The Mist is a great monster story. The whole plot mostly takes place inside the supermarket (at least the largest horror one). After a nasty storm a strange mist appears. And the things in it.
People escaped the mist and what is lurking in it and now they either have to wait for it to pass or to do something horrible. It isn't surprising, then, that you get a couple of stereotypical characters (an old crazy doom-sayer, a lawyer who is full of himself, a unassuming good guy and so on). The protagonist is stuck with his five-year-old son there.

As I said, it is a great monster story. I really liked that part. Unfortunately, in a story like this I need to root for the main character or at least to accept his actions on some level. That definitely doesn't happen here. I loved the story up to a particular moment that was completely unnecessary. It didn't move the story forward. All it did was to make me lose my interest. ( )

This leaves a lot of unanswered questions hanging in the air but that doesn't bother me. After finishing, my insides feel knotted. ( )

So. I'll never be looking at mist the same again. ( )
