Video!
