I'm really curious to see how they adapt the old novella by Steven King for this movie, and if they stray significantly from the original story. I already suspect some are going to feel this movie is a bit too similar to the movie "The Fog". Fog, Mist...meh...you just know something nasty is suddenly going to grab and kill whoever goes out into it.
I got an overall impression from the story that horror was kind of a minor element and the mist (along with the creatures within it) are mainly a device used to suddenly place an assortment of townspeople into a confined space so the worst and best of human nature could come out when they faced a fear of the unknown. That while the creatures in the mist could be deadly, the humans confined together could be even more scary once they begin to turn on each other.
I never saw the fog, but this movie looks awesome. I love Stephen King. His other novella made movie, secret window, was great.
Totally not interested. Looks like complete and utter trash.
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

ppl note this Stephen King writes lots of books, meaning that he has lots of crappy ones and only few good novels that are worth turning into movie
I didn't like the novella and the movie looks like a rehash of previous horror movies.
1408 was fairly interesting though, and the Shining has its chilling moments. And the part where the kid dies in Pet Sematary was just...ugh.
Some of the movie adaptations of King's stories are pretty good, for instance The Shining, Salem's Lot, and Carrie. Others like Cujo were too much of a joke...yeah fer sure, let's terrorize the mother and her kid with a rabid dirty St. Bernard dog.
Don't no about this horror movie. There comin alot out this year, but they all look alike.
C'mon. Cujo was scary ^^
Cujo was the shit. Those dogs are tough.
Grin, I couldn't help but laugh that they tried to pass off a St. Bernard drool problem for rabid foaming-at the-mouth. Although the muddy slobber on that dog alone would be enough to make most people run in fear if they thought he was going to jump on their nice clean clothes.

If this new movie follows the original story, a lot of people already have a good idea of how this movie will end, so why another remake now that will seem similar to so many other post-apocalyptic virus turns humans into zombies movies (like 28 Days Later)?
Hollywood can make as many stupid remakes as they want, in the past few years, better movies are comin from China, India, Spain etc. Hollywood sucks. No blood, bad script, bad Actors (if they can be called actors).
I think its called Horror fest, (all the horror movies I was alking about. They are all comin 11/9-18 Seen the trailer to most of em, they ALL look the same, so disapointed. there hasn't been a good horror movie since Chainsaw, and Aliens..
Check em out on imdb.
28 days is okay, Anybody seen the sequel??
