Spike TV has released digital features that introduce viewers to the main characters of the television series. The series looks to center a town that becomes plagued with a mysterious mist.
Residents fear for their lives. Locals barricade themselves inside of a department store. This looks to follow the 2007 film adaptation directed by Frank Darabont with a major twist. The production is not a TV adaptation of the film, which is based on the original Stephen King novella. I have not yet read the story, but I saw the film directed by Darabont, so I will go from this reference as a starting point.
Torpe’s production takes a world of its own, despite being based on the story. Remembering the Darabont film, it centered a small town that became plagued by a mysterious mist. This stirred the locals into a frenzy, to where everyone locked themselves in a supermarket, hoping to keep safe. This much Torpe takes in the series.
The series diverge into its own world into two factors: the emotional off stories of the residents, and the entities that are within the mist. The series looks to put a huge spin on forces of undetermined origins. Observing the videos, it looks to take more of a religious or spiritual theme. This is speculative by the brief snips of some angel or demon shown.
There are also flashes of other creatures, but nothing bizarre as in Darabont’s film. These were more ordinary creatures. I remember seeing an owl, and some kind of winged insects; perhaps butterflies. Everything else that is within the mist is all a blur at this point.
Then there’s the whole drama and suspense of the backstories of the residents. One for certain is a young woman trying to protect her child at all costs; not only from the dangers in the mist, but also from a sexual predator.
The trailer and the teasers are suspenseful and intriguing and make the viewer excited for more. If the production team does a good job with the execution, this might be one of the next best series since American Horror Story.
The Mist originally published in 1980 by Viking Press. The film adaptation released in 2007. Stephen King is a master of Horror, releasing countless novels and stories since 1973. Decades later, his works still live on, retold through the filmmakers.
Christian Torpe is a well-known writer. His works include Rita, Silent Heart, and Far. He won the Bodil Best Screenplay in 2015. He was also nominated for several other awards.
