Movie of da week: The Mist

In case you didn't know just yet, staticEchoes is a big fan of Stephen King. Most of the movies based on King's work? Not so much.

However, though many of the man's novels and short stories get turned into horrid trainwrecks, every now and then a quality piece of cinema comes along with The Spooky One's name tacked onto it.

I give you The Mist. Based on a short story, this one comes from the guy who brought us The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile and a delicious and ingenious snack food that incorporates pretzels, pepperoni and three kinds of cheeses. While the snackums are delicious, those two flicks are some of the best King movies you'll find.

Monsters crawling out of the darkness not being a big part of those previous two pieces, I'm looking forward to seeing how The Mist is handled. Go watch, or face the consequences.
