Re: Frank Darabont's The Mist *SPOILERS*

I thought Darabont went too far with the ending. I think he wanted to try to top King in terms of nihilistic endings (something King is known for) and that's why we got that ending. It's very gut wrenching and to me lessens my enjoyment of the film being that it comes out of nowhere and disrupts the essence of the film. When I do watch it on cable I tend to turn the film off a few minutes before it ends to keep it more like King's original ending in my mind.
