The Mist

Right in the nads.

Director Frank Darabont is an old pro at translating Stephen King to the screen, having helmed The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile.

His third time out, he goes for the jugular, delivering a devastating ending that, while different from the original source, drew praise from its writer.

“The ending is such a jolt!,” King said, and the bleak, unforgiving nature of the final scene makes the film it caps one which lingers in the imagination.

There are monsters out there, hidden in the swirling fog, but there are monsters inside as well. Never doubt that.
