      I watched this movie in segments. I have to admit that at first I was completely intrigued.

      But as time progressed, my interest waned somewhat, and I was wondering whether I should start the movie again.

      I did, and then I realized that it wasn’t me that caused me to lose interest, it was the


      movie itself.

      Don’t get me wrong, the concept of The Mist was completely scary.

      I would be terrified if a fog moved in over the city and claimed people’s lives.

      But when I discovered that the giant insects and creatures were actually attacking the people, I was taken aback, disgusted, and then I became ...


      • disinterested.

        This is because as good as the story probably is (had I read it) - I just am not interested in big monsters killing people.

        I know that there are lots of social and religious undertones that I’m failing to mention.

        And I know that the scarier parts are supposed to be related to

        human nature in the face of catastrophe.

        But I just couldn’t get into this movie.

        I felt the same way about some of Stephen King’s other book/film adaptations.

        I know that King is not fully responsible for directing and putting everything together.

        I just think that the movies have gone downhill since “Pet Sematary.
