The Mist 

Review of "The Mist" 7/7/17 by Suzanne
Airs Thursdays 10/9c on Spike

This was a great Stephen King story. I don't remember if I saw the movie or not, but so far, I'm enjoying the series.  A strange mist moves into a town and people start dying. There are creatures in the mist killing people; the mist is very thick and confusing.  Various characters get stuck in the mall and other places around town, trying to fend off the mist and its monsters, and trying not to turn on each other.

Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings) is great as Eve, who has some big scandalous secret involving her younger years; her daughter, Alex (Gus Birney) has been raped by her school's quarterback. Alyssa is angry at Alex's dad, Kevin (Morgan Spector), for letting their daughter go to a party where she was assaulted. Eve and Alex get trapped at the mall with other townspeople.  Kevin gets trapped at the police station with Alex's best friend, Adrian (Russell Posner); a soldier with no memory (except for the mist); and a tough, thuggish young woman.

I don't think I've seen any of the people on this before, so it's filled with virtual unknowns.  The show sometimes seems low-budget, but the special effects and acting are not bad.  I think it's worth checking out.


Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s "The Mist" centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
