Do you like to be scared? I do. When I was a little kid, I would love to watch scary movies to frighten the bejesus out of me and my sisters. My most recent fascination is with a Netflix show The Mist, based on Stephen King’s novella by the same title. The Mist follows three groups of people set around different locations in the town of Bridgton, Maine.

The show starts innocently enough with the townspeople going on about grocery shopping, pulling weeds, and other doing trivial tasks.. As The Mist starts to arrive, hysteria breaks out within the town. When The Mist finally engulfs the town, factions of people start to occur. The first encounter with The Mist is with Bryan Hunt, a military man camping in the woods, with his dog. The watcher realizes something is astray when the dog disappears into The Mist, and does not come back.  Bryan runs to town as a harbinger of what’s to come. The police think that Bryan is on drugs and lock him up. Bryan does not remember who he is, and this leads the police to question him even more. Bryan only has the town’s best interest in mind, and the people do not always realize that.

When wildlife begins to act out of character, Nathalie, a quiet, older woman, and her husband head to town. While they are in town, stranger things begin to occur. People start to wreak havoc while trying to discern what is real and what isn’t. Nathalie makes it to the church, where the priest, Romanov, decided that judgment day has come. Nathalie does not believe this leads to a divide in the church. Nathalie leads the people and figures out why The MIst has come to Bridgton. Romanov and Nathalie butt heads and they have a trial in The Mist.

Kevin Copeland, an everyday dad, focuses on trying to get to his wife and daughter across town. He spends the majority of the show making progress only to be slowed down by an unforeseen force. His wife, Eve, and daughter, Alex, are fighting to survive at the mall as factions begin to form. Kevin and his family have many trials throughout the show while trying to make it to one another.  

Who will survive The Mist? Who knows? I sure do not. Watch till the end to find out. The Mist has a TV16 Mature rating as it deals with difficult underlying themes. This is a show for older viewers. I would recommend The Mist to anyone who would like to get into the horror genre. If you are easily offended by foul language and sacrilegious content, this is probably not the show for you.
