Darabont’s last film adaptation of King’s writing, The Mist, is now available on Netflix. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
What is Frank Darabont’s The Mist streaming on Netflix about?
When a thick fog descends upon a rural community and claims the lives of anyone unfortunate enough to be caught outside, a small band of survivors seeks refuge in a local grocery store. Now trapped in a darkened cloud of pure horror, the frightened denizens of the town are forced to fend off an advancing horde of murderous monsters.
It is originally written by Stephen King. It has a stellar cast of Thomas Jane, Toby Jones, Laurie Holden, Marcia Gay Harden, and Andre Braugher. By bringing some of the most gruesome creatures to life, Darabont successfully gives the film its eerie touch. Hence, those who can digest the horrors of The Mist on Netflix are likely to walk away with one of the most memorable monster movie experiences they ever had.
