Need a good fright? How about a slick thriller that will get your mind racing? Whether it’s monsters in the mist, serial killers, aliens or predators, there’s something here to chomp popcorn to while trying to keep your eyes open. The variety of talent involved, from Stephen King to Uwe Boll, is enough to keep this season’s horror films and thrillers intriguing.

“Stephen King’s The Mist”
Starring:
Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Andre Braugher, Laurie Holden, Toby Jones, William Sadler, Frances Sternhagen, Jeffrey DeMunnDirector: Frank DarabontStory: After a thunderstorm, a cloud of mist envelopes a small town. A group of people, including artist David Drayton (Jane) and his 5-year-old son, get trapped in a grocery store. There are dangerous creatures within the mist, and while all signs point to the cause being a local military base, some of the townspeople (including Harden) begin to believe that it could be the wrath of God. Buzz: Darabont (“Shawshank Redemption, “Green Mile”) has proved that he knows how to bring a Stephen King story to the screen. At this year’s Comic-Con, he described the film as “a harrowing, intense movie.” He added, “It’s got a hard R rating.” What’s nice about Darabont’s King adaptations is that they usually focus on the characters; however, Jane (“The Punisher”) is hardly Tim Robbins or Tom Hanks, so it remains to be seen if the characters will be as interesting as the monsters.
