The Mist, if you watch the sort of movies I do, is a must see, if you can stomach two very specific facts:
- It’s a horror movie that pulls no punches whatsoever.
- The director respects his audience sufficiently to gut-punch them repeatedly throughout the film.
GOOD FLICK. But not an easy flick. I can think of several people off the top of my head who need to *not* see it. But if you can handle a horror movie that takes off the kid gloves early, and gets really rough with its audience, this is definitely worth your time.
And as a side note, spoilers count in this one, so I’m not saying anything.
