Quite spooky—as is to be expected from the great Master of Horror.

Just the premise of The Mist will give you goosebumps: The day after a fierce thunderstorm, a heavy abnormal mist is left in its wake across a small Maine town, obstructing visibility, and acting as a cover for a legion of very strange otherworldly beings, who viciously attack anything or anyone that dares to venture outdoors...

I dared to read The Mist late at night—before going to bed. And I wouldn't advise that any other reader do the same.

The Mist, yet another masterpiece from the legendary collection of the one-and-only Stephen King, is a fast-paced and well-penned horror show that will have its readers terrified of thunderstorms ... Fearful of what they might leave behind - save clean, fresh air.

For the review record, The Mist is a five-star must-read. ( )

This was one of the scariest books I read in high school. I would sit and read on the couch next to a big picture window on the farm and would not realize that the curtains were open and it had gone dark outside. I would look over, realize the curtains were open and it would freak me out so bad I would run up the stairs so fast to my room and hide. Still creeps me out! If you want to be scared, read this book. ( )

The story begins with a sudden and dangerous storm that causes a lot of damage to the small town of Bridgton, Maine. David Drayton takes his son to town for some groceries the next morning only to get socked in by an extremely thick fog. Unfortunately, there are creatures out there in the mist that are like nothing on Earth. Drayton and the others who are trapped in the story must try to come to terms with what it happening while struggling for survival.

Initially published nearly 30 years, the novella is an outstanding example of classic Stephen King; weaving the themes of terror of the unknown, social prejudices and the true quest for life within a very tight framework. ( )

A really good novella! Something is in the mist, and the folks inside the Federal Foods Supermarket don't know what to do! Stay inside, make a break for it, or give "them" a sacrifice! (that last one the idea of hateful Mrs. Carmody) I liked the ambiguous ending, but I will say, I LOVED the ending of the movie version even more! Damn Arrowhead Project... ( )
