Then watch what happens next. That’s what made 2007’s The Mist is such a frightening film to experience. It doesn’t help that it originates from the mind of Stephen King, but then Frank Darabont goes and turns it into something where only a marathon of Saturday morning cartoons will help cleanse your pallet. So, of course, it only makes sense that The Mist gets turned into a televisions series. And now two years after it’s initial announcement, the first trailer has dropped. If it’s any indication of what’s to come, then, please, feel free to leave the light one…all of them.
