    The Mist...

    Post  RIG on Mon 22 Feb 2010, 1:23 am

    Just watched it... Wow! Something based on King's work that wasn't hokey and was actually gut wrenchingly horrifying... makes me wonder which is better the movie (which is amazing) or the book...

    Spoiler, basic gist... End of the world, societal disintegration/begins to eat itself with a Lovecraftian Cthulhu backdrop... There's more but I don't want to ruin it...

    In a word... Grueling!...

    But worth it...

    Wow, I saw that movie last week and it scared the bee-gee-bees out me because it was too close to the truth. We have been hearing from the people with the CERN project saying that "they could bring something back from another plane". I sure hope they don't create what we saw in The Mist.

    Yeah, that could be bad!... Wink

    Although the true horror was the monstrous behaviour that the folk trapped in the grocery store started displaying... affraid

    We quit watching it after only about 20 minutes because it was horrifying and gruesome. Can't handle movies like that although from what you guys say, I should have stuck with it a little longer. I can't take blood and guts movies.

    It does have the blood and guts thing going, but it's not done just for the sake of blood and guts... it's just enough as a plot device to keep the characters fearful/trapped by that fear...

    If you can get past that aspect of the movie, then you'll see what I mean about the psychological aspect... I should say that I'm not a big fan of the blood and guts movies (although I do watch them on ocassion), for a horror movie to really freak me out it has to grab my psyche and wring it out like a towel... this one did that well, for me anyway...

    There's an aspect of the movie that I won't go into details about... but it makes me wonder what the Bible quoters here would be like in an end of the world/crisis situation... Suspect

    Hi Rig, I think it depends on what you mean when you say Bible quoters. Cuz almost everyone quotes the Bible at sometime or another, doesn't mean they really truly follow it etc. or maybe even believe it. I suspect there will be a lot of people that will call out for God to help em. Seems like you always hear that when people are in real trouble they call out to Him. There will also be people that say F-God and refuse him through till the end. There will be people that that will deny Him when the going gets tough. I know Isaiah 24 is pretty scary. It says "20 The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls—never to rise again." Suspect

    Heh... apologies, I should have been more descriptive... quoting the Bible as your Spiritual compass is one thing, but the rabid frothing at the mouth types that use it as a weapon is more along the lines of what I'm talking about... affraid Wink
