My husband is a big fan of Stephen King's novels. Thanks to him, I've watched quite a few King movies. (I'm a big scaredy cat so I never tried to watch his movies on my own.) One of our favorite King films is The Stand. OK, OK, that's a television mini-series and not a feature film but it was still really good. The pacing of the story and the characterizations came together to produce a chilling story. My husband also liked the science behind the virus. He was a biology major in college after all. A couple of days ago, we saw the trailer for The Mist by Stephen King. At first, we weren't sure if this was a King movie or not. However, once the title card crossed the screen, my husband started shouting with joy. It turns out that The Mist was his very favorite novel and now he can't wait to see the film adaptation.
You really do have to watch the trailer. I was a little confused since I haven't read the book but after talking to my husband a bit, it turned out that I saw what I thought I saw. Creepy things come out of The Mist! I have to admit that even though I don't like scary movies, I am looking forward to this one. It must be a side-effect of being married to a horror fan.
