Warning: Once again this article will be filled with profanity, so please be aware. Normally I don’t like disclaimers, but it’s a necessary touch that you guys are going to have to get used to unfortunately. Just in case….also…spoilers, but grow up. The movie has been out for years now.
Welcome once again to your weekly dose of the awful and terrifying! I, as always, am your host Arthur Harkness, and this week I am bringing you something that is slightly funny yet awesomely scary at the same time. Not for most conventional reasons, but more because I laughed my ass off while watching this movie in theaters, which I will detail later in this article. Stephen King is a master of his craft, and even though most of the movies based on his novels have ranged from okay to “oh god what were they thinking?”, you still have to respect the guy. Not everything he writes is easily translatable to the big screen, but dammit if they won’t try. One such piece was the novella titled “ The Mist”, in which a town is besieged by unseen forces swirling around in a dense fog so thick you can’t see two feet in front of you. But that’s not the only part, there’s more to this mist than meet the eye…..because it’s so thick you can’t fucking see (I thought I explained that to you already?) In all seriousness, there’s goddamn tentacle monsters and giant dicks and titty lions all up in that shit…..maybe not the titty lions….but still!! Let’s take a look shall we?
