Re: Just watched Stephen King's The Mist....

I really wish they had opted for a more ambiguous ending. Up until then, I thought it was a great movie that I would get on DVD and pop in on evenings when I want some good survival horror. After finishing the film, I think it's a great movie I could never stand to watch again. Speaking only for myself, I would have been willing to trade some of the shock value and thematic unity for re-watchability. Them driving off into the mists, as the original story ended, would have been sufficiently bleak that it wouldn't have broken with the film's mood. Not enough resolution, perhaps...

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
