From the director of King adaptations The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile now comes The Mist, about people who get trapped in a rural supermarket when a strange fog envelops the store. The mist brings the motley crew together, but it’s their personal demons that tear them apart. ”It’s not so much about the monsters outside,” the director says. ”It’s about the monsters inside, trapped with you, your friends who are now going crazy.”
